Why Is It Important to Have a General Dentist?
A general dentist doesn’t specialize in one branch of dentistry. General dentists are primary care providers who perform a wide range of dental services that maintain healthy teeth and gums for people of all ages.
General Dentists: What Do They Do?
General family dentistry centers around long-term care and maintenance. Your general dentist will perform regular exams, professional cleanings and procedures to diagnose and treat common dental diseases and injuries. He or she can also help you optimize your at-home dental hygiene.
General Dentistry Services That Our Dentists Provide
It takes many types of tests, treatments and procedures to keep smiles looking great. Here is a list of our essential general dentistry services.
How Often Should a Healthy Patient Go to the Dentist?
Your age, general and dental health and other factors determine how frequently you should visit a general dental office for a checkup. Most people with good dental health should see a dentist twice a year. If chronic dental conditions or medical problems are present, more frequent visits may be required.
What Is the Price of a Dental Visit?
The overall cost of your visit depends on the specific types of tests and treatments that your dentist performs and the extent of your dental insurance coverage. If you’re worried about the cost of an upcoming visit, contact us to obtain more information about fees and payment methods.
