How long will my procedure take?
Treatment times vary depending on the procedure you are having. Of course, not every aspect of treatment is predictable, but we will give you an estimate of what you can expect when we diagnose your condition and arrange your appointment.
In general, one can expect the following times:
- New patient exam, x-rays, and photos – 1.5 hours
- Established patient exam, x-rays, cleaning – 50 minutes
- Fillings – 30 to 60 minutes
- Crowns – 1.5 hours
We request that you update any insurance changes, medical history, or medications when you arrive in our office. This will allow us to provide you with the best care possible and to ensure your safety while we treat you.
You are also welcome to arrange a consultation with Dr. Appel to discuss your goals for your smile. We can make this a separate appointment, or you can discuss it at your next exam. Our team is always available to discuss treatment or answer questions so that you feel more confident in your care.
We strive to remain on time so that you can fit dentistry into your schedule without any complications.
Give us a call if you have a question about your treatment times or what to expect with your procedure.
