Why Your Long Island Dental Implant Specialist Needs to Examine You Before Pricing Out Your Treatment

Why Your Dentist Needs to Examine You Before Pricing


Just like you wouldn’t trust an insurance adjuster to assess the value of your vehicle claim before inspecting your car, you shouldn’t expect a dentist to price out your treatment before examining your mouth. Your initial dental consultation is a very important stepping stone for the rest of your treatment, so make sure you work with a professional who will do it properly. For a trusted top Long Island dental implant dentist with an abundance of 5 star reviews, visit Affordable Dental Implants Long Island.

What Is a Dental Consultation?

A dental consultation is a simple and non-invasive visit with a dental professional. It’s more about discussion than action because it gives your provider the opportunity to meet you, listen to your concerns, and introduce your potential treatment options. Before confirming the best option for you and what it all will entail… your dentist will need to actually look in your mouth!

Dental Exam

Ball park pricing may be given after a consult for a few dental services but most services will need the doctor to complete a comprehensive exam first so they can understand exactly what is going on in your mouth. For example: you have multiple missing teeth and are considering dental implants. You would like to know exactly how much a dental implant is… well… there are a lot of things to consider before you place an implant properly. How much healthy bone do you have? Is gum disease present? Are the adjacent teeth in good condition? Here you can view the potential cost of full mouth dental implants but the exam will give you your full treatment cost.

For teeth replacement options such as dental implants, Dr. Bral wants to ensure the best possible outcome. Only an x-ray can help Dr. Bral determine the condition of your jaw bone. The reason he needs to see if your bone is healthy is because it needs to be able to support an implant and if it has deteriorated too far… it will fail without a bone graft. That means more time and issues for you and possibly more money down the road if this isn’t addressed properly in the beginning.

We provide free consultations to help patients begin the important task of caring for their teeth and many insurance policies may cover the cost of exams.

Understand Your Treatment Options

Even if you already know your dental goals, you may not be aware of every treatment option available to reach your goals. Your dentist should walk you through each option and help you determine which makes the most sense in your unique circumstances.

Determine Your Eligibility or Limitations

You may have certain health conditions, medications, or oral complications that limit the type of treatments you can undergo. Your dentist will identify any possible limitations during your exam so that you can make necessary changes. For example, you might be advised to lower your blood pressure, undergo gum disease treatment, or stop taking blood thinners.

Make a Plan For Payment

Only after your prosthodontist or dentist has thoroughly evaluated your mouth and discussed your wishes and needs can they price out your procedure. Don’t worry if your dental procedure comes with a high price tag, our office offers dental financing to help you get the care you need without spending every last penny.

Many dental procedures are life changing. If you never show your smile, what is that costing you? If you believe your oral health has been an issue in getting that dream job, what is that costing you?
