How do I make the most out of my treatment consultation?

When patients are seen in our office for a consultation, we make it our responsibility to fully explain what treatment is needed and the cost. Here are the questions we can answer for you on a consultation appointment:

  1. Which treatment option is best for me?
  2. How much will the entire treatment plan cost?
  3. What are my payment options?
  4. Among the recommendations, which treatments are absolutely necessary now?

We can prioritize a treatment schedule to help you distinguish problems needing immediate attention from those that are less urgent. Often, treatment can be phased for your time and budget. Be sure that you understand the consequences of delaying treatment before you leave the office.

Should I take antibiotics before seeing a dentist?

Under most circumstances, you should pre-medicate with antibiotics if you have a heart murmur, heart disease, artificial joint replacement, or an organ transplant. Always check with your doctor regarding whether you should take antibiotics before dental procedures.

Can medication use affect my oral health?

Yes, medications can have negative oral health effects. Tell us about medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements that you are taking, including those you purchase over the counter. Dry mouth is often a side effect of medications, and some of the common problems associated with dry mouth include a constant sore throat, burning sensation, problems speaking, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness, or dry nasal passages. Left untreated, dry mouth can damage your teeth. Without adequate saliva to lubricate your mouth, wash away food, and neutralize the acids produced by plaque, extensive cavities can form. We will recommend various methods to restore moisture to your mouth. Sugar-free candy or gum stimulates saliva flow, and moisture can be replaced with artificial saliva and oral rinses.
