DentureCare and Implant Solutions – Rocky Mount NC
Evaluation for Dental Implants
Our philosophy at DentureCare & Implant Solutions is that we believe every patient should be educated about the entire implant treatment process, including all the many potential treatment options, risks and benefits, and so much more. Dental implants can be a foreign and intimidating concept, and the best way to make people comfortable with them is through thorough education. If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry may be the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Edward Jernigan and John C Jernigan and our team. For complex cases we often work in conjunction by a specialist (Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Periodontist, Prosthodontist) referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success. There is no commitment by doing a consultation, and is only to give you the education and information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not dental implant therapy is a good option for you. The more you know and understand about your implant treatment, the more confident you will be with the treatment you decide upon, and the less stressed and concerned you are come the day of the surgery and during the healing phase.
At your consult:
- Meet the doctor and the team
- Review your medial and dental history- please bring any pertinent information to appointment
- Obtain 3D x ray
- View educational video regarding dental implants
- Review dental implant treatment options regarding your specific case
- See models demonstrating potential treatment options
- Discuss any questions, concerns, and desires with doctor and the team
You can find comfort in the fact that the doctor spends immense time and thought planning out the procedure through pre-operative consultation and examination, study models, and virtual implant case and treatment planning on the computer using 3D x-ray. There is no better way to ensure the procedure goes accordingly and smoothly.
