Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Dentistry can be a big, oftentimes intimidating subject for patients – thankfully, the Fulshear Dental team has answers to all your questions! We’ve taken the time to compile some of the answers to our most frequently asked dentistry questions below in one convenient place. If you can’t find the information you need below, that’s no problem either. Don’t hesitate to contact us directly in Fulshear, TX, where you’ll be able to speak to a team member or even Dr. Fifadara herself.

Do you see children?

Yes! Dr. Fifadara really enjoys caring for the whole family, which includes littler smiles that are still in the process of growing. Our dental office features several kid-friendly services that will help them build a strong foundation of great oral health that hopefully lasts well into the future, including dental sealants, professional fluoride treatment, tooth-colored fillings, and more.

I’m having a dental emergency! Can you help?

Absolutely. Whether you’re brand-new to Fulshear Dental or an existing patient, our team will do their very best to accommodate urgent situations right away. In fact, our extended dental office hours make it possible to plan appointments on the same day as your initial call in many cases for immediate relief! Don’t wait – contact us ASAP.

What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?

There are several options for rebuilding strong, confident smiles out there, and Dr. Fifadara wants to help you discover the one that fits your particular needs, preferences, and overall budget best – no two patients’ needs are exactly alike! Whenever possible, she does recommend dental implants because of the amazing health and aesthetic benefits they provide. New, implant-retained “teeth” are virtually seamless when compared to the original, both in terms of the overall feel and appearance – and they’re built to last for several decades at a time too!

I want a straighter smile but hate the idea of wearing metal braces. Is there another way?

We have some good news for you. Invisalign® Clear Aligners are available here in Fulshear, which can provide beautiful, lasting orthodontic improvements without those frustrating brackets and wires. Instead, patients wear a series of clear, comfortable aligners, with each aligner painstakingly designed to represent a different stage of unique tooth movement. They’re also 100% removable, which means that you can continue to enjoy an unhindered diet throughout the treatment process and even brush and floss like normal.

Do you offer any appointment times outside of normal business hours?

Yes! We strongly believe in combining much-needed convenience with reliable clinical quality and compassion – that’s why Fulshear Dental is open until 7:00 pm on multiple weeknights. Saturday appointments are also available for busy patients and families who aren’t able to miss work, school, and other pressing commitments. These times do book up fast, so be sure to contact us as soon as possible to reserve you or your loved one’s spot. We can’t wait to see you soon!

Do you take dental insurance?

Our dental office is proudly in-network with many major PPO insurance plans, and we can even file claims for out-of-network plans in order to maximize the patient’s well-deserved benefits. To learn more about your financial options, please visit our new patients page or contact us directly.
