Frequently Asked Questions

What are general dental services?

A general dentist’s office can include many different services. General dentistry usually includes teeth cleanings, examinations, X-rays, and cavity treatment such as fillings or root canal therapy. 

Preventive services are the root of general dentistry because our goal is to keep you from getting cavities or oral diseases. But if you do, we’ll provide an effective solution that will treat your oral health issue and help guard against future problems.

A general dentist may offer a variety of services, though. Many general dentists offer cosmetic services like teeth whitening, and Invisalign® is becoming an increasingly common service.

What is the most common dental procedure?

The most common dental procedures include:

  • Dental fillings: Most adults have had at least one cavity, making dental fillings incredibly common. The procedure is also very simple and is done in one appointment.
  • Root canal therapy: While root canal therapy has an intimidating reputation, it’s usually not very painful and most patients compare it to receiving a filling. This treatment is the last chance to save a severely infected tooth before a dentist resorts to an extraction.
  • Dental crowns: Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that go over your natural teeth. A crown can protect a weakened tooth and improve its appearance.
  • Extractions: Many people have extractions to remove their wisdom teeth. In cases of infected teeth, Dr. Hatch will try to preserve your natural tooth, but an extraction may be necessary.
  • Teeth whitening: Yellow teeth due to coffee, wine, and soda stains are common. Teeth whitening can easily lift these stains and give you a brighter smile.
Is it worth getting dental insurance?

Yes, dental insurance can greatly ease the financial stress of getting dental work done. Even a regular dental appointment can be costly, which may be a deterrent for coming in for your exams and cleanings. Insurance can make it easier for you to maintain your smile.

Putting off regular appointments due to the cost can end up costing you more in the future. Without regular cleanings and exams, an oral health condition may become severe and require more invasive treatment.
