General Dentists in Indiana

Do you want to achieve a healthy, sparkling smile? If so, visiting a skilled general dentist in Indiana is key. Our general dentists offer comprehensive care that protects your smile against decay and disease.

Why Should You Go to the Dentist?

There are many reasons why it’s important to see a general dentist for regular checkups. First, only a dentist can properly diagnose and treat dental health problems, including cavities and gum disease. Second, your general dental office is where you receive professional cleanings, which are vital to maintaining the health of teeth and gum tissue. Finally, early detection of dental problems can save you hundreds of dollars on dental care over the long term, in addition to reducing the need for invasive dental work.

What Services Can I Receive from a General Dentist?

A family dentist often is the person adults and children see most for their dental care needs. At a dentist general practice, you can receive routine checkups and X-rays, teeth cleanings, restorative work, and more. Your dentist may also counsel you on the best way to brush and floss your teeth at home. Call us today to set up your initial visit.

How Often Should I Visit a Family Dentist?

Most patients with healthy teeth and gums only need to visit a dentist every six months. If your dentist detects an oral health problem, you may need to visit our office for a follow-up visit.

How Much Does It Cost to See a Dentist?

All patients have different dental care needs. So, the cost of a dental appointment varies widely. What your insurance plan covers and which procedures are required will determine your total charges.

What Is a Dental Cleaning?

A dental cleaning is an important part of a routine dental checkup. During a cleaning, your dentist or dental hygienist will use several tools to cleanse and polish your teeth. These tools can reach areas of the mouth that brushing and flossing at home simply cannot. After the procedure, fluoride may be added to your teeth, which protects your enamel.

How Long Does a Dentist Appointment Take?

Those with busy schedules often ask us, “How will it take when I visit a general dentist near me?” The length of your visit will depend on what general dentistry services are required to maintain your smile. However, most appointments are completed within an hour or less.

What Are the Numbers Dentists Use to Examine Gums?

During your dental exam, you may notice that the dentist announces numbers to a dental assistant when checking your gum line with a probing tool. This is called dental charting, which focuses on the depth of your gums’ pockets. While measurements of 3 millimeters or less are considered acceptable, pockets that are over 3 millimeters in depth may indicate gingivitis.

Why Is Good Dental Health Necessary?

Taking the time to care for your teeth benefits your whole body. Not only do healthy teeth look better, they also are less prone to developing infections and inflammation. Dental infections and chronic inflammation can affect other areas of your body causing a wide range of medical conditions. Regular care from a general dentist also protects you against tooth loss, allowing you to chew and speak comfortably.
