Determining the different terms in the dental field can be confusing, especially if you are searching for a new dentist in Madera, CA. General, cosmetic, and family dentistry all fall under the umbrella of general dentistry and typically include all of the basic dental care your family needs to stay healthy. 

What Is General Dentistry?

General dentists have one goal: to keep you and your family in good oral health and help you achieve a smile you love. That means your general dentist will provide five types of dentistry:

  • Preventive dentistry (dental exams, cleanings, x-rays)
  • Restorative dentistry (dental fillings, crowns, bonding)
  • Cosmetic dentistry (teeth whitening, veneers, smile makeovers)
  • Emergency dentistry (toothaches, root canals, restorations)
  • Tooth-replacement dentistry (dental implants, partial dentures, bridges, full dentures)

Family dentistry includes the treatment of children, which not every general dentist offers. Some general dentists prefer to refer children to pediatric dentists for their dental care. At Keledjian Dental, however, we warmly welcome patients of all ages. If your child needs extensive work or has unique challenges that indicate that a pediatric dentist will be better equipped to work with your little one, we work with some of the top specialists in the area.

Many of our cherished patients find the convenience of having all family members treated in a single location preferable to racing all over town to have dental care for kids and adults alike.
