General Dentists in Annapolis

If you want your smile to look and feel its very best, you must take care of your teeth and gums. All that this requires is maintaining healthy dental habits and going to a general dentist for the professional treatment you need.

How Does a General Dentist Differ from Other Dentists?

These dentists provide all the general dental care that adults, teens, and children need for healthy teeth and gums. Unlike specialty dentists that focus on distinct dental areas, general dental providers perform a complete spectrum of general services to keep your smile healthy.

What Can General Dental Professionals Do for You?

When you visit a general dental professional, you will find a vast range of general dentistry services to prevent dental problems, preserve good dental health, and repair dental damage. The most requested dental services are routine examinations, regular cleanings, fillings for cavities, tooth pain relief, and repair for dental damage. But there are many more dental procedures and treatments offered by a general practice.

How Many General Dentistry Services Can You Expect to Find Today?

The list of general procedures, treatments, and surgeries found in a general practice is seemingly endless with a dental service for almost every general need and condition. At our general practice, we feature the following comprehensive range of dental services.

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

Should You Visit a General Dentist Very Often?

Most people only need to visit a dentist twice a year for routine check-ups and cleanings. But the frequency of your visits will ultimately depend on some personal factors, such as your age and the condition of your teeth and gums.

What Will Visiting a General Dental Office Cost?

We understand that our patients biggest concern about visiting a dentist is, “What will it cost to see a general dentist near me?” This is difficult to answer because each patient has different treatment needs and dental insurance plans, so the cost of a visit will be a reflection of the dental procedures performed and their insurance coverage. Please call our office if you would like to receive an estimate of the cost of the visit.

What Do You Need to Set up an Appointment with a Dentist General Practice?

Scheduling a dental appointment is very quick and easy. Just call our general practice, request a dental visit, and tell us the dates and times that you’re able to come in. We can schedule your appointment when it’s most convenient.

Are Dentist Appointments Quick Or Lengthy?

Expect your visit to a general family dentistry office to take around an hour. But this can vary a great deal. Complex procedures can require several hours to complete, while follow-ups can be over in less than 30 minutes. If your time is limited on the day of your visit, please call our office to let us know.

Do You Need to Prepare to Visit a Dentist?

No, there is barely anything you need to do. When you come for your appointment, we simply request that you arrive a few minutes early, be ready to inform us of any medical issues, and have your insurance details on hand. Since some patients become rather anxious about seeing a dentist, let us know and we can ensure a more comfortable experience.

Do You Really Have to Go to the Dentist?

Even you may be nervous or uncomfortable about dental visits, they are absolutely necessary to protect your dental health. Avoiding dental treatment may seem like an easy way out, but will only lead to extensive, painful, and costly dental damage. Be assured that visiting our general practice will be a completely pleasant and comfortable experience. To arrange a convenient dental appointment, call our office today.
