Timeline Consultation for Dental Implant

What to Expect During Your Dental Implants Consultation

monarch-floral 1 (1)
Choosing a method to restore your missing teeth is an important decision that will impact your appearance and oral health for years to come. We strive to make this decision process as simple and comfortable as possible. Dental implants are widely recognized as the best restorative option available. These titanium posts are surgically placed in the jaw, where they can support a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
We individually tailor each course of treatment so that it alleviates any anxiety you have, in addition to restoring function and aesthetics to your smile. The first step in the process is a dental implants consultation at our Queens dental practice. During this initial appointment, we can determine your candidacy and begin to form a personalized treatment plan. Our skilled dentists, Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel, will take the time to carefully explain each step in your procedure, ensuring you fully understand all aspects of your care before your surgery. To schedule your dental implants consultation, please contact our office today.

Your Evaluation and Other Considerations

During your first visit, one of our doctors will perform an examination of your mouth including an oral cancer screening and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) evaluation. You will discuss a detailed health history so your doctor can identify any possible conditions that might complicate your procedure. If your doctor discovers any signs of periodontal disease or infection during the exam, we will need to bring these conditions under control before beginning your implant procedure.
After your oral and general health are evaluated, we will take tomographic x-rays of your mouth to create a detailed image of your teeth and underlying bone structure. A tomographic x-ray produces images that are similar to a computerized tomography (CT) scan. This is an invaluable tool for planning your dental implant surgery. These images will allow us to assess the size, density, and health of bone tissue available to support the dental implant once it is placed. If the doctor determines that there is not an adequate supply of hard tissue, he may recommend a bone grafting procedure to strengthen the jaw before your implant surgery.
After the examination and prerequisite work is complete, the final step in your dental implant consultation will be to design your new smile. Factors like your restorative goals, budget, and aesthetic concerns will help determine which type of restoration and implant is right for you. Modern dental prosthetics use biocompatible materials that look very similar to your natural teeth. In fact, some restorations like Prettau® Anterior are so lifelike that they are virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
