General Dentists in Lakewood Ranch

Healthy teeth and gums are an indicator of good health. Without regular care from a general dentist in Lakewood Ranch, you may become susceptible to a variety of dental health problems, including tooth loss. Fortunately, you can maintain lifetime dental health with exams and cleanings from our general family dentistry practice.

What Role Does a General Dentist Fill?

General dentists serve as primary dental caregivers for patients of all ages. These dental professionals provide a wide range of dentistry services instead of specializing in one field. A general dentist is often the person people visit most frequently for dental exams, cleanings, and routine treatments.

What Services Does a General Dental Office Offer?

There are numerous services that you and your family can receive at our dentist general practice. These general dentistry services include dental exams, routine and deep cleanings, X-rays, restorations, and more. Let us help you achieve a healthy, fabulous smile – give us a call to make an appointment.

How Frequently Should I Go to a Dentist?

Many patients ask us, “How often should I see a general dentist near me?” People with ongoing dental health problems may require several appointments to resolve their symptoms. However, those with healthy teeth and gums should typically see a dentist every six months.

What Will a Dental Visit Cost?

Many people have concerns about cost when visiting the dentist. Your unique dental situation and whether you have dental insurance will determine your total charges.

Why Is Dental Health Care Important to Maintain?

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums can help you achieve overall wellness. Not only does regular dental care prevent cavities and gum disease, it also reduces the risk of other medical conditions that are caused by inflammation. Let us help you care for your smile – call us today to see one of our skilled general dentists.

How Long Does a Tooth Cleaning Last?

Professional tooth cleanings are the best way to prevent harmful gum disease and tooth decay. Most routine cleanings take approximately 30 minutes. However, your time slot may be longer if your teeth and gums need extensive cleaning.

Getting Ready for Your Dental Appointment

Does the thought of visiting the dentist cause you stress? If so, preparing ahead of time may ease your anxiety. Be sure to compile as much medical and insurance information as you can, as this can help when filling out paperwork. Please call us if you have any questions about your upcoming appointment.

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

Tooth decay and gum disease often strike without warning – only regular dental treatment can stop them from becoming severe. Failure to see the dentist can result in costly dental work and even tooth loss. Give your teeth and gums the care they deserve – call us now to set up a dental exam and cleaning.
