How Often Should You See Your Family Dentist?

Is It Costly to Visit a Family Dentist?

Most patients find that routine visits are affordable, but your total cost depends on what types of procedures and tests your dentist needs to perform to keep your mouth healthy. Your insurance plan also impacts your out-of-pocket costs. You can learn more about specific treatment costs and payment options by calling our office.

How Much Time Will the Dental Appointment Take?

Most routine visits can be completed in an hour or less. If your dentist general practice visit involves advanced procedures such as root canals or other restorations, it could take up to several hours. Please call us for more information about estimated treatment times.

Your Appointment Day Preparation Tips

You can help make your dental visit go more smoothly by observing a few basic tips. Be at the office on time, or arrive slightly early if you’re a new patient. Bring your insurance information, identification, medical history and a list of any medicines that you currently take. If you have dental records to transfer, have them sent over before your appointment date. Please let us know if you struggle with anxiety or panic symptoms when seeing a dentist. We’ll do everything possible to make your experience more positive.

What Happens to Your Smile When You Avoid the Dentist?

If you never see your dentist, tooth decay or gum disease may develop silently and go without treatment for long periods of time. Eventually, you’ll experience symptoms, but by this time, your condition may have advanced to a stage that is far more difficult and costly to treat. Seeing your dentist is a tiny investment compared to the heartache of losing your teeth and the cost of dental restorations. Get your dental health back on track by calling us today to schedule your next dental exam.
