General Dentistry

Many people avoid visiting the dentist regularly and only seek a general dentist’s help in times of crisis. While the Babcock Family Dental team is equipped to handle dental emergencies, it’s wiser to prevent a problem rather than try to solve it.

Many dental conditions go unnoticed until their advanced stages, so general dentistry serves as a method of monitoring and catching dental health issues before it’s too late. Regular general dentist visits allow Dr. Nikhaar Keshwani to detect problems early, saving you time, costs, and unnecessary stress.

Most Common General Dentistry Questions Answered

Our general dentist and dedicated team want you to understand how important oral health is and is willing to answer any questions you might have about yours. Here are the most frequently asked questions regarding general dentistry. If you have more, please write them down and bring them to your initial family dentistry appointment at Babcock Family Dental.

  1. How often should I visit the dentist?

As a rule of thumb, most oral health professionals suggest visiting the dentist every six months. However, you might need to visit the general dentist more or less, depending on your oral health status.

  1. Why are dental x-rays necessary?

Many oral health issues are invisible to the naked eye, so Dr. Keshwani sometimes performs low-radiation digital x-rays to see infections inside the tooth and jawbone, dental abscesses, and other developmental issues.

  1. Do I really need to floss?

While brushing can eliminate most oral bacteria, toothbrush bristles cannot reach every section of the mouth. Flossing helps eliminate sneaky bacteria that hide in the crevices between the teeth. Without flossing, plaque and food debris accumulate, harden into tartar, and destroy the teeth and gums.
