What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry is the cornerstone of good oral and physical health. It involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of various dental conditions. It also involves the maintenance of patients’ overall oral health. This comprehensive care is usually the only source of care patients require for their dental needs. There are several different dental specialties, but general dentistry encompasses the basics of these specialties. It starts with a visual and radiographic examination of the teeth.
Teeth are strong and durable structures that endure massive amounts of pressure each day. It is important to protect them and keep them strong through daily brushing and flossing. Everyone should get regular professional care from a licensed and experienced general dentist.

Your Melbourne, Florida dentist, Dr. Clark Brown, will work with you to create a customized dental hygiene plan which includes dental examination, tooth cleaning, X-ray, tooth scaling (if needed), and use of other diagnostic equipment to prevent, discover or treat problems as early as possible.
