Visiting the dental office is a great way to improve and correct your oral health. Whether you’re coming in for a cleaning or have more extensive work to be done, the appointment is done as quickly and comfortably as possible. However, no matter what type of work you need to have done, you probably want to know how long you’ll be in the office to help in scheduling your day.
How Long is a Typical Dental Appointment?
It is safe to say that most dental appointments are roughly an hour long. Some procedures, like fillings or less invasive treatment can take as little as a half an hour. Other procedures, like root canals, extractions, cleanings and emergency appointments can take about an hour. It is always a good idea to ask the staff about the procedure you’ll need to have done and how long you can expect for it to take. By giving yourself about an hour in the office, you are able to work your appointment conveniently around other engagements and errands that you might have.
