Your First Visit with Us as a New Patient
We recommend reserving approximately an hour and a half for your first visit with us. After you arrive, we’ll have a few forms for you to fill out. Then, one of our hygienists will discuss your concerns and screen for conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease. A series of x-rays and intraoral photographs will also be taken for diagnostic purposes. One of our family dentists will then meet with you to evaluate your dental health and discuss the findings with you. During your exam, you can see the same things that we do, thanks to our in-room monitors.
If You Need Treatment
We strive to begin dental treatment the very same day, if possible. Whether it’s a preventive cleaning, deep cleaning, or just getting you out of pain – we won’t send you on your way until we’re able to address your primary concern. If any abnormal tissues are noted during your oral cancer screening, we will perform a brush biopsy at that visit as well.
How much do dental implants cost?
The total cost of your implant treatment will depend on the number of implants needed, and the type of prosthesis that you are having placed (such as a denture vs. an individual crown.) The need for grafting or sinus lifts can impact the overall cost of treatment as well. We are happy to provide you with a detailed, itemized treatment plan and complimentary implant consultation to give you a better idea of overall costs.
How long will dental implants take?
Depending on the type and number of implants that you’re getting, some treatments such as In Sequence can be completed from start to finish in just one visit.
Will implants work for me? Am I a candidate for implants?
If you’re considering dental implants, we invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation or reserve a slot at our monthly implant seminar for more information.
How do dental implants work?
Implants are prosthetic tooth roots that are anchored into sockets of your jaw, just like natural teeth. They’re so strong, we can replace anything from a single tooth to all of your teeth at one time.
Do implants hurt?
Surprisingly, the dental implant treatment process is much more comfortable than you might expect. Thanks to our 3D CT scanner, the computer guidance process makes your treatment quicker and less invasive than ever.
