At the initial appointment we will have a chance to get acquainted, and will determine if there is a need for prosthodontic treatment. Many of your questions can be answered at this appointment, and we encourage you to ask about any of your concerns.
Depending on your specific problems, additional diagnostic information may be required to formulate a treatment plan. This may include:
- Full mouth X rays
- Panoramic X ray
- Diagnostic casts
- Diagnostic photographs
- Facebow registration
- Bite registration
- Occlusal analysis mounted case
- I-Cat CT 3D scan
The specific procedures and fees will be discussed before proceeding with the records.
After all the information is collected a second complimentary appointment will be arranged to review examination results, discuss treatment plan options, and fees.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
