Every year, over 500,000 people choose dental implants because of their amazing benefits, including their lifelike strength and beauty. However, the treatment process differs from other options because implants require surgery. No matter how many teeth you’re missing, your treatment will always start with an initial consult. To give you confidence and peace of mind, your dentist has explained exactly what you can expect during your implant consultation!
Oral Exam & Medical History
First, your dentist will carefully examine your mouth and review your medical history. They will assess your oral health by taking a close look at the condition of your gums and remaining teeth. Your dentist will also evaluate your jawbone density to determine if your bone is strong enough to support dental implants. If you have inadequate bone density, you still may be able to benefit from implants thanks to bone grafting.
X-Rays for Better Understanding
Next, you’ll have X-rays of your mouth taken to show how dense your bone is. This will determine if you have enough bone structure or if you’ll need grafting. The X-rays also give your dentist a chance to catch any issues, like hidden decay, to prevent them from getting worse in the future. It’s imperative that your dental pro has a full look at your entire mouth so they can create the best plan for your needs.
Discussion of Your Treatment Options
After your dentist has reviewed your oral health, medical history, and X-rays, you’ll begin the exciting part of treatment! Your dentist will discuss whether dental implants are a good option for your smile, including the number of implants you’ll need for your replacements. This is also a great time to ask any questions you may have about the upcoming treatment.
All that’s left to do during the consultation is to go over your custom-made treatment plan! Your dentist will discuss your surgery, recovery, and final restorations. They will provide you with useful information like estimated treatment time and cost. Additionally, they will recommend any preliminary treatments you may need before getting dental implants. Tooth extractions, gum disease therapy, and bone grafting are some of the most common dental services needed. These key treatments keep your mouth healthy and ensure the success of your dental implants.
