Patients experiencing pain are seen the same day they call our office. The referring doctor will receive a phone call when the patient is seen. This way, we may discuss therapeutic options and form an appropriate treatment plan together.
Whenever possible, implants are placed at the time teeth are extracted. This is especially true in the maxillary anterior region. This offers the advantages of fewer surgical visits, minimization of bone resorption, and shortening of the overall course of therapy.
Immediate Temporization In The Maxillary Anterior Region
Implants can often be placed and restored with an immediate temporary crown. In addition to the benefits of immediate implant placement, an immediate temporary crown helps to support the soft tissues and maintain the gingival contour and contributes significantly to maximization of aesthetic treatment outcomes.
Communication With The Referring Doctor
✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮
If needed, we'll call when the patient is in the chair to discuss treatment options. Consultation letters regarding our findings are usually sent the same day the patient is seen for his or her initial exam. Additional letters include updates and notifications of completed treatment.
If the treatment is complex, we'll coordinate treatment and treatment planning with all involved providers by the most efficient means possible.
We exclusively utilize the highest-quality regenerative materials and implants, whose efficacies have been demonstrated in peer-reviewed scientific journals. The two implant systems we use most are Straumann® and Nobel Biocare®.
Although we never perform implant restorative therapy, we remain intimately involved in all aspects of care, so as to better assist both the referring doctor and the patient.
We will spend as much time as necessary with the referring doctor examining available treatment options and formulating both ideal and alternative treatment plans.
We'll fabricate surgical guides if necessary.
We stock all implant restorative parts that may be needed by the restorative dentist. The referring doctor always has the option of getting the parts from us.
