7 Things to Expect From Your Dental Implant Consultation
by Dr. Michael Popp on Mar 18, 2018

Want to know whether or not you’re a good candidate for a dental implant procedure? Here’s what to expect from your consultation with the dentist. 


Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed replacement teeth. Compared to dentures and bridges, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for patients who suffer from missing teeth, or chronic dental problems.

They have many benefits. They:

  • can improve patients' overall quality of life.
  • they can make you look years younger.
  • they allow you to enjoy a healthy, nutritious diet.
  • they have a natural look and feel.
  • they provide chewing and speaking ability.

Am I a Candidate For Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an innovative, safe and very effective cosmetic treatment for many patients. HOWEVER, there are certain factors that could affect your suitability, including:

  • inadequate bone in the treatment area.
  • presence of periodontal disease.
  • bite complications.
  • whether or not you smoke.
  • whether or not you’re on medications such as blood thinners.

The best way to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants is by booking a consultation with your local dentist. They will assess your medical history, oral health, and dental needs to best determine whether this is the right choice for you.

What to Expect From a Dental Implant Consultation

One of the best ways to determine whether or not this cosmetic treatment is right for you, is to book a consultation with your family dentist. But before you do, here’s what to expect from that one-on-one meeting:

  1. You’ll be encouraged to talk about your goals and expectations regarding the dental implant procedure. The dentist may then provide you with the best treatment options for your specific needs.
  2. Your medical and dental history will be explored to give the dentist a better idea of your overall dental and medical condition.
  3. Digital photos, X-rays, or CT scans of your teeth, jaws, and oral cavity will be taken, as part of the assessment phase of your dental implant treatment.
  4. You will be provided with a comprehensive dental implant treatment plan which includes information regarding your current dental health status, and the dental implant treatment option that will best suit your needs.
  5. On the actual day of surgery, you will be prepared for the dental implant placement which may include tooth extractions and jaw modifications.
  6. You may be asked to come back after two weeks so that the dentist can check your dental implants and the teeth restorations.
  7. Any concerns that you may have with your brand new smile can be raised at this point, so modifications - if any- can be done.
