Implant Pre-op Appointment
If you have had a tooth removed and/or a bone graft procedure in preparation for a dental implant, please note that we will need to see you for this pre-operative re-evaluation appointment prior to your implant placement surgery. PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS NOT YOUR IMPLANT SURGERY APPOINTMENT!
This is a very important appointment that we schedule prior to your implant surgery so that we can best re-assess the healing of the bone in the area of the future implant prior to scheduling the surgery.
This is essentially a 20-30 minute records appointment with our registered dental assistants during which we do the following:
- Obtain a new 3D cone beam CT scan to evaluate the healing of the bone in the area of the future dental implant
- Obtain a digital intraoral impression of your teeth, which we will use in combination with the 3D CT scan to fabricate an accurate surgical guide for placement of your implant (if indicated)
- Schedule your implant placement surgery
- Give you new pre-operative instructions and prescriptions in preparation for the upcoming implant placement surgery
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO SPECIFIC PREPARATION NEEDED FOR THIS APPOINTMENT OTHER THAN BEING AWARE THAT IT IS NOT YOUR ACTUAL IMPLANT SURGERY APPOINTMENT!
We look forward to seeing you for this appointment and taking excellent care of you for your upcoming dental implant surgery!!
