What To Expect at Your Initial Complimentary Dental Consultation
Consultations can make some patients nervous, but there’s nothing to fear. If you’re stressing about this appointment, talking with our team will help you feel more comfortable.
Here’s what to expect at your initial complimentary dental consultation:
Dental history check
We do this to know about your dental past so that we can identify patterns and plan out your treatment.
We take a careful look at your teeth to learn about your oral health and identify the proper steps to take to achieve your goals.
If you might need an implant placement or undergo surgery, we’ll want to take x-rays or CT scans to ensure that we have precise, detailed images of the treatment area and surrounding structures.
We’ll recommend treatments that meet your needs, improve your oral function, and increase your chances of success.
Answers to your questions
We want you to be well-informed and educated about your options so that you can fully understand any procedure and its outcomes. It’s good to do some research before your session to prepare for a thorough discussion.
Discuss costs and insurance coverage
If you have dental insurance, we’ll go over what kind of coverage you may expect. If you don’t, we’ll go over our rates and the potential treatment costs with you.
As much as we would like to save all teeth, some circumstances require a tooth extraction due to extensive dental decay, deep fractures, or gum disease. In these instances, it is crucial to understand your tooth replacement options.
Do you have a missing tooth that needs replacement? At Smile Design Dentistry, we believe everyone deserves compassionate and affordable dental care. Schedule an appointment with us today to learn more about your tooth replacement options.
