General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry includes a broad range of treatments, including preventive services and the management of conditions that affect your oral health. Your general dentist is usually the first person to spot potential problems that have to do with your teeth, gums, mouth, and even your throat and jaw.

With biannual dental cleanings and exams, Dr. Hsu can track your oral health and resolve issues before they become major health complications. That includes treating cavities, monitoring your gum health, taking X-rays of your teeth, and more.

What are common general dentistry services?

As a general dentist, Dr. Hsu is specially trained to provide a variety of services and, if necessary, to collaborate on your behalf with other dental specialists.

While routine teeth cleanings constitute a large part of a general dentist’s work, there are many other procedures Dr. Hsu can offer you and your family, including:

  • Cavity fillings and sealants
  • Oral X-rays
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Tooth extraction
  • Implants, crowns, and bridges
  • Gum disease diagnosis and treatment
  • Root canal therapy
  • Dentures
  • TMJ treatment

Dr. Hsu also offers some orthodontic and cosmetic procedures, such as Invisalign, teeth whitening, veneers, or bonding.

What are the benefits of regular dental care?

Regular dental visits are essential for several reasons. At Crystal Lake Dental, your care is designed to offer the best possible benefits, including:

Disease prevention

While good brushing and flossing habits are paramount to oral health, plaque still naturally builds on and in between the teeth. The only way to remove this film ― which can eat away at your teeth, causing cavities and decay ― is to have regular dental cleanings.

General dentistry also ensures the prevention of gum disease, which can cause inflammation in the gums and eventually lead to tooth loss.

Advanced Technology

Dr. Hsu offers the most advanced and sophisticated technology at Crystal Lake Dental, which guarantees your dental care is the most effective it can be.

Beautiful Teeth

Clean teeth are beautiful teeth, especially when Dr. Hsu can complement your dental care with cosmetic treatments or orthodontics. With regular dental visits, you can be confident that your smile is bright and healthy.
