General Dentists in Westland

Practicing good dental health habits is key when it comes to achieving a glowing, pain-free smile. To keep your teeth and gums free of disease and decay, be sure to schedule regular checkups with a general dentist in Westland. General dentists can eliminate dental problems before they become severe.

Why Should You Visit One of Our Skilled Dentists?

Good dental health is an important aspect of overall wellness. Failing to receive proper dental care can lead to gum disease, oral infections, and even tooth loss. Once decay has damaged a tooth, it must be repaired by a general dentist. Fortunately, many dental health problems can be resolved before they cause severe damage to your teeth or gums. Give your teeth the care they deserve – call us today to set up an appointment.

General Dentists

A general dentist’s goal is to help patients of all ages achieve healthy teeth and gums. These medical professionals serve as primary dental care providers, administering routine exams and procedures. General dentists can also diagnose and treat oral infections, tooth decay, and other problems. Your general dental office is also where you’ll receive a tooth cleaning, which is an essential part of dental health.

How Frequently Should You See a Dentist?

You may be wondering, “How many times should I visit a general dentist near me?” Most healthy patients will only need to book a dental checkup every six months. If you are diagnosed with a dental health problem, you may require additional appointments.

What Is the Cost of a Dental Appointment?

The cost of your dentist general practice visit will depend on your insurance plan and the treatments needed to care for your smile. Please give us a call for more details about pricing.

How Does a Dentist Keep Teeth Healthy?

Regular dental cleanings protect your teeth and gums against cavities and infection. During a cleaning procedure, a dentist or dental hygienist uses several instruments to polish your teeth. Plaque and tartar is removed from areas that simply can’t be reached by brushing and flossing at home. With thorough dental cleanings from our office, you can enjoy a fresh, dazzling smile.

Dental Appointment Time Expectations

Most dental appointments last anywhere between 30 minutes to a full hour. Appointments
for intensive general dentistry services may require more time. Please call us if you are concerned about the duration of an upcoming visit.
