An experienced Newmarket dentist should offer a wide variety of dentistry, from general cleaning to cosmetic, dental implants and orthodontic. Knowing and deciding what your teeth and oral hygiene require is a different matter though. Many general dentist may be skilled to perform the basic needed procedures for your teeth but may then recommend you to a specialist for something they are not trained to do. Knowing the role and procedures associated with these specialists can make your dental experience a more informed and knowledgeable one.
General Dentistry is your local family dentist. Newmarket dentists treat patients of all ages and their main goal is to provide services related to the oral hygiene of the gums and teeth. Routine check ups at your dentist greatly benefits your oral health. General dentists work to correct problems, fill cavities, clean the teeth, and also inspect the growth of adult and baby teeth to foresee any problems.
Cosmetic dentistry is a form of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of people’s teeth and smiles. While general dentists focus is to prevent with necessary treatment, Cosmetic dentistry provides desired treatments. Cosmetic Dentistry provides inlays/onlays (porcelain fillings), composite bonding, teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental implants, smile makeover, and full mouth reconstruction.
Orthodontics is a form of dentistry that focuses on realigning the teeth and correcting overbites and small jaws. By repositioning the teeth and the underlying root, the teeth can be corrected. While Orthodontic dentistry can be a little more expensive, the impact of having straight teeth can make a drastic difference in your oral health. Orthodontics reduces the chances of cavities, gum disease, bone destruction, chewing and digestive issues, speech impairments etc.
Implants/dentures are an important aspect of dentistry that can be categorized as prosthetic and cosmetic dentistry. Implants are artificial tooth roots used to support and restore the teeth. This also helps to prevent loss of bone in the jaw. Dentures are used to replace missing teeth, it is an appliance that helps to bit and chew properly, keep the remaining teeth straight, and uphold the facial appearance.
Sedation Dentistry: Newmarket dentists who offer sedation for procedures should be specifically trained in sedation. If you are anxious or nervous when you visit the dentist, you might consider going to a dentist qualified to offer sedation dentistry. Sedation (using a sedative to calm and relax) often works very well for those who are very apprehensive about dental procedures. Though there are many forms of dentistry, some Newmarket Dentists offer all your dental needs.
