All On 4 dental implants offer New Jersey residents that solution. So, just how can you prepare for your initial consultation with your dental implant specialist? Preparing For Your First Consultation
“There’s really not much first time patients need to do other than arrive for their appointment,” says an experienced New Jersey dental implants specialist. “What does help both us and the patient is for them to sit down and list the problems they have been experiencing with their failing teeth or bridges and/or current teeth replacement technology, be it a partial or full removable denture. This helps us to understand the areas of improvement they wish to be addressed as well as what their concerns are regarding treatment. Of course we will explain the benefits of All On 4 dental implants as a standard component of a patient’s initial consultation with us, but it helps for them to understand exactly how their problems will be addressed.
“It is also useful and even important for the patient to provide us with a list of any medications they might be on and we’ll require a detailed medical history to ensure the utmost safety of the procedure we recommend,” explains the All On 4 dental implants specialist. “If you are unsure of anything, you can give your treating medical physician a call or, alternatively, we will should we believe a medication or condition might cause complications or challenges.” “Either way, it just really helps – especially in the addressing of any anxieties – for patients to understand what to expect and just how treatment can help them lead a much better and healthier life.” What You Can Expect From Your First Consultation “We first sit down with patients and discuss their problems and medical history in detail,” says the New Jersey dental implants specialist. “We then perform a thorough examination of their teeth and gums and, via the use of a 3D CT scan, the underlying jawbone. If a patient is determined to be a candidate for All On 4 dental implants, and most patients are, we will discuss the treatment in detail before making a mold of their upper and/or lower dental arch. This will be used to fabricate them a new set/s of teeth, which will be attached to dental implants after surgery. After the initial work up is complete, a date will be set for their surgery and they can then return home.” “We always encourage our patients to ask any question they may have about All On 4 dental implants. You know what they say... the only stupid question is the unasked question!”
