General Dentists in Reading

Do you want to experience the benefits of a bright, pain-free smile? If so, you should book an appointment with a general dentist in Reading. Seeing a dentist for regular dental exams and cleanings is the best way to keep your teeth in excellent condition.

Why Should You See a Dentist?

When it comes to dental health problems, early treatment is key. Many dental problems can be reversed when diagnosed early, including gum disease and tooth decay. Visiting a general dentist for routine exams can prevent you from needing time-consuming, expensive dental procedures. General dentists can also advise you on the proper way to care for your teeth at home, which can help you keep your teeth and gums clean between dental cleanings.

How Is a General Dentist Different from a Specialist?

As a primary dental care provider, your general dentist is the person you’ll visit for most of your dental care needs. General dentists administer oral cancer screenings, create X-rays, and provide thorough dental cleanings. With routine services from your dentist, you’ll be able to preserve your teeth throughout your lifetime. Set up your appointment today by giving our general dental office a call.

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

Every patient is different; therefore, the number of required dental appointments will vary for everyone. Most healthy people only need to visit a dentist every six months, but those with ongoing dental health issues may require several follow-up appointments.

What Will My Dental Appointment Cost?

Cost is a common concern when receiving general dentistry services. Typically, your charges will include all necessary treatments and will factor in your insurance coverage, if applicable. Please call us if you have questions regarding pricing, insurance, or payment.

How Do Dentists Clean Teeth?

It’s important to brush and floss at home. However, only a professional dental cleaning can truly protect your teeth from damaging plaque and tartar. During an oral cleaning, your dentist or dental hygienist will use several instruments to gently scrub and polish your teeth. These tools reach areas where home brushing and flossing cannot. Keep your teeth sparkling clean by scheduling an exam and dental cleaning with our dentist general practice.

How Long Do Dental Appointments Last with Your Dentists?

Patients receiving a routine dental exam or cleaning will typically have an appointment that lasts approximately 30-60 minutes. However, extensive dental work may take several hours to complete.
