Why Is a General Dentist Important?
A general dentist doesn’t specialize in specific types of dentistry. Instead, this type of dentist focuses on providing everything you need for excellent, overall dental health. As primary dental care providers, general dentists treat and prevent diseases of the teeth and gums for individual patients and their families.
What Does a General Dentist Actually Do?
A general family dentistry practitioner keeps your teeth and gums healthy by providing routine check-ups, professional cleanings and treatments that strengthen teeth. He or she also fills cavities and performs various procedures to resolve common dental health problems like inflamed gums, toothaches or chipped teeth. Your family dentist manages chronic conditions and treats acute pain or dental injuries by addressing the underlying problems.
Available General Dentistry Services
Our experienced dentists provide many general dentistry services to help keep your teeth and gums in top condition. Here is a list of the specific services that we offer.
How Often Should You Schedule Dental Visits?
Most patients with good dental health should schedule a general dental office visit twice every year. Patients with acute dental problems, chronic health conditions or special dental needs may need to see their dentists more often.
Your Dental Visit Cost
How much your dental visit costs depends on what kinds of tests and treatments are needed to correct your dental problems. Your insurance coverage also impacts your out-of-pocket cost. If you’re not sure what will occur during an upcoming appointment, contact us for more information about your estimated costs.
Is It Difficult to Visit a General Dentist Near Me?
If you’re ready to optimize your dental health, it’s easy to find a great dentist in your area. Simply call our dental office to schedule your appointment for a time and date that fits your schedule.
How Long Does the Dental Appointment Usually Last?
A routine visit to a dentist general practice usually lasts less than an hour. If you’re seeing your dentist to obtain treatment for an acute or chronic problem, the length of your visit may vary from an hour to several hours. If you’re concerned about a scheduling conflict, please contact us so that we can provide more details about your appointment.
How to Prepare for Your Initial Appointment
If it’s your first appointment with us, please arrive on time and bring your insurance information, medical history and a list of your current medications and supplements. If you feel nervous or anxious about your visit, let us know. We’ll do everything possible to make your experience easier.
What Happens If You Don’t See Your Dentist Regularly?
When tooth decay and gum disease first start, you may not have any obvious symptoms. If you don’t see a dentist, your condition could remain undetected and without proper treatment for a long time. Treating dental problems at later stages is more involved and expensive. If you maintain regular checkups, you could save hundreds or thousands in dental care expenses over time. You can also avoid unnecessary pain, suffering and embarrassment. Keep your smile at its best throughout your life.
