General Dentists in Northern New Jersey

A healthy, gorgeous smile does wonders for your self-confidence, but keeping your teeth and gums in great shape requires both a commitment to exceptional home care and help from a skilled professional. Your general or family dentist plays a critical role.

The Role of Your General Dentist

A general dentist is a primary care provider who maintains your dental health throughout your life. General family dentistry focuses on the overall health of your teeth and gums rather than any dental specialty.

What Your General Dentist Does

General dentists perform dental examinations at regular intervals to detect and treat problems as soon as they develop. They fill cavities, professionally clean your teeth, help you optimize your home dental care and treat injuries or symptoms that arise suddenly. By addressing your dental health challenges early, your dentist can help you avoid unnecessary suffering and invasive procedures.

  • How Frequently Should You Visit a Dentist?

Patients with good dental health should plan a general dental office visit about twice a year. Those who suffer from chronic dental problems or other medical conditions that affect the teeth or gums may need to see the dentist more frequently.

Dental Visit Costs and Your Insurance

The cost of your dental appointment depends on several factors including the amount of your insurance copayment and the type of care you’ll be receiving during the visit. Contact our office to obtain more information if you’re unsure about your upfront costs.

How Do I Get Help from a Great General Dentist Near Me?

You can see a caring, skilled and experienced dentist in your area by contacting our dental office directly and making an appointment.

How Long Is a Dentist General Practice Appointment?

If you’re only seeing the dentist for a follow-up or quick checkup, you may be finished in about 30 minutes or less than an hour. Extensive dental procedures or other treatments may take longer. To make sure that you allow enough time for your appointment, contact us to verify the nature of your visit.

Preparing for a Dental Visit

We want your visit with us to be positive and comfortable, so if you’re nervous, let us know. You can also be prepared by arriving on time and bringing essential information, including your insurance details, medical history and a list of your current medications.

What Happens If I Don’t Get Dental Care?

Many dental problems start out with few or no symptoms. Early detection allows your dentist to stop these conditions before they become serious. Neglecting to have a dental professional monitor the condition of your teeth and gums can result in unnecessary pain and lots of completely avoidable dental work later in life. Don’t lose your beautiful smile; contact our dental office today to schedule an appointment with a great dentist in your area.
