Diagnostics & planning
Your first visit will be used to a diagnostic examination. Often we will follow up with an x-ray scan, using bitewing radiography technique to provide vital information. In some cases, we will then do a closer examination of a single tooth or molar. Also, we will complete a medical questionnaire, which will obviously remain completely confidential as part of your medical file with us. It is very important for us to remain updated on your allergies, illnesses and ailments. Also, we need to know which medication you take, in order to prevent complications during treatment and to adjust treatment accordingly. Any dental discomfort, requests or questions will be handled and accommodated, and in complex cases we will write a detailed treatment plan and if possible suggest any alternative strategies. In doing so, of course we will closely consider the financial consequences and adjust according to your budget. Our treatment plan will be put in writing for you to review, and might need your informed consent before executing the plan.
