As a patient centered practice, we strongly believe in individualized care. Accordingly, we have three types of examination to meet your needs:
- Implant evaluation
- The type of examination will depend on your needs as determined by your referring dentist. If self-referred, we will perform a comprehensive or implant examination as indicated.
In all cases, Dr. Cataldo will thoroughly review your medical history. A comprehensive and accurate medical history can provide important information about risk factors and may modify treatment recommendations. Necessary dental films (x-rays) will be taken if not available from your referring dentist.
Our practice utilizes digital radiographs. This state-of-the-art technology enhances our diagnostic ability and reduces radiation to the patient by 30-40% over conventional film based dental x-rays.
With all examinations, after treatment recommendations are made, Dr. Cataldo will contact your dentist by phone, letter, fax, or e-mail to ensure all parties are completely informed.
