What does a typical Dental Hygiene appointment involve at South Georgetown Dental?

A Dental Hygiene appointment typically involves a thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup, polishing to remove stains, and an assessment of your gum health. Our hygienists also provide personalized advice on improving your at-home oral care routine.

How do I know if I need a Filling, and what types do you offer?

If you experience tooth sensitivity, discomfort, or notice a visible hole or dark spot on your tooth, you may need a filling. At South Georgetown Dental, we offer both amalgam (silver) fillings and composite (tooth-colored) fillings, and we’ll recommend the best option based on the location and extent of decay.

Can you explain the process for getting Crown & Bridges?

The process typically requires two visits. During the first visit, we prepare the affected teeth, take impressions for the custom crown or bridge, and fit a temporary solution. On the second visit, we fit the permanent crown or bridge, ensuring it matches your natural teeth in color and bite alignment for a seamless finish.

Are Veneers a good option for everyone?

Veneers can be an excellent option for correcting a variety of dental issues, such as discoloration, chips, or gaps between teeth. However, they may not be suitable for everyone. We recommend scheduling a consultation to discuss whether veneers are the best option for your specific dental concerns.

What is involved in the Invisalign treatment process?

Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of clear, custom-made aligners that gradually move your teeth into the desired position. The process starts with a consultation to assess your needs, followed by creating a digital treatment plan. You'll receive new aligners every few weeks, with regular check-ups to monitor progress.

How long does a typical Root Canal procedure take?

A typical root canal procedure can take one to two visits, each lasting from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the complexity of the case and the affected tooth. Our goal is to ensure the process is as comfortable and efficient as possible.
