Complimentary Initial Implant Consultation
Your complimentary implant consultation at Creekside dental clinic is an appointment to meet with your dentist, dental assistant and treatment coordinator to learn your individual treatment options. This initial visit is a chance for you to meet our dental team and for us to learn about you and your needs.
We can provide you with an initial estimate at this complimentary visit to help you make a decision on a particular treatment option. If you and your dentist feel you are a candidate for a dental implant treatment procedure a second visit will be scheduled at your request to gather information for a full treatment work up including a 3-D Cone Beam CT (specialized diagnostic imaging), diagnostic dental models, any other x-rays deemed necessary, intra oral exam and a medical history review.
From this second visit you will be provided with an accurate estimate for your signature for your treatment plan. This will then be a fixed price with no hidden costs. The cost of the full diagnostic work up attained at the second visit has a cost of $300.00 which will be credited towards the final bill if you choose to proceed with treatment.
Creekside Dental Clinic placed its first implant over 15 years ago. Since then we have successfully placed and restored hundreds of various designed implant treatments.
How Will I Know if I Have Enough Bone for Implants?
By using a combination dental x-rays, in office cone beam ct scan and physical examination, your bone density and volume can be assessed and information about nearby anatomical structures to avoid (such as nerves) can also be gathered.
The alternatives for replacing missing teeth include dentures and bridges. However, there are various bone-grafting and tissue-regeneration procedures that can be carried out to enable treatment with dental implants.
If you need to replace missing teeth at the back of the upper jaw, a sinus augmentation, whereby new bone in the sinus is created, can increase the height of the bone available for the placement of implants in this area.
This is where a piece of bone is taken from somewhere else and secured over an area that is deficient on bone: over time, the newly placed bone will fuse with the underlying bone creating a better environment for an implant to be placed.
The best source of bone for your graft is your own bone tissue from elsewhere in the body. Bone can be grafted from the chin, the back of the lower jaw, the hip and the tibia. Bone taken from your own body is the most viable and has faster healing times when compared to alternatives.
In many cases, a combination of artificial bone substitutes and your natural bone is used. In any bone grafting procedure, the grafted bone provides an anchor and stimulus for the existing bone to grow onto, eventually providing an environment suitable for the placement of implants.
