What to Expect at a Dental Implant Consultation | Texas Center For Oral Surgery Teeth & Dental Implants

So, you’ve decided to try dental implants? Fantastic – these posts are sure to restore and beautify your grin! Even so, don’t get ahead of yourself; you can’t receive them at once. You’ll need to see your oral surgeon for a dental implant consultation first. That way, the implant provider will know you’re a good treatment candidate. As for the visit itself, you should expect various things from it. Read on to learn four key aspects of your implant consultation.

A Short Conversation

Firstly, the visit will start with a short conversation. This talk allows you to learn more about implant work and share what you expect from it.

For this discussion, the surgeon will ask you varied questions. They may inquire about your dental records, oral health history, past X-rays, etc. By doing so, they’ll assess your oral needs and see if dental implants suit you. The surgeon could also have you answer questions via paperwork as needed.

An Oral Exam/Evaluation

Once the talk is over, your surgeon will perform an oral exam. This step assesses your oral health and checks if your mouth can handle dental implants.

To be specific, the exam will look over your teeth, gums, and other mouth tissues. The surgeon could even include X-rays and 3D imaging as part of this process. (Such tools give them a better view of your mouth’s condition.) Based on their findings, they’ll know whether your jaw has the density to support dental implants. If your jawbone lacks sufficient tissue, you may need a bone graft.

Treatment Option Review

After the exam, your oral surgeon will lay out some treatment options for you. Dental implants will be among these choices if you’re a good candidate for them.

When you’ve made your choice, our team will draft a custom treatment plan suited to you. This plan will outline what to expect from your upcoming procedure. In particular, it’ll explain the treatment’s steps, timeframe, post-surgery recovery, and more.

A Brief Q&A

At the consultation’s end, you’ll have a chance to ask some relevant questions. Your oral surgeon offers this time to ensure your treatment goes well.

Remember, dentists (oral surgeons included) love to help their patients’ smiles thrive. That means they’ll happily address your dental concerns. So, don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have. You may end up learning whether your choice of surgeon is a good one.

Ultimately, a dental implant consultation is for your benefit. Book one with your dental provider so your new teeth work well!
