General Dentists in Baltimore

If you want to enjoy the benefits of a healthy, pain-free smile, it’s important to schedule regular visits with a general dentist in Baltimore. In addition to practicing good oral hygiene at home, visiting a dentist can help keep your teeth and gums in great condition.

What Is a General Dentist?

General dentists are medical professionals who serve as the primary oral health provider for patients. Instead of focusing on one area of dental care, general dentists provide a full range of dental health services. These treatments help prevent and alleviate diseases of the gums or teeth.

What Does a General Dentist Do?

The goal of a general dentist is to help patients achieve lifetime dental health. To do this, your dentist will administer oral exams, treat cavities, clean and polish your teeth, and provide information about the proper way to care for your teeth and gums. If you’re experiencing a toothache or other symptoms, your regular dentist can diagnose the problem and provide the proper treatment.

General Dentistry Services

General dentistry services typically include routine oral exams and many other types of treatments that can improve your dental health. Listed below are the dentistry services you’ll find at our dentist general practice:

  • Bad Breath Treatment
  • Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Dental Implants
  • Dental Sealants
  • Dentures
  • Fillings and Restorations
  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Snore Guards
  • TMJ Therapy
  • Tooth Extractions

How Often Should You Go to the Dentist?

Your dental health, age, and a variety of other factors will determine how many dental visits you require. Most patients should visit a dentist for a checkup every six months.

How Much Does a Dental Visit Cost?

The cost of a dental visit usually depends on what kind of treatment is required and whether you have insurance coverage. Call us today to learn more about pricing and our financing options.

How to Make a Dentist Appointment

If you’re wondering, “How can I visit a general dentist near me?”, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s easy to get started. Simply call our general dental office to speak with one of our friendly staff members, and you’ll receive an appointment time that works with your schedule.

How Long Does a Dentist Appointment Last?

Most dental appointments last anywhere from 30 minutes for quick checkups to multiple hours if an extensive procedure is required. Routine visits typically last about an hour. If you have questions regarding the duration of your visit, call our office for more information.

How to Prepare for a Dentist Appointment

Visiting the dentist should be a stress-free experience. If you’re experiencing anxiety, let us know and we’ll do what we can to help you relax. Other techniques to relieve dental anxiety include arriving early at your appointment and having all information about your insurance or medications readily available.

What Happens If You Don’t Go to the Dentist?

Without regular dental checkups, you may not know if gum disease, tooth decay, or other oral health issues are developing. Regular visits to your dentist greatly reduce the chance of needing time-consuming, expensive dental procedures. Give our general family dentistry office a call today to book your exam. It’s the first step in achieving great dental health for life.
