What Is General Dentistry?
General dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the health and function of your teeth and gums. Visiting Dr. Marzban at our Burke, Virginia, office for twice yearly cleanings and thorough examinations is the most basic form of general dentistry, but general dental services do not end there. Included under the umbrella of general dentistry are services such as:
- Snoring treatments
- Sleep Apnea
- Family dentistry
- Pediatric dentistry
- Root canals
- Dental crowns
- Dental implants
We might divide general dentistry into preventive dentistry and restorative dentistry. Preventive dentistry, which includes both home oral hygiene and routine dental checkups, focuses on protecting your teeth from decay and gum disease. Restorative dentistry is used when teeth are damaged or lost and need repair and replacement.
Holistic dentistry focuses on the relationship between your oral health and overall health. It includes treatment of oral health problems as well as treatments for related conditions like sleep apnea and TMJ. We consider this an important part of general dentistry.
The Importance of General Dentistry
Your oral health is directly related to your overall health. Several studies have found a link between common dental diseases and systemic problems including heart disease and complications with pregnancy and birth. An at-home oral hygiene routine is essential for maintaining clean teeth and healthy gums, but alone it is insufficient to full combat all potential dental problems.
Visiting Dr. Marzban twice a year for thorough cleanings helps keep your teeth free of plaque and tartar buildup. In addition, these visits include a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jaw that allow Dr. Marzban to detect and treat common problems before they become serious issues.
When choosing a general dentist, it is important to look at all of the services they offer to ensure the needs of your entire family can be met. Dr. Marzban provides both general and cosmetic dental procedures, enabling her to meet all of your family’s needs, including the elderly. Her training in cosmetic dentistry allows her to approach general dental services with an eye towards artistry, producing exceptionally beautiful and functionally superior results.

General Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry
Dividing general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry doesn’t reflect our practice. When Dr. Marzban performs any dentistry, she always has an eye on the smile. Looking beautiful is one of the essential roles of your smile. If the results don’t look good, then they’re not right.
It’s also important to remember that good oral health is an essential foundation for a beautiful smile. If you request cosmetic dentistry, but have poor oral health we will want to address health concerns as part of the cosmetic procedure. It’s the only way to give truly beautiful results and ensure they last.
