Dental care is the maintenance of healthy teeth and may refer to:
- Oral hygiene, the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean in order to prevent dental disorders
- Dentistry, the professional care of teeth, including professional oral hygiene and dental surgery
- Oral Surgery, any of a number of medical procedures that involve artificially modifying dentition; in other words, surgery of the teeth and jaw bones
A general dentist is your primary care dental provider. This dentist diagnoses, treats, and manages your overall oral health care needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.
