We schedule a one hour appointment for your new patient examination and consultation. This allows sufficient time to complete an examination, review x-rays if available, and discuss treatment options that address your concerns and oral condition. Sometimes a follow-up consultation is necessary to take additional x-rays or to further discuss solutions to a complex problem. There is no charge for additional consultations, only for x-rays or diagnostic models if needed.
Your general dentist may refer you for a specific procedure. We will gladly coordinate treatment with your dentist. It is important that you maintain a relationship with your general dentist. If you have been referred by an oral surgeon, or will be referred to one, a joint consultation is often arranged to review treatment options and to address questions that you may have with both the prosthodontist and surgeon present.
Prosthodontic treatment often requires multiple visits. Patients are scheduled in a manner that allows for us to complete treatment for patients under care, before committing to new treatment. Dr. Emerson is involved with all phases of laboratory procedures. We have excellent resources for crowns, bridges, and for complex implant restorations. Everything that will be removable (or removable only by a dentist) is made in the laboratory by Dr. Emerson.
