General Dentists in Center City Philadelphia

Visiting a general dentist regularly is essential to long-term dental health. When you visit a general family dentistry practice regularly, you’ll be on your way to a lifetime of healthy teeth.

What Are General Dentists?

General dentists help maintain the health of your teeth and gums, providing regular dental exams and treatment for common dental problems. Rather than providing just one type of dentistry, a general dentist offers comprehensive care that can help preserve your oral health.

What Can General Dentists Do?

A general dentist’s goal is to help patients of all ages achieve excellent oral health. When you visit our general dental office, you’ll receive a thorough oral exam and any necessary dental treatment, such as a filling or tooth cleaning. You’ll also receive information about the proper way to care for your teeth, including brushing and flossing. General dentists can also treat toothaches and other dental conditions, so give our office a call if you’re experiencing discomfort.

Our office provides comprehensive general dentistry care, including many types of exams and procedures that can improve your oral health. Here are the general dentistry services you’ll find at our modern facility:

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

Most healthy patients require a dental checkup every six months. However, your age, existing oral health conditions, and other factors will determine how often you must visit the dentist.

How Much Do Dental Visits Cost?

Every patient’s needs are different, so the cost of a dental visit will vary from person to person. The type of treatments needed and your insurance coverage will determine your total charges.

How Can I Visit a General Dentist Near Me?

Setting up an initial dental appointment is easy – simply call our office to speak to one of our staff members. We’ll help you find a date and time that fits within your schedule.

How Long Do Dental Appointments Last?

A routine checkup at a dentist general practice typically lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. However, your appointment may last longer if you require extensive oral procedures. Your dentist will offer information about the anticipated appointment length during your visit.

Preparing for a Dental Appointment at Our Practice

Visiting a dentist should be a positive experience. To make sure you’re ready for your appointment, gather any information about your insurance or medications and have them ready ahead of time. Arrive early, and be sure to let your dentist know if you’re experiencing discomfort or anxiety.

Why Is Visiting a Dentist Necessary?

Regular checkups with our general dentist in Center City Philadelphia are critical to your oral health. Without a dental exam, you may not know if your teeth and gums are being damaged by disease and decay. When left untreated, dental problems can become time-consuming and costly to repair. Don’t neglect your dental health – give us a call today to make an appointment.
