Proper care of teeth and gums is essential for maintaining oral health and even general health, but many people haven’t seen a dentist in years. Regardless of your age or the extent of your dental disease, an affordable dental care provider can help you get your smile back on the right track. If it’s been a long time since your last general dentistry experience, you may have a few questions. Answers to the most common questions about dental visits are listed below:

1. What’s the Best Way to Find an Affordable Dental Care Provider?
Your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and medical providers may be able to recommend a great dentist. You can also check your local business directories. If you can’t locate dental health listings, the ADA website has a convenient Find-a-Dentist feature that you can use.

2. What should I Expect During a Checkup?
Your dentist will ask questions about your medical and dental history and perform a visual and manual exam of your teeth, gums, and mouth. If needed, X-rays may be taken. Your provider will evaluate your overall dental health and recommend a treatment or maintenance plan. You may also receive a professional dental cleaning from a dental hygienist.

3. When Choosing a Family Dental Mount Dora Dentist, what Should I Look for?
Seek out a dentist with the right credentials, emergency care options, convenient hours, a clean office, and a caring and professional manner. Make sure to check with your insurance provider to determine if a certain dentist is within its network. Call your family dental Mount Dora office to verify that your dentist is a member of the ADA.

4. If I Don’t Have Symptoms, Do I Really Need to See a Dentist?
Many dental problems don’t have noticeable symptoms until they become advanced and more difficult and expensive to treat. It’s important to get regular affordable dental care even when your mouth feels fine. Early detection and treatment produces the best and most affordable outcomes.

5. How often Do I Need to See my Dentist?
Most general dentistry experts recommend seeing your dentist once or twice every year. However, if you have chronic dental disease or certain medical conditions that affect your oral health, you may need more frequent checkups.

6. What are Some Signs that Mean I Need to See a Dentist Soon?

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Pregnancy
  • A history of immune dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or HIV
  • Jaw pain or popping
  • Chemotherapy
  • Pain or swelling in your teeth, mouth, face, or neck
