First and foremost, we need to understand you and your individual needs. Only then can we gather our records. A clinical exam, digital 3D CT and x rays, teeth pictures, full arch radiographs, computerised joint records and a smile assessment and teeth charting. Then you can choose what’s right for you.
It’s now time to review all your options so you can choose what’s best for you. Our goal is for you to understand the issues and a full treatment plan with multiple choices will be presented, and we’ll use computer images plus demonstration models. Options, costs and risks of treatment need to be balanced against benefits until a clear choice can be made that suits you best.
Some people still like to leave it up to us, but we still prefer you to understand why we made our final recommendations.
We don’t want to do anything until you’ve decided we’re right for you.
