Your Dental Implant Consultation in San Diego, CA

If you have a tooth infection or are experiencing any signs and symptoms of gum disease, you may need to have treatment for periodontal disease before implant placement. Your consultation will include:

Examination

Drs. Huamán and Flores will perform an oral examination of your teeth and gums to determine whether there are any signs of a tooth infection and to assess bone density levels. If you do not have enough bone tissue, you may need a bone graft before implant placement.

X-Rays

Your examination will involve x-rays and computer tomography scans (CT scans). Dr. Huamán and Dr. Flores will review these x-rays and scans to determine precisely where your implants need to be placed.

Discussion

You will need to share information about your oral hygiene routine, medical history, oral health history, and any personal habits that may affect the success of dental implants. If you are a smoker or use tobacco products regularly, you may not be a candidate for implants.

Review of Dental Implant Options

Drs. Huamán and Flores will recommend a dental implant procedure that is the best match for your needs. Implants are highly versatile and can replace a single missing tooth or several missing teeth. Patients today have many implant treatment options available, including traditional implants, implant supported dentures, and All-on-4® implants.
