Consultation for Dental Implants in Westmont, IL
The dental exam will include a thorough examination and evaluation of your teeth and gums. Dr. Walsh will also need to assess your bone density. If he determines that bone density levels are too low, he may require a bone graft before implant placement.
Your consultation will also include x-rays and computer tomography scans (CT scans). Dr. Walsh will review these x-rays and scans in detail to determine where the dental implants need to be placed.
Dr. Walsh will need to know more about your current oral hygiene routine, medical and oral health history, and any personal habits that might affect the success rate of your implants. Smoking or tobacco use can negatively impact the success of your implant procedure.
