General Dentists in East Brunswick

Your smile should remain healthy, bright and pain-free for the duration of your life, but you’ll need a little help to make that happen. Along with good oral hygiene, visiting your general or family dentist is essential to keeping your teeth and gums healthy and your smile brilliant.

Definition of a General Dentist

A general dentist is a dental professional who supplies primary dental care to patients of any age. While some dentists specialize in orthodontics, endodontics or other fields, general dentistry providers perform a wide variety of services that help to maintain the overall health of teeth and gums.

What Role Does a General Dentist Perform?

Dentists who practice general family dentistry typically maintain their patients’ oral health through regular examinations, dental cleanings, treatments to repair dental decay and structural problems of the teeth, management of dental infections, and urgent treatment of dental symptoms that arise suddenly. They also perform procedures to strengthen teeth and counsel patients on how to improve dental hygiene at home.

Essential General Dentistry Services

Our dentists provide a range of general dentistry services to help you and your family enjoy healthy, gorgeous smiles. They include all of the following.

  • Dental Crowns and Bridges
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Dental Implants
  • Dentures
  • Emergency Dental Care and Toothaches
  • Tooth Extraction
  • Treatment For Gingivitis and Gum Disease

Dental Visit Frequency

Most people with good dental health need to visit their dentists about twice every year. Patients with chronic dental problems or other health conditions may need more frequent exams. If your checkup is overdue, contact our general dental office to schedule an appointment.

Will My Dentist Visit Cost a Lot?

Most routine checkups are not expensive, but the overall price of your visit will depend on the types of treatments and tests required to manage your dental health. Your insurance will also affect your cost. To obtain more specific details about cost, contact our office.

How Can I See a General Dentist Near Me?

It’s easy to make an appointment with a skilled dentist in your area. Just call our office, and let us know when your schedule is open. We’ll help you find the perfect dentist to manage your ongoing dental care.

How Long Does an Appointment Usually Last?

A dentist general practice appointment can vary in length. The time you spend with the dentist is based on why you’re seeing the dentist and what needs to be done to restore or maintain your dental health. A routine checkup for an established patient may only last 30 minutes. However, if you need extensive dental work performed, it could take several hours. We may be able to provide an approximate guess when you schedule your appointment.

How to Prepare for Your First Dental Appointment

We want your visit to be a pleasant experience. To help things go smoothly, arrive on time and be sure to bring your insurance information and a list of your current medications. Your dentist will also need details about your medical history. If you feel anxious about seeing a dentist, please let us know so that we can make you feel more at ease.

Avoiding the Dentist: What Happens When You Don’t Get Checkups?

Without routine dental exams, cavities, gum disease and other problems can start to develop without producing any obvious symptoms. Neglecting to obtain treatment for these problems may eventually lead to serious gum disease, infections, structural damage and tooth loss. Seeing your dentist regularly can help prevent pain and embarrassment and the need for expensive and invasive dental procedures later in life. Get your dental health up-to-date by calling our office to schedule an appointment today.
