As every patient has individual expectations and needs the first element is patient evaluation. The benefits and risks of implants should be fully explained to the patient along with the procedures involved.
Should the patient prove suitable after the necessary dental/medical history is taken and all contraindications investigated then impressions can be taken for pre-operative diagnostics and treatment planning. The cast study models will be articulated and a diagnostic wax-up produced. This gives a good indication of where the implants could be placed and offers the opportunity for the patient to see how their case is being planned.
A treatment plan costing can also be produced at this time which shows the laboratory costing for the proposed implant work.
This will include all pre-operative diagnostics, temporary denture/bridge- work, the chosen restoration and all laboratory implant components. It is a comprehensive and itemised plan which can be used to assist with the costing for your patient.
