When to see a general dentist
Often, people visit the dentist only when they are experiencing oral health issues, which is wrong. It is recommended that you see a dentist every six months as most oral health problems can be detected early enough, saving you money and discomfort down the line. However, this does not mean that you should not see a general dentist in Watseka between the six months whenever a concern over your oral health arises. The state of your oral health in some instances reflects your general health status, with some dental problems indicating that there are issues with other parts of your body. For instance, shaky and chipped teeth can indicate lack of calcium in the body. General dentists are trained to identify such and prescriber appropriate treatments or referrals to specialists if need be.
