Is It Better to Have a General Dentist or a Few Specialists?


Posted on 10/20/2016 by Crestview Front Desk
A patient talking with her dentist about seeing a specialist.General dentists are akin to a jack of all trades. They are able to help with numerous issues that could go on in your mouth, but they are not specialized in any specific area of dentistry. More often than not, going to a general dentist is the best route because then you are not having to go to a bunch of different offices depending on what is wrong with your mouth or your teeth, but that is not always the case.

When Turning to a Dental Specialist is The Best Option


If the only thing ever wrong with your mouth is the occasional filling, then a general dentist is your best bet. However, if you have signs of gum disease, have a lot of missing teeth and need bridges or dentures, or if you want to get a set of dental implants, then you should opt to go to a dental specialist that can cater to your specific needs.

There are specializations for a reason, and those dental specialists have far more training in the areas they specialize in. Plus, they are also going to have much more experience helping others who need the same type of care that you do.

The best combination of dentists for most people is having a general dentist that works with a few specialists. That way, you can get the care you need, no matter what comes up with your mouth.

If you have not gone in to see the dentist in the last six months, it is time to call your dentist and go in for a checkup as soon as they are able to schedule you in. So please contact us today and see how soon we can take a look over your mouth.
