Dr. Ekstein begins with an evaluation of your oral health at the initial consultation. Once he fully understands your dental and medical history and personally examines you he will take time to explain his recommendations in great detail. Dr. Ekstein is a seasoned implant veteran so you can count on getting an expert’s opinion the first time. The timelines for all possible treatment options will be outlined after the examination. Dr. Ekstein determines all the factors of your dental implant needs and customizes the best treatment plan for you.
Once the oral surgery team concludes there will be a resting period. At this time you will be treated with low-level application of Cold Laser. This treatment will help to reduce inflammation and promote rapid recovery.
Now that your temporary dental bridge is in place you may leave the office as soon as you are ready. The first follow-up appointment will be scheduled to occur about 1 to 2 weeks out from the implant procedure date.
At your first follow-up appointment after implant surgery Dr. Ekstein will carefully examine the surgical locations in your mouth to make sure that you are properly healing. If Dr. Ekstein feels that you should come back in for additional follow-ups prior to receiving your permanent teeth he will discuss the particulars with you at this time and get you scheduled on a day and time that is convenient for you.
