General Dentistry

General dentistry is a broad term referring to all aspects of dentistry that focus on hygienic and functional treatments, rather than cosmetic services. You may associate general dentistry with annual trips to the dentist as a child for tooth cleanings, x-rays, oral exams, and free tooth brushes, but the scope of general dentistry far exceeds those things; encompassing every aspect of preventative and restorative oral hygiene.

Common General Dental Procedures

Common procedures in general dentistry include nonsurgical visits like:

  • Regular checkups and cleanings
  • X-rays
  • Snoring treatments
  • Dentures
  • Pediatric dentistry

Other general dental procedures that are a little more involved include:

  • Fillings
  • Resurfacing
  • Root canals
  • Dental implants
  • Dental crowns

When choosing a dentist, it is important to search for someone who has been extensively trained and has sufficient experience to provide all services for you and your family. Equally important is finding someone who has received additional training in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry, ensuring cross-over procedures like dental bonding and dental crowns are both structurally sound, and aesthetically pleasing. The dentists at Colonial Dental Group have the training and experience in both disciplines you and your family deserve.

If you live in or around Chicago, Illinois, and are looking for a friendly, professional family dentist to service all of your family's dental needs, please contact Chicago's general dental professionals at Colonial Dental Group for an initial consultation.
