General Dentists in Temple Terrace

Your beautiful smile tells the world that you care about the health of your teeth and gums, but you can’t keep your grin in great condition without a little help. Visiting a great general or family dentist on a regular basis ensures that your dental health is always at its best.

Your General Dentist Makes a Difference

Unlike a dental specialist, your general dentist diagnoses, treats and prevents many different types of common dental conditions and injuries. This dentist usually serves as your primary dental care provider. General dentists treat individual patients of all ages, and they may even treat entire families.

How Your General Dentist Keeps Your Dental Health in Check

General family dentistry focuses on overall dental health. To keep your teeth and gums in great condition, your dentist will perform comprehensive dental exams, clean and polish your teeth, fill your cavities, repair enamel chips, place crowns, perform root canals and other procedures and help you optimize your home dental care routine. When you develop a sudden toothache, your dentist is there to address the underlying problem and relieve your pain.

How Often Do I Need to Visit My Dentist?

Unless your dentist specifies otherwise, you should schedule a visit to your general dental office at least twice a year. If you have serious dental problems or chronic health conditions, you may need to go more often.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a Dental Checkup?

If your dental health is good, a simple checkup or follow-up appointment is usually modestly priced. If your visit involves extensive treatments or complex procedures, check with our office to determine how much your treatment will cost.

How Do I Contact a General Dentist Near Me?

To find a great dentist in your area, simply call our office. We can match you with one of our experienced and caring general dentists, and set up your initial appointment.

How Much Time Will My Appointment Require?

A dentist general practice visit can range from 30 minutes for a brief checkup to several hours for complex dental procedures. To be certain that you’ve set aside enough time for your appointment, check with us before your scheduled appointment date.

Preparation Makes Your Dental Appointment Easier

To make your visit with us easy and trouble-free, please arrive on time, provide your insurance details, your medical history, and a list of current medications. If you suffer from dental anxiety or panic disorder, let our staff know so that we can try to make your visit more comfortable.

The Consequences of Avoiding General Dental Care

Without routine dental exams, you may not notice early signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Left untreated, these conditions often progress until they become more difficult to treat. Severe dental disease leads to tooth loss, and once this occurs, you’ll need costly restoration procedures to maintain your normal appearance. Avoid the consequences of dental neglect. Call us today to schedule your appointment, and keep your smile on the right track.
