Our consultation has 3 important stages:
Information about the medical history of the patient
In this step, we will have a talk with our patient, during which the doctor tries to find out the exact reasons for which you need a dentist.
The questions that we will be asking you are:
- personal data: age, occupation, address
- personal medical history: general illnesses, allergies, current treatments
- dental history: past dental treatments or conditions
- information on current suffering: pain, other symptoms of the oral cavity
In this paragraph, we will tell you what is an effective examination of the oral cavity. Firstly, an examination of all teeth will be done. Secondly, we will examen the occlusion or „bite” relationships. Thirdly and most important the patient’s oral hygiene. In conclusion, we will exam all areas where you report pain, discomfort, swelling, bleeding, or other symptoms and signs.
They are indicated by our dentist following the objective examination to observe details that cannot be visualized with the naked eye.
The most important complementary examination is dental radiography.
Establishing the treatment plan
The treatment plan is established after the data form all examinations and according to the patient’s claims and situation.
Obviously, the more complex the case, the more complex the treatment plan will be.
This contains the recommended interventions, structured in phases, duration, and associated costs.
