If you want to enjoy a bright, radiant and pain-free smile for life, maintaining the health of your teeth and gums is essential. With good habits and regular care from your general or family dentist, a radiant smile is a goal that you can easily accomplish for yourself and your family members.

What Is a General Dentist?

A general dentist is a medical professional who acts as a primary dental care provider for patients of all ages. Rather than specializing in one area of dentistry, general dentists provide many different services to maintain dental health by treating and preventing diseases of the teeth and gums.

What Does a General Dentist Do?

The field of general family dentistry focuses on lifelong dental health. To keep your smile at its best, your dentist will perform regular checkups, fill cavities, clean and polish your teeth, advise you on the best ways to brush, floss and use various dental products, and perform any procedures needed to strengthen or repair diseased teeth or gum tissue. When you have tooth pain or other symptoms, your dentist will diagnose the condition, treat the underlying cause and ensure that the problem doesn’t come back.

General dentistry services include many types of exams, procedures and treatments that ensure great dental health for you and your family members of all ages. The following is a list of valuable services that our general dentists provide.

How Often Should You Go to the Dentist?

Your age, dental condition and other factors determine how often you should visit your general dental office. Most dentists advise their healthy patients to schedule a checkup every six months.

How Much Does a Dentist Visit Cost?

The price of a dental visit depends on what type of treatment is needed and whether you have dental insurance. Contact our office to determine how much your initial visit will cost.

How to Make a Dentist Appointment

Have you been wondering, “How do I schedule a visit with a general dentist near me?” Setting up your first appointment is easy. Simply call our office to schedule your visit on a date and time that’s convenient for you.

How Long Does a Dentist Appointment Last?

A dentist general practice appointment can last anywhere from 30 minutes for a quick follow-up to several hours when extensive dental procedures are required. In most cases, a routine visit lasts about an hour. If you’re concerned about the length of a scheduled visit, please call us for more information.

How to Prepare for a Dentist Appointment

Seeing your dentist should be a pleasant experience. To be prepared, arrive on time, have a list of your current medications and medical conditions and be aware of your insurance coverage details. If you feel anxious, let us know. It’s common to be nervous before a dental visit, but we can help to ease your mind.

What Happens When You Don’t Go to the Dentist?

If you don’t get regular checkups, you may not know when tooth decay, gum disease or other dental problems are starting to develop. When they are discovered and treated at their earliest stages, it’s less painful and costs less money to correct these common problems. Seeing your dentist regularly reduces the eventual likelihood of needing expensive and time-consuming treatments to save your teeth or replace them. Contact us today to schedule your exam, and let us help you keep your beautiful, healthy smile for life.
