Consulting With Your Implant Dentist in Hartford, CT

Before you receive your dental implants in Hartford, CT, you will be asked to come in for a short consultation with Dr. David Edelson. This is done so that we can take x-rays to help plot the location of your implants as well as discuss your expectations. You will be given a chance to voice any questions or concerns that you may have.. In order to make the most of this time, we ask that you do a little research beforehand to help you understand the basics of the procedure. To help you prepare, we have put together a brief summary of what you can expect from your meeting with your implant dentist.

Examination

The first thing we will do is examine your mouth and jaw to assess your level of oral health. This includes taking x-rays and computer scans of your jaw bone so that we can identify the areas of highest bone density and plot the best location for your implants.

After the scans and x-rays have been made, you and your implant dentist will discuss your oral hygiene routine as well as your history of oral and general health. This will help us identify any factors that may affect the success of your procedure. For example, patients who have certain medical conditions or use tobacco products often have low success rates with dental implants.

Discussing Your Options

Based on the results of your x-rays and evaluation, your implant dentist will discuss your options and go over the benefits of each method. For example, patients with low bone density often benefit the greatest from All-on-4™ implants, while patients with higher density can receive multiple individual implants.

Question and Answer

Finally, you will be given a chance to ask your implant dentist any specific questions that you may have about the procedure. This can include questions relating to:

  • Length of the recovery period
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Cost
  • Anesthesia
  • Post-operative care

In order to make the most out of this opportunity, we recommend doing some research beforehand to help you develop specific questions. To schedule your consultation for dental implants in Hartford, CT, contact Dr. Edelson today!
