Do You Know You Have Serious Issues?

Know You Have Serious Issues?

Your body is a mysterious and complex masterpiece. When all of its systems work together in harmony, you feel healthy, vivacious, and happy. All of us strive to live high-quality days full of joy and energy. However, when parts of our bodies are not functioning as they should, the effects may trickle down to other systems, ultimately causing more serious health concerns, as well as poor quality of life and a lack of energy.

In most cases, our bodies alert us when something’s wrong. This is true of the mouth and the entire oral system. We urge you never to ignore a toothache or jaw pain until it becomes unbearable, since at that point we may not be able to preserve the tooth.

If you have a serious problem, don’t delay treatment! Call Family Dentistry & Aesthetics in Fort Wayne, IN, at 260-432-0561 for a consultation with one of our competent, compassionate dentists. We want to help you enjoy life with comfort and confidence.

Complimentary Initial Consultation

We understand that sometimes embarrassment, guilt, and fear keep people away from the dentist, especially when major problems exist. Over time, the problems may intensify, and so does the embarrassment. We want everyone to know that we never judge our patients for their oral health problems and have helped hundreds of people get back on track with their dental health. We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation, in which the doctor will take time to listen to your concerns and desires, understand your goals, and explain possible ways to address the issues that are most important to you. This visit allows you to meet the dentist and our caring team, because we know that once you experience Family Dentistry and Aesthetics personally, you will know you are in the right place. We are compassionate experts who will evaluate the big picture of your oral health before developing a strategic, practical treatment plan that will deliver the comfort, function, and aesthetics you want.

Comprehensive Examination

In most cases, we will schedule a patient for a comprehensive clinical examination, following the introductory consultation. At this appointment, we will ask you questions, evaluate your oral health, and gather all information needed to customize your treatment plan. Adequate time will be allotted for us to have a thorough discussion and answer all of your questions.

Although early intervention for dental issues is ideal, it is never too late to seek treatment for oral health concerns. You might feel like your situation is hopeless, but there is always something we can do. With full mouth restoration, we address all levels and facets of oral health issues, from the foundation outward. Phased dentistry involves breaking up many dental procedures into smaller segments to lessen physical discomfort, financial strain, and scheduling conflicts. A phased treatment plan for full mouth restoration may involve any dental oral health procedure.

To begin planning your treatments, the dentist will talk with you; examine your mouth, jaws, head, neck, and existing dental work; order x-rays; and possibly make impressions of your mouth. He will also screen for oral cancer and TMJ disorder, and in some cases a patient may need a 3D x-ray so the doctor can evaluate teeth roots, bone density, and the position of nerves in the jaw. You should be prepared to provide a full account of your current medications, as well as your medical and dental history.

Comprehensive Treatment Plan

After the dentist has full view of your oral health, past and present, he can present you with his findings and treatment options. Together, you and the dentist can determine your immediate priorities, then create a treatment plan that will address all of your oral issues. Your treatment plan will leave you feeling more confident in your future health and appearance.

It is important to us that you understand your treatment plan, so please feel comfortable asking any and all questions. The more you understand about your treatments, the more confident you’ll feel.  It is important to us that you are informed of all your options, so you can make the best decisions for your circumstances.

You will also be informed of the cost of your treatment plan. We offer several flexible payment options, to make the financial aspect of dentistry possible and convenient for you. In addition, our insurance experts will work with your provider to ensure that you receive maximum compensation from your insurance plan.
