What to Expect During Implant Consultation?
Before diving into the nitty-gritty of the dental implant process, We will initiate an introductory conversation to understand your needs, goals, and concerns. We will also review your records, x-rays, and impressions and inquire about your medical history. It is the perfect opportunity to discuss your desired results! Being transparent with us can help us develop a treatment plan that best suits your smile.
EVALUATION, XRAYS, AND 3D IMAGING
A thorough oral examination will be performed to assess your teeth, gums, and overall health. X-rays and 3D imaging are essential as they allow the dentists to get a full view of what’s going on in your mouth. We will also evaluate your bone density to ensure there’s enough healthy bone for successful implantation. Otherwise, patients with inadequate bone volume may require a bone graft before a dental implant.
We will share a recommended treatment plan and discuss various implant options, details on the implant surgery, timeframe, and post-op instructions. Once all the details are worked out, the dentist will explain what your next steps will be.
ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS
At the end of your dental implant consultation, you will have an opportunity to ask any final questions and address any concerns. Don’t forget to use this time wisely! You must end your visit feeling confident about your decision to move forward with treatment. Plus, you can use this time to ask our team questions about themselves, ensuring they have the skills and knowledge you can trust.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Dental implants are a surgical procedure that helps replace one or more missing teeth. The implant is a titanium screw that is embedded in the jawbone, and this acts as a support for a false tooth, bridge, or denture. There are several reasons why you might need dental implants. For example, if you have a badly broken down or cracked tooth, it may not be possible to save it with a filling or crown and will need to be extracted. In this case, an implant can be used to support a new tooth.
Similarly, if you are missing one or more teeth, an implant can be used as a replacement. Dental implants can also be used to provide support for loose dentures or bridges. In cases where there has been bone loss in the jaw, implants can help provide structure and support, preventing the face from sinking in. Ultimately, dental implants provide a durable and long-lasting replacement option for those who are missing teeth.
Dental implants are recommended to restore missing teeth because they are the only replacement closest to natural teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, which rely on surrounding teeth for support, implants are embedded directly into the jawbone like natural teeth. This provides a strong foundation for artificial teeth and can help preserve the face’s natural shape. In addition, implants are designed to closely resemble natural teeth in terms of appearance and function. They are made from biocompatible materials that fuse with the jawbone and can be used to support a single tooth, a bridge, or even a complete set of dentures. As a result, dental implants offer patients a long-term replacement that can help them regain their confidence and smiles.
In addition to providing a tooth replacement that looks and feels like a natural tooth, dental implants have other benefits.
- Restores speech and chewing function
By anchoring artificial teeth directly into the jawbone, implants provide strong and stable support for chewing and speaking.
- Prevents further bone loss
Implants help prevent bone loss by stimulating the jawbone and keeping it healthy.
- Stabilizes adjacent teeth
Since implants replace the missing teeth, it prevents the adjacent teeth from shifting into the space left by a missing tooth.
- Resistant to tooth decay
Dental implants are much more resistant to tooth decay than natural teeth. This is because dental implants are made of titanium, which is not susceptible to decay.
- Prevents facial sagging
When teeth are lost, the face begins to sag due to a lack of support. Dental implants support the cheeks and lips and help keep the face looking young and healthy.
With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective long-term option.
Most health funds will offer some level of cover for dental implants. However, checking with your individual fund to see what level of cover they provide is important. Some funds may only cover a portion of the cost, while others may cover the entire cost. In addition, some fund providers may have a list of preferred providers you must use to receive cover.
Therefore, it is important to do your research before you commit to any treatment, and contact your health fund provider to know your level of cover. By taking the time to understand your health fund’s coverage, you can be sure that you are getting the best possible value for your money.
