The Treatment Phase

  • Consultation: During this stage, the patient and dentist meet for the first time. The patient imparts his main concerns and the recommended treatment will be discussed. There could be a series of consultation sessions that come prior to treatment procedure.

  • Oral Examination: This is the most basic diagnostic procedure where the patient’s mouth is initially examined by a dental mirror for the dentist to assess the condition of teeth, gums, tongue, floor of the mouth, palate and other structures. This will also will involve palpation, percussion and visual comparison to normal conditions.

  • Dental Photographs: The more refined representations of what is seen clinically can be recorded by taking photographs.

  • Dental Impression and Casting: A three-dimensional representation of the mouth of the patient that is obtained by taking an impression or mould of the upper and lower jaw and the production of a stone cast or model.

  • Dental Radiographs: A two-dimensional representation of the teeth and other structures of the mouth, which gives a better picture of what is unseen during clinical examinations.

  • Dental CT Scans: A more definitive picture of the patient’s case; it gives a three-dimensional picture of the teeth and the bone, presented in a series of slides, taken at certain depths.

By utilizing what is provided, a proper treatment planning will be given and when there are more than one treatment options available, you will have the ultimate choice after all the conditions have been presented thoroughly.
