What Are General Dentists?

General dentists are usually the medical professionals you visit most for oral health services. Your general family dentistry office is also where you’ll receive cleaning services that eliminate plaque and decay.

How Frequently Should I See a Dentist?

Visiting a general family dentist regularly is vital to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Most people need to see a dentist every six months. Yet, those with extensive dental problems may require more appointments.

What Will a Dental Visit Cost?

The cost of an initial visit with a general dentist typically depends on what treatments are provided and your insurance coverage. Please call us if you have questions about pricing or your dental insurance.

Why Is Dental Health Important for Me and My Family?

The health of your teeth and gums is an important part of your overall wellbeing. Without proper dental care, you may experience tooth loss or oral infections. Poor oral health is also associated with several medical conditions, including chronic inflammation and diabetes. It’s never too late to achieve a healthier smile – call us today set up an appointment with a general dentist.

How Long Does a Dental Cleaning Last?

Regular dental cleanings prevent harmful plaque and tartar from damaging your teeth and gums. If you’ve been consistent with your oral hygiene at home, your cleaning may only last for 30 minutes. If it’s been some time since your last dental cleaning, your cleaning may take longer.

Getting Ready to Visit the Dentist

Preparing for a dental appointment is a straightforward process. Before your visit, gather as much information about your health history, prescriptions, and insurance as possible. Please arrive on time, and let our staff members know if you are nervous. We can often help patients feel more relaxed.

What Happens Without Dental Care?

If you wish to enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth, regular dental care is essential. Avoiding the dentist can lead to a host of dental conditions, even serious complications like infections and tooth loss. Fortunately, our dentists can completely resolve most problems while in the early stages of development. Ready to get started? Call us today to schedule an appointment.
