General Dentists in Longwood

Seeing your general or family dentist is an essential part of maintaining good dental health throughout your life. Through comprehensive oral hygiene habits and a caring dentist on your team, you and your family can enjoy perpetually beautiful, pain-free smiles.

Definition of a General Dentist

A general dentist manages long-term dental health for patients and sometimes their entire families. While some dentists specialize in a specific type of dentistry, general dentists perform a wide variety of tests, procedures and other treatments to keep teeth and gums healthy.

What Tasks Does a General Dentist Perform?

When you visit a general family dentistry provider, you’ll receive a number of tests, treatments and procedures designed to keep your dental health in check. These include comprehensive exams, professional cleanings, treatments to resolve infections, dental fillings and crowns, root canals and other procedures and advice to help you take better care of your teeth at home.

General Dentistry Services for All Patients

Our dentists provide the following general dentistry services to help keep our patients’ smiles healthy and bright.

  • CEREC Crowns
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Sensitive Teeth
  • Softline Dentures

How Often Should I Make a General Dental Office Appointment?

Your age and dental health determine how often you should see your dentist. If your teeth and gums are healthy, most dentists will suggest that you visit twice yearly for a checkup. Patients with chronic or severe dental problems or other health conditions may need more frequent evaluations.

How Much Will I Pay to Visit a Dentist?

The total price of your appointment will depend on your personal dental needs and the extent of your insurance coverage. Contact us to learn more about the expected cost of a pending appointment or other pricing details.

How Can I Obtain Care from a General Dentist Near Me?

If you’re ready to see one of our experienced general dentists, just call our office. We’ll help you find a great dentist in your area and set up a convenient appointment that works with your schedule.

How Much Time Should a Dentist General Practice Visit Take?

A limited checkup may only last 30 minutes. Most routine visits can be completed in an hour or less. If you need extensive dental work or tests performed, your visit will require more time. To obtain more information about treatment times for specific procedures, contact us directly.

Preparing for Your First Dental Appointment

If you’re seeing a new dentist, there are several ways that you can make the visit go more smoothly. First, arrive on time for your scheduled appointment. Be sure to bring your insurance information and a list of any medications that you’re currently taking. Be sure to let your dentist know about any chronic health conditions that you may have. Finally, let us know if you feel anxious or suffer from severe panic or anxiety when you visit a dentist. We’ll do everything that we can to make your visit more comfortable.

What Are the Consequences of Avoiding the Dentist?

If you don’t see your dentist for regular checkups, newly developing gum disease and tooth decay can go unchecked. By the time symptoms are obvious, these conditions may be at a stage where treatment is more expensive and complicated. Seeing your dentist on a regular basis ensures that developing problems are treated early. This will reduce your risk of future tooth loss and serious dental disease. Contact our office today to put your dental health on the right track and preserve your healthy, radiant smile for life.
