Introduction to General Dentistry

General dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the overall oral health care of patients. It encompasses a wide range of dental treatments and procedures aimed at preventing, diagnosing, and treating various dental issues. General dentists are the primary providers of dental care for individuals of all ages, offering comprehensive services to maintain and improve oral health.

Importance of General Dentistry

General dentistry plays a vital role in promoting and preserving oral health. Here are some key reasons why general dentistry is essential:

Preventive Care: General dentistry emphasizes preventive care to keep dental issues at bay. Regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and oral examinations help detect early signs of dental problems, allowing for prompt intervention and treatment. By practicing preventive dentistry, potential dental issues can be addressed before they become more significant and costly to treat.

Early Detection of Dental Problems: General dentists are trained to identify early signs of dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. Through routine examinations and diagnostic tools like X-rays, they can detect these issues in their early stages when they are easier to treat. Early detection can prevent further damage, reduce the need for extensive treatments, and save patients from unnecessary discomfort and expenses.

Comprehensive Dental Treatments: Wide range of dental treatments and procedures to address various oral health needs. From dental fillings and root canal therapy to tooth extractions and dental crowns, general dentistry covers a broad spectrum of treatments to restore and maintain oral health.

Patient Education: Education about proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing techniques, flossing methods, and the importance of a healthy diet. They also offer guidance on habits that can negatively impact oral health, such as smoking or excessive consumption of sugary foods and beverages. Patient education empowers individuals to take control of their oral health and make informed decisions for their overall well-being.

Family Dentistry: General dentistry often includes family dentistry, which means that dental care is provided to patients of all ages, from children to adults. This convenience allows families to receive comprehensive dental care in one location, making it easier to schedule appointments and ensure the oral health of the entire family.

Collaboration with Specialists: Work closely with dental specialists, such as orthodontists, periodontists, and oral surgeons, to provide coordinated and comprehensive care. They can refer patients to specialists when specialized treatments or procedures are required, ensuring that patients receive the most appropriate and effective care for their specific needs.


It’s virtually impossible to list all of them on this page. If you have any questions regarding your dental coverage, we will be happy to answer them.

Services Offered in General Dentistry

At Dr.Edward Doktorman in Clifton, NJ, we offer a comprehensive range of general dentistry services to address all your oral health needs. Our experienced team of dentists and dental professionals are dedicated to providing high-quality care in a comfortable and friendly environment. Here are some of the services we offer in general dentistry:

Dental Cleanings and Examinations: Regular dental cleanings and examinations are the foundation of maintaining optimal oral health. Our skilled hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar buildup, and our dentists will conduct a comprehensive examination to check for any signs of dental problems or abnormalities.

Dental Fillings: If you have a cavity or tooth decay, we offer dental fillings to restore the affected tooth. We use tooth-colored composite fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits.

Tooth Extractions: In cases where a tooth is severely damaged or cannot be saved, our dentists may recommend a tooth extraction. We perform extractions with precision and care, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure.

Root Canal Therapy: When the inner pulp of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, root canal therapy can save the tooth from extraction. Our skilled endodontists perform root canal procedures to remove the infected pulp, clean the root canals, and seal the tooth to prevent further infection.

Gum Disease Treatment: Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can lead to serious oral health issues if left untreated. We offer various treatments for gum disease, including scaling and root planing, to remove plaque and bacteria from the gum pockets and promote gum tissue healing.

Dental Crowns and Bridges: Dental crowns are used to restore and strengthen damaged or weakened teeth. They are custom-made to match the shape and color of your natural teeth, providing both aesthetic appeal and functional support. Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.

Dentures: If you have multiple missing teeth, we offer dentures as a removable tooth replacement option. Our dentists will create custom dentures that fit comfortably and restore your ability to chew and speak properly.

Oral Cancer Screenings: Regular oral cancer screenings are an essential part of general dentistry. Our dentists perform thorough examinations of your oral tissues to detect any signs of oral cancer early, increasing the chances of successful treatment.

TMJ/TMD Treatment: If you suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, we offer various treatment options to alleviate pain and discomfort, including oral appliances, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications.

Restorative Dentistry in General Dentistry

Restorative dentistry plays a crucial role in repairing and restoring the functionality and aesthetics of your teeth. At Dr.Edward Doktorman in Clifton, NJ, we offer a comprehensive range of restorative dental treatments to address various dental issues. Here are some of the restorative dentistry services we provide:

Dental Fillings: Dental fillings are commonly used to treat cavities caused by tooth decay. We use tooth-colored composite fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.

Dental Crowns: Dental crowns, also known as caps, are used to restore and strengthen severely damaged or weakened teeth. They are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing both functional support and an improved appearance.

Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are an effective solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) supported by dental crowns placed on adjacent teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges restore your ability to bite and chew properly while maintaining the alignment of your remaining teeth.

Dental Implants: Dental implants are a permanent and natural-looking solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. Dental crowns or bridges are then attached to the implants, providing a stable and durable tooth replacement option.

Dentures: Dentures are removable appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. We offer both complete dentures for patients missing all their teeth and partial dentures for those missing some teeth. Dentures are customized to fit comfortably and restore your ability to speak and eat with ease.

Root Canal Therapy: Root canal therapy is performed to save a tooth that is severely infected or decayed. During the procedure, the infected pulp is removed from the tooth’s interior, and the canal is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. A dental crown is often placed over the treated tooth for added protection and strength.

Cosmetic Dentistry in General Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the aesthetics of your smile, giving you the confidence to show off your pearly whites. At Dr.Edward Doktorman in Clifton, NJ, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments as part of our comprehensive general dentistry services. Our skilled and experienced dental team is committed to providing personalized care and helping you achieve the smile of your dreams. Let’s explore some of the cosmetic treatments we offer:

Teeth Whitening: Over time, our teeth can become stained or discolored due to factors such as aging, certain foods and beverages, tobacco use, or poor oral hygiene. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment that can dramatically brighten your smile. We offer professional teeth whitening options, including in-office whitening treatments and take-home whitening kits. Our whitening solutions are safe, effective, and can give you a dazzling smile that boosts your self-confidence.

Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, uneven spacing, or misshapen teeth. Made from high-quality porcelain or composite resin, veneers provide natural-looking results and can transform your smile into a flawless masterpiece.

Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is a simple and cost-effective cosmetic treatment that involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth. This material is sculpted and bonded to the teeth to repair chips, cracks, discoloration, or gaps between teeth. Dental bonding can also be used to reshape or lengthen teeth, giving you a more harmonious and balanced smile. The procedure is usually quick, painless, and can be completed in just one visit to our dental office.

Invisalign: If you have crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, Invisalign can help you achieve a straighter and more attractive smile. Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth into their desired positions. The aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign offers a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces, allowing you to achieve a beautifully aligned smile without the hassle of metal brackets and wires.

Pediatric Dentistry:

Pediatric dentistry focuses on providing specialized dental care for infants, children, and adolescents. It is essential to prioritize oral health from a young age to ensure proper dental development and maintain a healthy smile throughout life. Our dentists are specially trained to address the unique dental needs of children and create a positive and comfortable dental experience for young patients.

Children’s Dental Exams: Regular dental exams for children are crucial for monitoring their oral health and detecting any potential issues early on. Our specialists will evaluate the oral health of your child and provide comprehensive solutions for optimal oral health.

Comprehensive Evaluation: Evaluations work through thorough examination of a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth. The dentists will assess the development of primary (baby) teeth and permanent teeth, looking for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other dental problems.

Children X-rays and Diagnostic Imaging: X-rays may be taken to assess the underlying structures and identify any hidden dental concerns, such as cavities or dental abnormalities. Low-radiation digital x-rays, ensuring minimal exposure and safety for children.

Children Dental Cleaning: Dental cleanings are an essential part of children’s dental exams. The dentist or dental hygienist will carefully clean and polish the teeth, removing plaque, tartar, and stains. This process helps prevent tooth decay and maintains optimal oral hygiene.

Children Oral Health Education: We strive to educate children and parents about proper oral hygiene techniques, including brushing, flossing, and a balanced diet. We also provide guidance on age-appropriate oral care practices and answer any questions or concerns.

Children Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride is often applied to children’s teeth during dental exams. Fluoride treatments help strengthen the enamel, making the teeth more resistant to decay. Pediatric dentists determine the appropriate fluoride treatment based on a child’s age and risk of dental caries.

The Doctor and staff are excellent! You couldn’t ask for a better team. I’ve had a lot of issues with dentists over the recent years because I require my gums to be numb for any kind of work done to my teeth and most dentists didn’t want to or said I didn’t need it and then got mad when they couldn’t work on me. Searched and found Dr. Doktorman had some good reviews and I gave him a try. Now my go to dentist here on out. Staff is just as great as well. All are friendly, funny at times, and on point.

Dr. Doktorman is friendly and patient. I never have to wait long for an appointment.However, I’ve had this experience on different two different occasions. The doctor injects novacaine before working on a cavity. He has me wait but by the time he comes back and starts drilling it feels like the Novocaine has worn off. He gives me more when I’m in pain. But still I’m trying to have the minimal amount of pain when I go to the dentist and want to be as numb as possible for the whole procedure. This is one reason that I wound up switching to a different doctor.

I am looking forward to my next visit to my oral surgeon in Clifton. That is when I am receiving my dental implants. I found him to be very pleasant to deal with and do not mind going to the dentist at all now. After my next visit I will have a full set of perfect teeth, which I have not had for a long time.

When we were searching for a new family dentistry in Clifton, Dr. Edward Doktorman was highly recommended to us by a couple of people. My wife and my son went to see him first for a checkup and then it was my turn. I required two dental implants that were done without any discomfort. His chair side manner is very comforting. I was a bigger coward than my wife and son but I actually enjoy my visits now.
