What You Can Expect From Your Consultation for Dental Implants in Easton, MD
An Evaluation of Your Oral Health
Dr. Louis will examine your teeth and gums to assess their health. He will also evaluate your bone density. All of these factors determine whether you are a good candidate for tooth replacement with dental implants or will require additional treatment to improve the health of your smile.
A Series of X-Rays
X-rays will give Dr. Louis a comprehensive picture of your mouth, including the location of nerves, sinus cavities, and existing bone volume. This is critical information needed to plan the placement of your dental implants.
Review of Your Medical and Dental History
Dr. Louis will discuss previous dental treatment and any past or existing medical conditions with you so that precautions can be taken before scheduling your tooth replacement surgery. Let Dr. Louis know if you are taking any prescription medications or supplements, as some may affect your surgery, such as blood thinners.
Discussion of Your Goals and Potential Treatment Options
You may have certain expectations for your smile that narrow the available treatment options. Dr. Louis will discuss the benefits and disadvantages of each tooth replacement method, helping you determine the ideal solution for your oral health.
