Your initial visit consists of meeting with Dr.Devi to understand your concerns and treatment goal.
According to Dr.Devi, the most important aspects in dental implant treatment planning are:
Evaluation of patients medical history to assess risk factor
Presence of adequate foundation bone
How many teeth are missing, Is soft tissue missing as well
Does patient need facial support with Implant restoration
What kind of restoration is the most appropriate, conservative and affordable for the situation presented
Finding the right treatment for every patient requires careful evaluation of multiple factors as every patient’s mouth condition is very unique. It is definitely not about filling the hole with an implant restoration. CT scans are frequently used to study the quantity and quality of bone and this will help in figuring out the size and number of implants needed in a particular situation. In some instances the foundation needs to be built first before an implant can be placed. Based on the clinical exam, treatment plan will be sequenced and discussed with patient.
