Excellent dental health is important no matter what your age. At our general family dentistry practice, our skilled dentists provide a host of valuable services that will keep you smiling.

What Are General Dentists?

Regular trips to a general dentist in Rockefeller Plaza are essential when it comes to achieving a pain-free, radiant smile. Unlike a dentist who specializes in one branch of dentistry, a general dentist offers comprehensive care that addresses a variety of dental problems. This dental professional is usually the person you visit most for dental care.

What Services Do General Dentists Offer?

General dentists are responsible for diagnosing and treating dental health problems, such as toothaches or gingivitis. To detect problems before they worsen, general dentists provide exams, X-rays, and oral cancer screenings. Your general dental office is also where you’ll receive a thorough teeth cleaning from your dentist or dental hygienist.

General Dentistry Services

Our dentist general practice is dedicated to helping you achieve your healthiest smile. Give us a call today to schedule any of the following services:

How Often Should I See a General Dentist Near Me?

The condition of your teeth and your age will determine how frequently you should visit a dentist. Our general dentists recommend that healthy patients visit our office every six months for a checkup and cleaning.

How Much Does a General Dentist Appointment Cost?

Many people have concerns about pricing when receiving general dentistry services. The cost of your initial appointment will depend on which treatments are needed and what your insurance plan covers. Please call us if you have questions regarding your payment options.

Why Is Dental Care Important?

Maintaining your teeth and gums is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. When you practice good oral hygiene at home and see a general dentist regularly, you can help prevent conditions like tooth decay, gum disease, and even medical conditions like chronic inflammation and diabetes. Let us help you achieve better health – call us today to schedule a dental exam.

How Long Does a Dental Cleaning Take?

A cleaning with a dental hygienist or dentist typically takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the cleanliness of your teeth. If it has been some time since your most recent cleaning, your cleaning could take longer.

How to Get Ready for a Dental Visit

Seeing the dentist shouldn’t be a stressful experience. To be prepared for your visit, have copies of your insurance information and current prescriptions available. Give us a call if you have any questions about your upcoming appointment.

What Happens When You Don’t Visit a Dentist?

Visiting a dentist is the best way to prevent serious dental health issues. Without regular exams, you likely won’t know when decay has begun to damage your teeth. General dentists can often reverse tooth decay and gum disease before they become expensive to resolve, saving you time and money. Call us today to book your dental exam.
