You can always contact the team at Apex Dental Care with any questions you might have about your treatment plan or oral health. Here are some frequently asked questions many patients ask:
What can I expect during my consultation?
Your first visit with us will last about 90 minutes and will involve a comprehensive exam, digital X-rays, and an oral health evaluation. One of our doctors will also sit down with you and discuss your health history and treatment options.
How long will my procedure take?
This will depend on the type of procedure or treatment you are receiving. We can explain post-care instructions and an estimated recovery time before you book your appointment.
Why should I get a cavity filled if it doesn’t hurt?
Cavities tend to grow and are a sign of an active infection in the mouth. Even though they may not cause any pain or irritation, they may end up requiring a root canal if left untreated.
Why do I need gum disease treatment?
Many people do not realize that gum disease is an active infection in the mouth and needs to be treated as soon as it is detected. We offer periodontal disease screenings and can put together a treatment plan that will help to eradicate gum disease.
Will I need to take time off work for my treatment?
We will discuss the recovery time for treatment during your consultation. Some services may require you to take time off work while others will only require you to take the rest of the day off for healing.
What if I am too scared to go to the dentist?
We understand that many people are fearful about going to the dentist but we are here to help you work through those fears and ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. Don’t hesitate to ask us questions about your treatments and services available.
How much will my treatments cost?
The cost of treatment will vary significantly by patient and we will provide you with a breakdown of treatment costs during your consultation. We can also provide information about financial options during your first visit.
Will insurance pay for my treatments?
We do accept many insurance plans and can assist you with processing insurance claims. Talk to us about insurance payments and financing plans that can help you get the treatment you need within an appropriate timeframe.
How long will my results last?
We work hard to ensure our patients enjoy long-lasting results and will provide you with an estimated time during your consultation.
