General Dentists in Thorndale

A great smile has no substitute, and to keep your smile looking its best, you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. You can do this through good oral hygiene and a little help from a great general or family dentist.

The Value of Your General Dentist

As a primary dental care provider, your general dentist focuses on the lifelong health of your teeth and gums. Many trusted general dentists treat entire families through many life stages. Rather than focusing on one specific aspect of dentistry, general family dentistry providers manage a wide variety of common and uncommon dental conditions.

What Does a General Dentist’s Job Entail?

Your dentist keeps your teeth healthy through regular exams, cleanings, placements of crowns and fillings, root canals, enamel repairs and reinforcement, home dental care counseling and a variety of other measures. When you have dental emergency, an injury or a question about your oral health, your dentist is there for you.

How Often Should I See a General Dentist Near Me?

Most people should visit their dentists once every six months for a routine exam and dental cleaning. Patients who have underlying medical problems or chronic dental disease may need more frequent care. You should always see your dentist when sudden tooth pain or other symptoms arise.

Will It Cost Much to See a Dentist?

The price of dental care depends on what procedures and tests are performed and how much of the total is covered by insurance. If you’re worried about the cost of your visit, please call our office for more information about fees and payment options.

How to Make Your Dentist Appointment

The staff at our general dental office will be happy to help you find a great dentist in your area who can keep your smile in top condition. Simply contact us to schedule your appointment, and we’ll walk you through the rest.

How Much Time Should I Set Aside for My Dentist General Practice Appointment?

The length of your appointment can vary from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the purpose of your visit and the types of tests and procedures that your dentist performs. For more specific details about estimated treatment times, call our office directly.

How Do I Prepare for a Dentist Appointment?

To make your appointment go smoothly, remember these important tips.

  • Arrive at or before the scheduled appointment time.
  • Bring your dental insurance details, a list of current medications and a general medical history.
  • If you struggle with dental anxiety during appointments, let us know so that we can help make your visit less intimidating.

What Happens to Your Teeth When You Don’t Go to the Dentist?

If you don’t obtain regular dental exams, you may develop undetected tooth decay or gum disease. If left untreated, it will progress until invasive and costly procedures are needed to repair the damage. In extreme cases, you may lose your natural teeth and have to use dentures or have implant surgery. To save yourself from the pain, hassle and expense, see your dentist regularly so that minor problems can be corrected before they cause serious, irreversible damage. If you’re ready to connect with one of our experienced general dentists, call us today.


Tooth decay is sometimes so extensive that a filling is not sufficient to stop the damage. A tooth can also be left vulnerable if a large piece of the enamel is cracked or chipped off by some type of impact. […]
