Dental Promotions – Free Implant Consultation
Sunnyvale Dental Care is proud to present you with a unique Implant consultation special free offer that will interest you if you have a missing tooth, teeth or even wearing a complete denture. Dr. Antonious has been practicing dentistry for over three decades providing best quality oral health care.
In this Free Implant Consultation, we might either follow a simple look-see approach or a more comprehensive approach by examining the patient’s previous X-rays and CT scans, if available. The starting point for this complimentary free consultation is a review of the patient’s medical and dental history to understand any particular condition, allergies and medications that might affect implant placement procedure. You’ll also be asked to disclose your full medical history, your lifestyle choices and anything else which you think may affect the treatment. Dental implants aren’t for everyone and indeed for some people dental implants could be problematic, so it’s vital that you are a suitable candidate for a dental implant procedure and that your dentist makes sure to guide you in making the right decision.
What to Expect During Your Free Consultation
Your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums in addition to assessing your bone density. Patients with inadequate bone density may require a bone grafting procedure prior to placing the implants.
Your examination may involve X-rays and computer tomography scans (CT scans). The dentist will use the X-rays to determine the exact placement location for the implants.
Your dentist will question you about your oral hygiene routine, medical/oral health history, and personal habits that may influence the success of the implant procedure. Smoking, for example, may disqualify a patient, because tobacco use can negatively affect the successful integration of implants. This is primarily for you to get professional advice on this particular treatment. In the event that you have a tooth missing then the dentist can discuss all the tooth replacement options available to you such as a crown, bridge, partial denture or dental implant. The dentist should then give you a thorough description of the dental implant procedure. How they work, what the procedure entails, any possible side effects, and because it is after all a surgical procedure, with possible risks.
Understanding Your Implant Options
Based on the results of the examination, your doctor will recommend which type(s) of dental implant procedures are best suited for your unique oral healthcare needs. Although dental professionals began using implants over two decades ago, implant dentistry is constantly evolving and improving. Unlike dentures and fixed bridges, implants are highly versatile; they can adapt to the needs of the individual patient and be used to replace a single tooth, multiple missing teeth, or all of your teeth. Today’s patients also have numerous implant treatment options to choose from, including traditional implants, All-on-4 implants, implant supported dentures, and more. Your doctor will explain what each procedure entails and clarify the differences between them.
During the complimentary consultation, your doctor will describe the steps involved in your individual dental implant treatment plan. Some questions that may be addressed include the following:
- How long will the treatment last from start to finish?
- How many appointments are required?
- How long is the recovery period?
- What happens after the surgery? What immediate aftercare regimen do I need to follow?
- How do I care for my dental implants?
- What are my options for local anesthesia? Can you substitute sedation dentistry if necessary?
- What factors influence the overall cost of dental implants?
- Does my insurance cover implant procedures?
