General Dentists in Falls Church

Caring for your teeth and gums is important no matter what your age. When it comes to achieving a sparkling, pain-free smile, visiting a general dentist in Falls Church is essential. These skilled professionals can help you maintain your teeth for decades to come.

Should You Go to the Dentist Regularly?

Receiving regular dental checkups and cleanings is your best line of defense against cavities, gum infections, and even tooth loss. At your dental checkup, your general dentist can pinpoint and resolve problems before they get worse. Over time, regular dental visits can greatly decrease the risk of needing time-consuming, expensive dental procedures. Call our office today to make an appointment.

The Role of a General Dentist

Acting as a primary dental care provider, a general dentist is often the dentist people visit most. These dental professionals have decided to offer comprehensive care instead of specializing in a specific type of dental care. Patients can visit general dentists for teeth cleanings, dental exams, and other routine procedures. General dentists can also treat a variety of common dental conditions, including gingivitis and toothaches.

At our modern facility, our general dentists provide several valuable general dentistry services. The following are the services you can receive at our general family dentistry practice.

How Often Should You Go to the Dentist In Your Area?

When exploring the benefits of regular dental care, you may begin to wonder, “How frequently should I see a general dentist near me?” While healthy patients should visit the dentist about every 6 months, those with extensive dental conditions may require additional appointments.

What Is the Typical Cost of a Dental Visit?

Dental visit costs vary widely from patient to patient. The treatments you need to maintain your healthy smile and whether you have insurance will factor into your total charges. Please give our office a call if you have any questions about the price of your first visit.

How Do Dentists Keep Your Teeth Clean?

Professional dental cleanings help keep your teeth and gums healthy and polished. General dentists and dental hygienists use a variety of manual and ultrasonic cleaning tools to clean, buff, and polish your teeth. Receiving regular cleanings can prevent a buildup of plaque and tartar, decreasing the chance of severe tooth decay or gum disease.

How Long Does a Dental Visit Last?

Routine dental examinations and cleanings at a dentist general practice usually take about 30 minutes to an hour. If you require multiple procedures, your appointment time may be longer. Please call our office if you have questions about a scheduled visit.

How Can I Prepare for a Dental Appointment?

Some patients experience slight anxiety when going to the dentist. Preparing information about your insurance and medical history ahead of time can help ease your stress. Gather a list of your current medications and call your insurance provider if you have questions about coverage. If you have questions while preparing for your appointment, please give our general dental office a call.
