If you are thinking about getting dental implants, it is essential that you come in for a consultation so that your suitability for this particular treatment can be thoroughly assessed. Part of the consultation will involve answering questions about your medical history, your lifestyle and habits, as well as how you would like your smile to look after treatment. Factors like your oral health and jawbone density will also be taken into account. X-rays and photographs will be taken of your teeth and mouth and you will also have a detailed dental examination. This will give the team a good idea of your current oral health and which treatment will give you the best results.
This initial consultation is a good opportunity for you to ask any questions that you might have about the treatment and to discuss your preference for sedation. Based on the current state of your teeth, you may need to receive a few treatments with the hygienist in preparation for the implants.
Choosing to have implant treatment is a big decision and something worth discussing with your loved ones. For this reason you will be sent a treatment plan after the consultation with a breakdown of the costs so you can look this over and consider the options presented.
