General Dentists in Springfield

The best way to achieve a glowing smile is to visit a general dentist in Springfield for regular dental exams. At our general family dentistry practice, our skilled dentists are committed to helping patients of all ages enjoy robust, lifelong dental health. Read on to learn more about our extensive general dentistry services.

Why Should You Visit a Dentist?

Scheduling regular checkups with your dentist is the only way to ensure lasting dental health. Without regular dental exams, it’s sometimes impossible to know if tooth decay or gum disease are developing. These issues can become painful when left untreated, so early diagnosis is key.

What Do General Dentists Do?

Your general dentist is usually the person you visit the most for routine dental care. General dentists offer a variety of services, including cleanings, tooth fillings, X-rays, and other examinations. These procedures can ensure the life of your teeth and the health of your gums. Your regular dentist is also the person who treats common dental issues, including gingivitis and toothaches.

General Dentistry Services at Our Office

Our experienced general dentists provide a host of services that maintain and protect your teeth. The following are the valuable dentistry services you can receive at our office:

  • Bad Breath Treatment
  • Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Dental Reconstruction
  • Dental Sealants
  • Dentures
  • Fillings and Restorations
  • Gingivitis/Gum Disease Treatment
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Tooth Extractions

How Frequently Should I Visit Dentist?

A common question we receive from our patients is, “How often should I see a general dentist near me?” Healthy patients should see a general dentist for a routine checkup every six months. Those with dental conditions that require extensive work may need additional follow-up appointments.

How Much Will My Dental Appointment Cost?

Every patient has a unique dental situation. Therefore, the cost of a dental visit will vary from person to person. Your insurance plan’s coverage and the treatments you require will factor into your total charges. Please give our general dental office a call if you have any questions about pricing.

Why Do Dentists Clean Teeth?

Cleanings are an essential part of overall dental wellness. Having your teeth and gums professionally cleaned by a general dentist removes any plaque or tartar that can’t be removed by daily brushing. Regular cleanings can prevent tooth decay or gum disease from becoming severe. Keep your smile sparkling – schedule your exam and dental cleaning at our dentist general practice today.

How Long Will a Dental Visit Take?

In most cases, a routine checkup or follow-up appointment at the dentist will take approximately 30-60 minutes. If you have extensive dental work scheduled, your appointment may last for several hours. Give us a call if you have concerns regarding your scheduled dental visit.

Getting Ready for Your Dental Appointment

At our practice, we’re committed to providing patients with a compassionate and welcoming environment. However, some patients experience anxiety when coming in for a dental visit. To ease stress, compile a list of your medications and medical conditions, and research the details of your insurance plan. If you have questions about your dental appointment, give our office a call. Our staff members are always happy to help.
