General Dentists in Fishkill

A smile can make a great first impression. If you want to feel positive about your smile and yourself, there are two simple steps you should take. First, practice good daily dental hygiene habits. Second, schedule regular dental exams and teeth cleanings with our general dentist in Fishkill.

What Is A General Dentist?

A general dentist is your primary dental care provider. Our general dentists in Fishkill are skilled at diagnosing, treating, and managing your oral health needs, including both teeth and gums. They perform preventive, restorative and cosmetic procedures to improve the health and appearance of smiles. Our dentists also help prevent dental problems by educating their patients – both children and adults – on the practice of excellent oral hygiene.

How Can a General Dentist Help You?

The importance of dental health extends far beyond the condition of your mouth. In fact, the mouth has been called the gateway to the body. Poor dental health has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, sleep apnea and complications during pregnancy, which is why a general dentist is so important in both your dental and overall health. Our dentists have a broad knowledge and experience in how to keep your dental health at an optimum level by providing the following:

Prevention: While daily oral hygiene is vital to your dental health, so are the exams and professional cleanings. We educate people on good dental habits while providing such options as sealants or mouth guards in an effort to prevent the wear, decay and disease of your teeth and gums before it can get started.

Restoration: This can be as simple as filling a cavity or placing a crown, or as involved as the replacement of teeth with bridgework, dental implants, or a variety of denture options.

Cosmetic: By offering such treatments as teeth whitening, bonding, Invisalign® and veneers, not only can the appearance of your smile be significantly enhanced but so can your overall confidence in yourself.

What Services Do General Dentists Offer?

Whether you want or need a preventive, restorative or cosmetic procedure, general dentists can provide an option to satisfy your particular situation. Whatever the case, any of these services can ensure the highest level of dental health and the invaluable confidence that comes with an attractive smile. To discuss our complete range of general dentistry services which is listed below, please call our office to talk with our friendly staff or arrange a consultation with one of our experienced dentists.

How Often Should You Visit A Dentist?

In general, most patients are wise to visit their dentist twice a year for a dental examination and a thorough, professional teeth cleaning. However, other factors such as your age or dental condition might make it advisable or necessary to increase your number of visits.

How Much Does A Dental Visit Cost?

The cost depends on several factors, including your current dental health, if your appointment is for a preexisting dental problem, or if your dentist discovers a particular issue such a cavity, for example, during the course of a routine dental examination. When you come in for your appointment, we’ll evaluate your oral health and create a customized treatment plan for you. We’ll go over the recommendations and the costs with you and gain your approval before starting any treatment.

Your insurance coverage can also affect your cost. If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about the DentRite® discount dental plan, which can help you save money on dental procedures.

How Do You Make A Dentist Appointment?

It couldn’t be easier! To schedule an appointment, just call the friendly staff at (845) 764-9315 and request an available date and time that best suits your particular schedule.

How Should You Prepare For An Appointment?

There are things you can do to expedite your appointment in a more timely fashion. You can help us help you by doing the following:

  • Arrive to appointment on time.
  • Have your insurance information ready and available
  • Supply us with any new medical conditions or information, including prescriptions
  • If you’re feeling anxiety about your appointment, please let us know so we can make your experience relaxed and as pleasant as possible during your visit.

Are Dental Visits Required?

In your own best interest, going to your annual dental visits is strongly advised. Doing so not only goes a long way toward preventing dental decay and disease but also can help you to avoid costly, painful, pervasive remedies at a later time if otherwise left untreated. To keep a strong, healthy wonderful smile, call our friendly staff for an office appointment today. Our phone number is (845) 764-9315.
