General Dentists in New Baltimore

Practicing good oral hygiene habits is essential to your wellbeing. With healthy oral hygiene at home and regular visits to a general dentist in New Baltimore, you can enjoy a stunning, pain-free smile no matter what your age.

What Should I Know About a General Dentist?

Often referred to as a family dentist, a general dentist is responsible for the diagnosis and management of oral health issues in adults and children. General dentists work to ensure patients’ oral health throughout their lives, providing routine checkups and cleanings. They provide comprehensive care instead of specializing in one branch of dentistry.

What Services Does a Family Dentist Offer?

General dentists focus on ensuring patients’ lifelong dental health. Your general dentist’s office is where you’ll visit for routine checkups, cleanings, and oral cancer screenings. General dentists also provide treatments like tooth fillings, crowns, and other procedures that can preserve your natural teeth.

General Dentistry Services

Many routine procedures and treatments are considered general dentistry services. Let us help you attain a healthy smile – call us today to book the following services.

  • Bad Breath Treatment
  • Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Dental Sealants
  • Dentures
  • Fillings and Restorations

How Often Should I Visit a Dentist?

One of the most frequent questions we receive is, “How often should I visit a general dentist near me?” While the answer will depend on your unique dental situation, most healthy people need to see a dentist approximately every six months.

How Much Will a Dental Appointment Cost?

Your total charges will depend on the services provided and whether you have dental insurance. Please call us if you have questions about the cost of an initial dental visit.

Why Is It Important to Maintain Proper Dental Health?

Dental health is vital to overall wellness. Not only is visiting a dentist regularly good for your teeth, it’s also good for your body. Treating tooth decay and gum disease can reduce chronic inflammation in the body, which is associated with diabetes and heart disease. Let us help you attain a healthy grin – call us today to book an appointment.

How Long Do Dental Cleanings Last?

People who are committed to thorough brushing and flossing at home may only require a brief 30-minute cleaning. If it has been some time since your last visit to a dentist general practice, it may take longer for your dentist or dental hygienist to complete the cleaning.

Preparing for Your Appointment

Seeing your family dentist should be a positive experience. To prepare for your appointment, research the details of your insurance plan and gather information about your prescriptions and health history. If you have questions about your scheduled visit, please call our general dental office for more information.

What Happens When You Don’t Go to the Dentist Often?

When you don’t receive regular cleanings and examinations from a family dentist, your teeth may be affected by severe decay and gum disease. Dental issues in their advanced stages can sometimes be painful and expensive to treat, so detecting problems early is key. With regular trips to our general family dentistry office, you can save time and money while preserving your dental health.
