General Dentists in Bloomington

Nothing exudes good health quite like a clean, confident smile. With good habits at home and regular care from a general dentist in Bloomington, you’ll achieve a sparkling smile that you’ll be proud to show off.

What Responsibilities Does a General Dentist Have?

Also called a family dentist, a general dentist is a dental professional who is responsible for a patient’s overall dental health. These dentists offer a full range of dental services instead of specializing in one area. At our general family practice, our skilled general dentists can diagnose and treat most common dental conditions.

What Services Does a General Dentist Offer?

The majority of routine dentistry services can be completed by general dentists. These procedures include tooth cleanings, X-rays, dental exams, and oral cancer screenings. Our experienced dentists also provide tooth fillings, restorations, and other treatments that preserve the health of your gums and teeth.

General Dentistry Services

At our dentist general practice, we’re committed to helping people of all ages achieve great dental health. We currently offer the following general family dentistry services for our patients.

  • All-on-4® Treatment Concept
  • Dental Implants
  • Dental Sealants
  • Dentures and Dental Services
  • Gingivitis/Gum Disease Treatment
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Oral Hygiene and Bad Breath Cure
  • Restorative Dentistry and Tooth Fillings
  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Tooth Crowns and Bridges
  • Tooth Extractions

How Often Should I Go to the Dentist?

Every patient has different needs when it comes to dental care. The condition of your teeth and gums and your age will determine how often you should see a dentist. Most healthy patients should see a dentist every six months.

How Much Does a Routine Dental Visit Cost?

The cost of dental care depends on the number of treatments needed and whether you have dental insurance. If you have questions about the cost of your upcoming visit, please call our office.

Why Should I Visit a General Dentist Near Me?

Visiting a local dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings is the best way to ensure good oral health. People who avoid the dentist may end up needing more invasive and expensive dental care down the line.

How Long Does a Dental Cleaning Take?

If you’re practicing excellent oral hygiene habits at home, your cleaning may only take approximately 30 minutes. Those who have excessive decay or gum disease may require a longer cleaning.

Preparing for a Dental Appointment

Taking the time to gather the information you will need before your visit can help ease dental anxiety. Before visiting our general dental office, compile a list of your current medications and health conditions. It’s also helpful to call your insurance provider to explore your coverage options.

What Happens When You Don’t Go to a Dentist?

It’s possible to enjoy lifelong dental health when you receive regular general dentistry services. However, those who neglect dental care may experience toothaches, gingivitis, or more severe conditions like tooth loss. Fortunately, you can prevent severe dental problems by visiting our skilled general dentists. Call us today to set up a dental exam and cleaning.
