General Dentists in Lake Katrine

A healthy smile helps you to look and feel your best, but if you don’t take care of your teeth and gums, you could lose your radiant grin and your self-confidence. Good dental hygiene is important, but you’ll also need professional care to maintain your dental health. Your general or family dentist plays a key role in helping you meet your goals.

Why Do I Need a General Dentist?

Your general dentist is your primary resource for dental care. General dentists treat patients of any age. In fact, they often treat entire families throughout their lives. Because a general family dentistry practice isn’t limited to any specialty field, its providers can treat virtually any type of common dental illness or injury.

What Does the General Dentist Do?

General dentists perform a variety of tests, treatments and procedures to maintain dental health and function. These include exams, dental x-rays, professional cleanings, the placement of fillings and crowns, root canals, structural repairs, emergency care and more.

How Often Will My Dentist Want to See Me?

Most dentists suggest that healthy patients schedule a general dental office exam twice each year. If you have underlying health problems or serious dental disease, your dentist may recommend more frequent evaluations.

How Much Will It Cost to Get a Dental Exam?

The price of any dental visit depends on what types of tests and treatments are required to optimize your dental health. You can obtain more information about standard fees and new patient appointments by calling our office.

Is It Difficult to Visit a General Dentist Near Me?

Our experienced general dentists provide services in your area, and it’s easy to schedule an appointment. Contact our office today so that we can match you with a caring and competent dentist who can keep your smile looking great.

How Much Time Will My Dentist General Practice Appointment Take?

If your teeth and gums are healthy, a quick checkup may only take an hour or less. However, if you need a comprehensive exam or treatment for an existing problem, your appointment may last up to several hours.

Appointment Preparation: Helpful Tips

Your dental visit should be a positive experience. Here are several ways you can help ensure that it goes smoothly.

  • Don’t be late for your appointment
  • Provide your insurance details
  • Bring a list of your current medications and medical conditions
  • If you feel nervous, don’t be embarrassed. Dental anxiety is common. Let us know how you’re feeling so that we can provide additional support.

What Happens When You Miss Your Dental Checkups?

Not having regular dental exams leaves your teeth and gums vulnerable and can have serious consequences. Early signs of tooth decay and gum disease may not be noticeable to you, but your dentist can see and treat them while they are still mild. If these conditions go untreated, invasive and costly treatments may be required by the time you realize there’s a problem. In severe cases, you could even lose your teeth. To prevent unnecessary pain and expense, invest wisely in your dental health. Contact us today to schedule your next dental exam with one of our skilled general dentists.
