Your smile is meant to last, and its longevity depends on freedom from cavities, gum disease and other dental problems. To keep your dental health in top shape, you’ll need good hygiene habits at home and regular professional dental care. Your family dentist is a key player in helping you and your entire family enjoy healthy smiles throughout your lives.
A general dentist is a dental professional who provides primary care for patients of any age. Instead of specializing in one type of dentistry, general dentists treat a wide range of diseases and conditions that affect the teeth and gums. They also provide preventative care to ensure optimal dental health for their patients.
In general family dentistry, lifelong dental health is the ultimate goal. General dentists keep smiles at their best by performing routine checkups, filling cavities, cleaning and polishing teeth and offering advice about home care. They also treat tooth decay, gum disease and any other problems affecting your dental health. If you have tooth pain or other symptoms, your dentist will provide pain relief, determine and repair the cause of the problem and prevent it from coming back.
General dentistry services include a wide range of tests and procedures that help maintain optimal dental health. The following are valuable dental services that our general dentists use to keep our patients’ smiles looking and feeling great.
Your dental health, age and other factors help to determine how often you should visit your general dental office. For most healthy patients, visiting twice per year is sufficient. Call our office to schedule your next appointment.
Your overall cost will depend on what types of tests and treatments your dentist performs and your dental insurance coverage. Please contact us for more specific information about your upcoming appointment cost.
It only takes a few minutes to set an appointment with a dentist. Simply contact our office to schedule your initial appointment at a time and date that works well with your schedule.
Your appointment length at our dentist general practice depends on what type of visit is required. A quick checkup or follow-up may take only 30 minutes while a visit that includes extensive dental treatment may take several hours. A general visit usually takes about one hour. When we schedule your appointment, we can provide more details.
We want your visit to go as smoothly as possible, so here are a few tips to help you get ready. Arrive on time, bring a list of your current medicines and your insurance card and know your medical history details. If you feel nervous about your appointment, let us know so that we can help to make you feel more comfortable.
Dental problems don’t always have obvious symptoms at first. When you don’t see a dentist regularly, you won’t know when tooth decay, gum disease and other insidious problems begin. Detecting and treating these conditions early can prevent them from becoming painful or leading to severe consequences like serious infections or tooth loss. Over time, seeing your dentist regularly will save you money by preventing the need for invasive dental procedures and expensive restorations. Call us today to schedule your checkup, and meet an experienced, caring dentist who’ll help you keep a beautiful, pain-free smile for life.
