Consultation: What to Expect

dental implant consultation services in Portland OR and Vancouver WA

Once you’ve made the decision to get your dental implants, the first thing you need to do is have a consultation with your dental professional. During this visit, we will cover a variety of topics in order to help you fully comprehend the process and answer any questions you may have.¬†Your treatment will always begin with a dental implant consultation to ensure that the process goes smoothly and is tailor-made for your needs.

Step 1: Free Dental Implant Consultation

During the consultation, we will observe and discuss the status of your oral health, oral health goals, medical history, and our convenient payment options. We will also propose our recommendations for your particular situation, as there is often more than one way to go about achieving your desired goals.

Another important step in the consultation is conducting digital imaging to further our understanding of your case in order to provide the most comprehensive and accurate evaluation possible. We will provide you with highly personalized care to give you a smile that suits the individual you are both in appearance and personality. Our priority is your absolute satisfaction and confidence in your new smile.

Step 2: Discussion of Oral Health Goals

This initial consultation is also your chance to ask questions or speak of any concerns you may have. No question or concern is too minor, and our goal is to help you feel as comfortable about your upcoming procedures as possible. We want to know about your goals for your mouth and your oral care to ensure that everyone is on the same page. Together, we will come up with an individualized plan to improve the beauty and functionality of your mouth. Our priority is ensuring we can provide you with a lifelong plan to maintain good oral health, making this consultation the perfect time to have a comprehensive discussion about your dental health.

Step 3: Complete Dental Examination and Fabrication of Prosthesis

Before the dental implant procedure can take place, we will perform a thorough dental examination. The purpose of this examination is to inspect the areas of the mouth where the implants will be placed. This includes discerning the condition and density of your jawbone, which is important as the bone in the jaw is the support for the implant. This is done with standard radiographs and cone beam CT scans if needed. In the case that you do not have enough bone to support dental implants, we may suggest additional procedures to enhance the jawbone and create the most ideal conditions to utilize a new implant. Impressions will be taken of your gums and teeth at this time, and measurements made for the fabrication of your new teeth.
