General Dentists in Florida in Florida, FL

Regardless of your age, your smile is an important part of your life. Having a bright and healthy smile without pain or decay is a goal that you can reach with good oral hygiene and regular visits to your general or family dentist.

Your General Dentist: An Important Ally

Unlike a specialist, a general dentist is a primary dental care provider who focuses on overall dental health. Many general dentists provide dental care for entire families over the course of many years. Your dentist serves as your first line of defense against diseases of your teeth and gums.

What a General Dentist Does

General family dentistry is centered around the prevention, detection and treatment of conditions affecting your dental health. Your family dentist will provide everything you need to stay healthy including regular exams and cleanings, fillings, crowns, uncomplicated root canals, strengthening treatments, emergency repairs and home care advice. Whenever a minor problem with your teeth develops, your dentist is there to make sure that it doesn’t progress or cause permanent damage.

How Often Will I Need to Schedule a Dental Exam?

In most cases, two visits per year to your general dental office will be sufficient for keeping your teeth in great shape. However, if you have persistent dental problems or underlying medical conditions that could affect your dental health, your dentist will probably want to see you more often. To ensure the best results, follow your dentist’s recommendations.

How Much Will I Pay to See a General Dentist Near Me?

Your total visit cost will depend on what kinds of dental exams and procedures your dentist performs and what portion of your treatment is covered by your insurance plan. For more specific information about treatment costs, please contact our office.

How Much Time Does a Dentist General Practice Appointment Take?

Simple checkups and follow-up visits usually takes less than one hour. Visits that involve extensive dental procedures or tests can take up to several hours. If you’re worried about allotting enough time for your appointment, call us for advice.

Dental Appointment Preparation

We want your visit to go smoothly. You can help by arriving on time and having essential information on hand, including your insurance plan details, your medical history and a list of any medications and supplements you’re currently taking. If you feel nervous before or during your appointment, don’t be embarrassed. Let us know about your anxiety so that we can try to make you feel more at ease.

How Does Avoiding the Dentist Affect Your Dental Health?

Not getting regular dental care can have devastating effects on your overall dental health. Without routine exams, you won’t know when gum disease or dental decay begins to develop; early stages often present no symptoms. If left untreated, these problems can progress to stages that are more painful and more expensive to resolve. In some cases, tooth loss may occur, making costly restorations necessary. Save your smile and your future finances by seeing your dentist on a regular basis.

We’re ready to help you achieve your dental goals. To schedule an appointment with one of our skilled general dentists today, contact our office.
