General Dentistry Harare

General dentistry is defined as the diagnosis and treatment of all types of anterior and posterior teeth. General dentistry is a broad field which covers all aspects of oral health care such as treatments, prevention, diagnosing and educating patients.

What Does General Dentistry Involve?

General dentistry is the practice of dental care on teeth, gums and other oral tissues. When people think of a dentist, they may envision someone who works on teeth, but a general dentist also handles medical conditions of the mouth.

A person with a regular dental appointment visits the general dentist for a checkup, cleaning and preventive services. In addition to treating tooth decay and gum disease, a general dentist can diagnose and treat problems related to the jaw, upper airway and face.

Dentists who specialize in general dentistry are educated to provide comprehensive care for patients of all ages. They are trained in preventative and restorative dentistry as well as the diagnosis and treatment of many common oral health problems.
