We make every effort to minimize the amount of time you are in our office. Most treatments can be completed in one appointment. However, some treatments will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your brochure, referral slip and any X-rays if applicable
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- Your insurance card or any insurance information
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) and any allergies you may have.
We will take our own digital x-rays here in our office. However, if you have an x-ray from your general dentist, please bring it with you or have the x-rays emailed to [email protected]. Our digital x-rays are at no cost to you and are up to 90% less radiation than the average dental x-ray.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography – CBCT
We have the capability of performing a 3-dimensional scan of the tooth or teeth in question. The scan is not performed on every patient, but when necessary, this technology provides us with essential diagnostic information that can be obtained in a non-invasive way. During dental imaging, the CBCT scanner rotates around the patient’s head, obtaining up to 600 distinct images. The scanning software collects the data and reconstructs it into anatomical data that can then be manipulated and visualized with specialized software. Thus, each case is customized individually for the best care possible. There is a charge for the CBCT scan. Please contact our office for pricing.
