General Dentists in Downtown Detroit

Having an attractive, strong, and healthy smile is simply a matter of proper maintenance. You need to take care of your teeth and gums on a regular basis and develop healthy habits, but there is only so much you can do on your own. You also need to have an expert treat any dental problems and help you maintain good dental health.

What Are General Dentists?

A general dentist is a medical professional that has been trained in the general field of dentistry, rather than specializing in one area. A dentist ensures that patients of all ages enjoy proper dental health though the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of dental diseases.

Why Do You Need a General Dentist?

Anyone that wants to have healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime needs to see a general dentist on a regular basis. Dentists perform a wide range of dental services, such as regular examinations, professional cleanings, cavity treatment, and procedures required to repair dental problems. Dentists have the expertise needed to diagnose dental concerns and provide the treatment needed for fast relief and dental health maintenance.

What Kind of General Dentistry Services Are Available?

There is a wide range of services offered by general dental practices for every patient age and dental need. At our full-service dental practice, we offer all of the following general dentistry services.

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

When Should You Go to the Dentist?

Most patients need to visit the dentist every six months. More accurately, how often you go will be based on your dental health, age, and other personal factors. You will be advised how often you need treatment.

What Is the Cost for a Dental Visit?

The cost of going to a dentist general practice will depend on your particular dental needs and any dental insurance you have. Please call our general family dentistry for a cost estimate for your initial visit.

How Do I Schedule a Dental Appointment Near Me?

You’re probably asking, “How do I find a general dentist near me?” All you need to do is call our general dental office and let us schedule an appointment for you. Tell us which date and time are most convenient for you and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Does a Dental Appointment Take a Long Time?

While most dental appointments last for around an hour, an appointment can range from 30 minutes for a routine follow-up to many hours for complex dental treatment. If time is an issue for you, call our practice and let us know so we can meet your scheduling needs.

What Should You Do to Get Ready for a Dentist Appointment?

There’s little you need to do to prepare to see a dentist. Simply arrive on time for your appointment, have a list of your medical conditions, and bring your insurance information. There is no need to be worried because seeing one of our professional dentists should be a comfortable experience. If you have any concerns, let us know and we can help soothe your nerves.

Is It Bad to Avoid Visiting a Dentist?

You are putting yourself at risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and even bigger dental problems if you don’t see a dentist regularly. Even if you aren’t experiencing any dental problems or pain, you need to visit a dentist twice a year so any dental issues can be detected and treated at an early stage to avoid more costly problems later. Call our office for an appointment today to enjoy a healthy smile.
