Family Dentistry at Centre Dentaire Anjou
The Centre Dentaire Anjou relies on a large, qualified team to offer you a comprehensive range of care. Not only does our team include dental specialists who are always ready to intervene, but we also count on our general dentists to offer family dentistry care which is essential to the health of your smile.
In the following, we present what there is to know about family dentistry care that you can find at our clinic, as well as information on the importance of regular dental follow-up with our general dentists.
The General Dentist: An Important Professional for Your Health
The general dentist, also called a dental surgeon, has completed a doctorate in dentistry lasting 4 to 5 years. With this comprehensive training, the general dentist becomes an expert in oral health and in the care that is essential to its maintenance, whether its aim is preventive or to intercept pathologies. General dentists are therefore qualified to perform a wide variety of dental treatments like performing surgeries, designing and installing dental restorations, etc. At Centre Dentaire Anjou, our general dentists work closely with our team of dental specialists.
Don’t be surprised if our general dentists refer you to these specialists if they believe your condition might benefit from their expertise. In fact, dental specialists have more advanced training in one of the 10 dental specialties recognized by the Ordre des Dentistes du Québec. Their intervention is therefore relevant in more complex cases.
Our Family Dentistry Services at Centre Dentaire Anjou
You and your family will find all the dental services you need in order to maintain your oral health, or to recover it in the event of illness or problems. General and family dentistry care is for patients of all ages: children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. Their goal is always the same: to keep your teeth and the soft tissues in your mouth healthy, while ensuring optimal maintenance of the functionality of the teeth.
Here is an overview of the family dentistry care offered by your general dentists at Centre Dentaire Anjou.
Dental check-ups :Regular dental check-ups are the key to good oral health. This is why it is generally recommended to have a dental exam every 6 months. In most cases, this is done after professional cleaning by another member of our team: the dental hygienist.
Preventive care :Some care is aimed at preventing the development of oral diseases or damage. These include sealant application, popular with children and adolescents to protect molars and premolars against cavities. Your general dentist can also help you manage bruxism (teeth grinding) to prevent its consequences.
Treatment of cavities :general dentists perform fillings to eradicate dental caries and restore affected teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry:To correct cosmetic defects in the teeth, general dentists can offer various cosmetic treatments, including teeth whitening or the design and placement of dental veneers.
Dental restorations :Replacing missing teeth is of primary importance. Your general dentists offers services for the design of various dental restorations like crowns, bridges, dental prostheses and more. If the situation requires it, the restorations will be done in collaboration with our denturologist. No matter the problem, we have the solution for you.
Visit Your Dentist on a Regular Basis
Although they can offer a whole range of care, dentists are primarily consulted in general and family dentistry for preventive purposes. This is the reason why it is recommended to visit your dentist every 6 months for a professional cleaning and a complete examination. It is important to consult, even when there are no abnormal signs or symptoms.
Regular care aims to prevent illnesses and problems that cause unpleasant symptoms. In the event of a problem, they will be able to direct you to the necessary care to preserve the integrity of your smile!
