Your first visit will consist of a consultation explaining diagnosis and treatment options.
Dr. Patty starts with a comprehensive examination including the jaw, joints, soft tissues and teeth, and complete the process with a thorough screening for oral cancer.
The examination is followed by a treatment conference where Dr. Patty or his Implant Treatment Coordinator will provide all options for treatment, identify the patient's needs and goals, and answer any questions.
Simple procedures can sometimes be performed the same day. Most procedures and patients with a complex medical history will require a second appointment to provide treatment.
