Let’s say you’ve done your research and you decide that dental implants are best for your missing teeth. Fantastic! The next step then is to consult with Dr. Wagner about your dental needs, whether it’s dental implants, implants with bone grafting, and more. Read along as we go over ideal candidates and the consultation for patients in Chambersburg, PA at The Wagner Centre.
So, you may be asking yourself, what exactly goes on during this consultation? First things first, Dr. Wagner will determine if dental implants are right for you, taking into account how many teeth you’re missing, where they’re located in your mouth, and how supportive your jawbone or gum tissues are. The next step is to also look at the condition of your mouth, keeping an eye out for warning signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and more. These conditions could threaten the healing process of your implant, so it’s vital to address them as soon as possible. Lastly, Dr. Wagner will take scans and models of your mouth to take a closer look at your jawbone volume and ensure that it’s ready to handle implants.
