General Dentists in Mishawaka

Caring for your teeth and gums is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Together with a general dentist in Mishawaka, you can preserve your natural teeth and enjoy a brilliant, comfortable smile.

All About a General Dentist

A general dentist acts as the main dental care provider for adults and children. While some dentists specialize in one field, general dentists provide an array of services. General dentists work to keep your smile healthy throughout all stages of life. Your general dental office is typically where you receive dental checkups, oral cancer screenings, and tooth cleanings.

What Services Do Family Dentists Offer?

Our dentist general practice focuses on ensuring patients’ long-term dental health. We provide thorough dental exams, routine and deep dental cleanings, and treatment for common conditions like toothaches and gum disease. Whether it’s time for a routine checkup or you’re experiencing symptoms of a dental problem, our skilled dentists can help.

How Often Should I See a Dentist?

One question we often receive from patients is, “How often should I see a general dentist near me?” Typically, your age and how healthy your teeth and gums are will determine how many dental visits you need. If a dental problem is diagnosed, you may require several follow-up visits.

What Is the Cost of a Dental Visit?

The cost of your first visit will depend on what treatments are required and whether you have dental insurance. If you have questions about pricing or payment, give us a call to speak with one of our staff members.

Why Is Seeing a Dentist Important?

Regular visits to a general dentist are vital to maintaining a healthy smile. Not only do good oral hygiene habits protect your teeth and gums, they also benefit your whole body. In fact, receiving general dentistry services regularly is associated with a lower risk of stroke, diabetes, and other medical conditions. Give us a call today to schedule your appointment.

How Long Does a Dental Cleaning Last?

A thorough dental cleaning from a dentist or dental hygienist typically lasts approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on the condition of your teeth. If you’ve neglected your oral hygiene, your cleaning may take longer to complete.

How to Prepare for a Dental Visit

Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be stressful. To get organized before your appointment, gather as much information about your prescriptions, health history, and insurance plan as possible. This can help you complete paperwork easily, saving time before treatment.

What Happens When You Don’t Visit a Dentist?

When you don’t visit a general family dentistry office for checkups and cleanings, gum disease and tooth decay can do damage to your teeth without your knowledge. This can lead to cavities, tooth loss, and other uncomfortable conditions. Regular dental care is essential to enjoying a pain-free smile. Call us today to set up your initial appointment.
