General dentistry is a broad umbrella term used for most dental procedures and treatments not requiring specialist care. However, many of the treatments considered general dental can be further categorised as:

  • restorative dental services - these procedures and treatments occur when a problem has arisen and needs intervention. Usually, the aim is to save the tooth.
