The dentist will conduct a complete examination and review your dental and medical health. This involves diagnostic tests like digital x-rays. Your dentist will also check your teeth, mouth, and jawbone and assess if the treatment is right for you. Upon confirmation, a personalized treatment plan for you based on your budget and preferences will be drawn up and the dentist will also discuss the process, the type of material to be used, cost, and other details with you. He’ll also recommend if an additional treatment like bone surgery is needed.
