What is general dentistry?

General dentistry focuses on improving and maintaining overall oral health. At our dental office, we provide preventive care to protect teeth from decay and multiple restorative treatments to repair any existing damage. After listening to your concerns and performing a series of evaluations, Dr. Taylor will create a personalized treatment plan to give you the smile of your dreams.


How often should I visit the dentist?

Your teeth require regular care and attention. It is important to visit our dental office routinely each year to maintain a healthy smile. We suggest coming in for a dental cleaning and exam once every six months. However, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to call our office immediately:


  • Tooth pain when biting and chewing
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Bleeding or swollen gums
  • Chipped or broken teeth


These symptoms are generally indications of tooth decay or damage that needs to be treated quickly. At the dental practice of Robert Taylor, DDS, we provide comprehensive general dentistry in Carmel, Indiana for your entire family. To learn more about our treatments and to schedule an appointment, we invite you to contact a member of our dental team today. We look forward to working with you!
