Dental Implant Consultation - Freedom & Watsonville, CA
Many adults with missing teeth want to learn information about teeth replacement cost and what to expect from their procedure. When you set up a consultation with Dr. Andres F. Herrera, an oral surgeon for Salinas and Freedom, CA, you can find out more about teeth replacement cost, benefits, and how to take care of your Nobel BioCare dental implants. Here is what you can expect during your consultation:
Dr. Herrera will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, and also assess your bone density. Patients with inadequate bone density may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure before implant placement. Dr. Herrera will discuss all of this during your consultation.
Your exam will likely involve x-rays and computer tomography scans (CT scans). Dr. Herrera will use these x-rays and scans to determine the exact location for the placement of your implants.
Dr. Herrera will need to learn more about your oral hygiene routine, medical and oral health history, and any personal habits that might affect the outcome of your procedure. For example, smoking can have a serious impact on the success rate of dental implants.
Reviewing Implant Options
Based on the results of your exam, Dr. Herrera will recommend the types of dental implant procedures that are best suited for your needs. Implant dentistry is constantly evolving and improving, and Dr. Herrera can tailor treatment to each patient to replace a single tooth, multiple missing teeth, or all of your teeth. Patients have several implant treatment options to choose from, including traditional dental implants, All-on-4™ implants, implant supported dentures, and more. Dr. Herrera will explain what each procedure entails during your consultation.
You will also have the opportunity to discuss teeth replacement cost and ask other questions related to your procedure during your consultation. Dr. Herrera can address the following:
• How long will my procedure take?
• How many appointments will I need?
• What is the recovery period like?
• How should I care for my implants?
• Will I need anesthesia?
• What factors influence my teeth replacement cost?
