What to expect at a High Dental Implants Melbourne consultation
At your initial assessment consultation here with us at High Dental Implants Melbourne, you have the chance to speak with us regarding any concerns or questions that you undoubtedly have regarding your current situation and what you should expect throughout the treatment and immediately afterwards.
It is also a chance for you to tell us what your desired outcome would be following the treatment, so that we are able to align ourselves in order to meet your goals. We enjoy hearing what our patients have to say and discussing with them all of the treatment options that are available to them in helping them reach those smile goals.
We will always speak openly, honestly and candidly with all of our patients, giving you realistic expectations, and recommendations going forward, giving any alternative options that are available to you, as well as the advantages and potential risks that every option carries with it. This allows you to make the most informed decision for what you believe to be the best path going forward in terms of your oral health and smile.
This treatment planning stage is an immensely important aspect of the entire procedure as it enables us to understand what you are hoping to achieve and allows us to determine what we can do for you along with what our limitations may be.
What is included in the initial assessment?
At your first visit to us at High Dental Implants Melbourne, we will go through a full medical and dental history with you so that we can gain the background information to assess whether you are suitable for this procedure.
We then perform a very thorough intra and extraoral examination which may include a series of photos, impressions, models and wax ups. We need all of this information to assess the health of your mouth, your gums and your existing teeth. The models and moulds give us an understanding of how your teeth fit together in order to make a well fitted and comfortable crown that will cause you no discomfort when you bite down on it and the X-rays allow us to determine the density of your bone in the jaw.
Often, a CT scan is required as well so that we can more accurately plan and assess your case. We can thankfully do this onsite at the same appointment, so there is no need for delays whilst you book an appointment at a hospital for such a scan.
After we gather all of the necessary information at High Dental Implants Melbourne, we are able to discuss with you our findings and outline a treatment plan that will go over what we expect to be the necessary stages of your treatment, what the cost will be and any other additional recommendations that we may have for you at the time.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
