General Dentists in Altamonte Springs in Altamonte Springs, FL

Your gorgeous, healthy smile should stay with you for life. To keep it at its best, practice excellent oral hygiene, protect your teeth from damage and see your general or family dentist on a regular basis.

What Is a Family or General Dentist?

A general dentist provides primary care for your teeth and gums. Instead of specializing in one area of dentistry, a family dentist diagnoses, treats and prevents a wide range of diseases and conditions that affect the teeth and gums of people in all age groups. Some general dentists treat several generations of patients within the same family.

What Do General Dentists Do?

General family dentistry focuses on lifelong dental care through disease prevention and careful management of existing conditions. Your general dentist takes care of your dental health by providing regular exams, dental cleanings, fillings, crowns, root canals and other procedures, structural tooth repairs, treatment for infections and injuries and much more. Whether you need advice about your dental hygiene routine or diagnosis of a sudden toothache, your trusted family dentist is there to help.

How Often Does My Dentist Need to Perform an Exam?

If you have existing dental conditions or medical problems that could potentially affect your teeth and gums, your dentist will probably need to see you more often to monitor your dental health for changes.

How Much Money Will I Pay for a Checkup?

Avoiding Your Dentist Is a Bad Idea

Unfortunately, many people don’t keep up with their scheduled dental exams. Because they don’t produce symptoms in their early stages, you could develop gum disease or tooth decay without knowing it. By the time you detect a problem, the condition has become advanced and may require expensive and invasive treatments. In the worst case scenario, you might even lose your teeth. Don’t let neglect rob you of your smile. Contact us today to schedule a visit with a skilled dentist who can keep your teeth and gums healthy for life.
