To have a healthy and attractive smile, you need to practice proper dental care. This involves daily brushing, flossing, and good dental habits at home. However, at-home dental care is only part of a healthy smile. The other part is professional dental treatment from a general dentist. This combination can help you have a lifetime of good dental health. Since many people have questions about professional treatment, answers to the most common questions about general family dentistry are featured below.
