General Dentists in Detroit

Visiting a general dentist regularly for an oral exam and cleaning is essential to preserving your teeth and gums. In fact, seeing a dentist regularly can prevent more severe – and expensive – dental issues from occurring in the future.

Why You Should Go to the Dentist

A general dentist in Detroit is your best line of defense against severe gum disease and tooth decay. Without regular dental visits, you may not know when gingivitis or cavities are damaging your oral health. Fortunately, many dental problems are reversible when treated in a timely manner. If you’re ready to achieve your best smile, call our general dental office today to make an appointment.

What Can a General Dentist Do for Me and My Family?

General dentists provide a full scope of dental services instead of focusing on a particular branch of dentistry. As your primary dental care provider, a general dentist administers regular dental exams, cleanings, and routine procedures like tooth fillings. Our skilled general dentists work diligently to treat dental health problems before they cause severe damage. To learn more about our services and to make an appointment, give our dentist general practice a call.

How Often Should I Go to the Dentist for Cleanings?

One question we often receive from our patients is, “How often should I visit a general dentist near me?” The answer will be different for every person, but most healthy patients are advised to see a general dentist every six months. Those with complicated dental health problems will likely need to visit the dentist more often.

How Much Does a Dentist Visit Cost at Your Office?

Many patients have questions about cost when receiving dental care. The price of a dental visit will depend on the treatments administered and your insurance coverage. Please give us a call if you have questions about insurance or your payment options.

How a Dentist Keeps Your Teeth Clean

While brushing and flossing at home is an essential part of oral hygiene, they are no replacement for a professional dental cleaning. When a dentist or dental hygienist cleans your teeth, he or she will use a variety of instruments to clean hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Regular cleanings can prevent harmful plaque and tartar from damaging your teeth and gums.

How Long Do Dental Visits Normally Last?

Routine general dentistry services, including checkups and cleanings, are typically completed within 30-60 minutes. However, extensive dental work can take several hours to complete. Give us a call if you have questions about the length of your dental visit.

How to Prepare for Your Dentist Appointment at Our Dental Practice

Being prepared for your appointment is a good way to alleviate dental anxiety. To make the paperwork process easier, have information about your current prescriptions, medical history, and insurance available. If you’re nervous upon arriving at our office, please let us know. Our staff members can often help relieve your anxiety.
