The Mini Implant Consultation
Before considering mini dental implants in Sacramento, CA as a method of teeth replacement, it is important to understand exactly what the treatment entails. This is why Dr. Andrea Joy Smith requires patients to come in for a short consultation so they can be informed on the details and long term effects of the treatment. The consultation usually consists of three different parts:
• Question and Answer
What Can I Expect During The Appointment?
During the appointment, your doctor will:
- Conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums.
- Perform a complete set of x-rays to identify any underlying bone issues.
- Discuss your treatment options with you.
- Review dental implant options.
- Answer your questions.
The examination is where we will assess the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw bone to ensure you are able to support this type of teeth replacement. If it is determined that your bone and gum tissue has suffered because of injury or gum disease, we will need to treat these conditions first. This usually involves some type of gum disease treatment followed by a bone or tissue graft.
During the second part of the exam, Dr. Andrea Joy Smith will need to determine the exact location for your teeth replacement. This is done by using x-rays and computer scans to find the areas with the highest bone density.
Following the exam, Dr. Andrea Joy Smith will ask a series of questions regarding your oral health regimen and any lifestyle habits that may affect the success of the procedure. For example, patients who have poor oral hygiene or who use tobacco products generally do not have as much success with dental implants for teeth replacement.
Question and Answer
The final portion of the consultation is dedicated to addressing any concerns you might have about the procedure. Dr. Andrea Joy Smith will answer any questions you have regarding:
• The length of the procedure
• The length of the recovery period
• What type of maintenance is required
• The cost of teeth replacement
• Sedation or anesthetic concerns
• Insurance issues
When teeth are lost, it is vital to replace them as soon as possible. To schedule your mini dental implants consultation in Sacramento, CA , contact the office of Dr. Andrea Joy Smith, Bent Tree Dental today!
