At our general dental office, we work hard to create a comfortable dental experience for you and your family. Receive regular care from your general or family dentist and see how easy it is to accomplish your dental health goals.
A general dentist can help you and your family maintain good oral health and avoid serious dental problems. Rather than specializing in one area of dentistry, they are responsible for the prevention and treatment of diseases that affect your teeth and gums.
The treatments and services within the field of general family dentistry are designed to help patients maintain a healthy smile and a lifetime of excellent oral health. Your dentist can develop a customized plan that includes teeth cleanings, dental exams, and simple fillings to treat tooth decay, if necessary. You may also receive detailed instructions on how you can improve your oral hygiene at home, in addition to preventive services and treatments for common dental problems.
The field of general dentistry includes routine exams, cleanings, and many other procedures and treatments to improve your oral health. The following list includes the valuable services you can receive from our general dentists.
Although there isn’t a “right” number of dental visits you should have every year, most dentists suggest that people with good oral health schedule an appointment every six months. If you have periodontal problems, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
Your payment for treatment will vary, depending on your dental insurance and the services received. Contact our office to hear more information about payment options and pricing.
If you’re looking for a new dentist for a professional cleaning, exam, or if you’re experiencing mouth pain, we can help connect you to an experienced dentist. Call our office today to make your appointment.
A cleaning and checkup with a dentist general practice can take about an hour to complete. On the other hand, if you’re only coming in for a follow-up appointment, you can expect to spend about 30 minutes in our office. Certain dental procedures can take longer, even up to several hours, so please contact our office for more information about how long your appointment may take.
To help you feel relaxed and prepared for your next dental appointment, follow these tips. Arrive ahead of time so you can fill out any forms and take a few minutes to relax before your appointment. Please also bring a list of your current medications and existing medical conditions, and be aware of your insurance coverage or other payment method. We also encourage you to write down any questions you might have for the dentist.
An examination by a general dentist is the first step in discovering dental problems like gum disease and cavities before they turn into serious health concerns. Early detection will help you avoid paying for costly dental treatments that are expensive and time consuming to complete. Receiving proper dental care by visiting your dentist regularly can help you avoid all of these problems.
