Why Dental Visits Are Necessary

Proper care of your teeth and gums can have a positive impact on your well-being. With regular dental visits, you’ll experience a clean, pain-free smile that can increase your self-confidence.

Call us today to schedule an initial appointment at our general family dentistry practice.

What Do General Dentists Typically Do?

Serving as your primary dental care provider, a general dentist is the person you visit most for your dental needs. When you visit the dentist, you’ll receive biannual examinations, cleanings, and other treatments as needed. If you’re suffering from a toothache or suspect another issue, you can visit your regular dentist for pain relief and treatment.

  • Bad Breath Treatment

How Often Should I Go to the Dentist?

A common question we receive from our patients is, “How often should I visit a general dentist near me?” If you require extensive dental work, several follow-up visits may be necessary to relieve your symptoms. However, most healthy patients will only need to visit a general dental office every six months.

How Much Should a Dental Visit Cost?

The cost of a dentist appointment depends on your insurance coverage and which treatments are needed. Please call our office if you have questions about pricing, insurance, or your payment options.

How Does a Dentist Keep Teeth Clean?

Dental cleanings are an important part of your regular checkups. Using a variety of ultrasonic and manual tools, your dentist or dental hygienist will remove traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth and gum line. While brushing and flossing at home are important, only a professional cleaning can reach all areas of your mouth. Keep your smile fresh by visiting our office for regular cleanings.

How Long Will My Dental Appointment Last?

The length of a dental appointment will depend on what general dentistry services are necessary. Typically, routine appointments last approximately 30-60 minutes, but a visit for extensive dental work can last for several hours. Please call us if you are concerned about the duration of a scheduled visit.

Preparing to See a General Dentist

Getting organized before your dentist general practice appointment can ensure a stress-free visit. It’s helpful to gather information about your medical history and insurance beforehand, as this can assist you when filling out paperwork. If you have any questions about preparing for your appointment, please call our office.
