General Information

Common Questions

What should I expect for the consultation visit?

Your first visit with us is usually a 30 minutes consultation. Dr. Li will examine your teeth and sit down with you to review digital X-ray images and discuss what the problem is (diagnosis) and how we are going to fix it (treatment plan). Sometimes a 3D CBCT scan maybe recommended.

Will the treatment be painful?

We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.

Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?

Yes, for most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office 1 year after the procedure was finished. Our office will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.
