General Dentistry in Downey by Dr. Mehregan

General Dentistry in DowneyAt Quality Dentist DowneyGeneral Dentistry is the branch of medicine involving the care and prevention of oral health conditions, diseases and disorders. Your Downey Dentist, Dr. Mehregan’s job is to use preventative care and patient education to preclude the need for treatments and instead promote a healthy smile for life. Dr. Mehregan is also responsible for diagnosing conditions that affect the mouth, teeth, gums and jaws, as well as develop the most effective treatment plan with the patient’s best interests in mind.

General Dentistry dentists typically do not focus on any particular specialty, instead opting to provide generalized dental care to patients. In some cases, General Dentistry dentists may refer a patient to a specialty provider for care or treatment that is beyond the scope of general dentistry. However, most General Dentistry dentists are capable of providing complete examinations, cleanings, root canals, restorations, extractions and tooth prosthetics.

General Dentistry is best when patients use it for preventive care, rather than for corrective treatment. By visiting your Downey Dentist, Dr. Mehregan and his team of hygienists and dental technicians twice annually for cleaning and examination, you can avoid decay and identify potential oral health conditions, such as periodontal disease, in their earliest stages.
