What is General Dentistry?
City Quay Dental Clinic is known for our superior dental implant treatment and for elevating smile aesthetics through cosmetic dentistry. We also provide general dental services to care for your overall oral health.
General dentistry is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental diseases, conditions, and disorders — essentially any factor that can negatively impact the teeth, gums, jaw, and other oral tissues. Treatments under general dentistry help with the overall maintenance of your oral health and include services such as dental visits, gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, and bridges.

We pride ourselves on the premium patient care experience at our dental clinic. You can expect that you will receive an unmatched level of care leading up to your appointments, throughout your treatments and following your appointments. Providing exceptional patient care is ongoing, and we always strive to exceed your expectations throughout our general dental treatments.
Our dentists will help develop a treatment plan exclusively for you based on your needs and preferences. Based on your dental examination, we design a comprehensive dental care plan to help you achieve optimal oral health.
The Importance of Regular Dental Exams
Dental exams allow us to monitor your oral health and address potential dental issues — these check-ups are a proxy for the state of your teeth and gums. Routine examinations are a significant part of preventative dental care, enabling us to catch and correct minor issues before they compound into more significant dental problems.
Throughout your exam, we assess the quality of your teeth, the state of any previous dental work, determine any areas that may require treatment, and the overall condition of your face, jaw and mouth. Dental exams can include teeth cleaning, scaling, and X-rays.
We recommend that patients visit our practice regularly for a general dental check-up, ideally at a frequency of every six months (or more often if there are factors that necessitate visits at increased intervals).

When to see a Dentist
It would be best if you visited our practice every six months for a general check-up. However, it is crucial to see a dentist if changes are happening before they become more extensive and more costly issues.
Any issues that are not commonly present might be cause for concern, such as mouth sores, tooth pain, gum bleeding, and bad breath. An excellent and consistent relationship with our extraordinary team allows us to track and resolve your oral health issues early.
Implement Proper Oral Hygiene Habits at Home
It is essential to work in conjunction with a dentist. Regular check-ups and habitual oral hygiene are crucial to teeth, gums, and mouth health. The primary dental maintenance is to brush twice daily, floss once daily, and visit our practitioners regularly.
External factors also impact your oral hygiene. Consuming less sugar can help prevent cavities, and cutting out tobacco, wine, tea, and coffee can help prevent stains and other issues.
