Initial Consultation (PD)
At Dr Kanowitz Dental & Facial Aesthetics Surgery your comfort and care is our priority. Before your initial consultation, our friendly reception staff will arrange for you to complete a detailed medical history form. This ensures that Dr. Kanowitz is aware of your general health as this can have an impact on the condition of your teeth and gums and may affect medication or anesthetics given.
You will have the opportunity to discuss any dental concerns you may have and how you would like your teeth improved. A full oral assessment is then taken to accurately plan the treatments and provide recommendations that would best suit your long-term dental health.
During this examination, we will look into:
- Your teeth and bite.
- The original restorations, i.e. filling, crowns, bridges, veneers, etc.
- Your gums’ health and the bone structure around each tooth.
- Signs of oral cancer in your gums, tongue, throat, cheeks & lips
- Evaluation of Jaw joints
Dental X-rays to check for:
- Any decay inside or between the teeth
- Any cyst or abscess on the roots of your teeth.
- Positions of your root
- Signs of any bone loss
We will discuss the finding with you once the examination is complete. A treatment plan will be created with alternative solutions for you, including all the benefits and risks of each procedure and the costing. This will allow you to decide on an option based on your budget, comfort level and cosmetic requirements.
“There is always a risk for any surgical or invasive procedure. Hence, before proceeding, we recommend you to seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.”
