What is involved in an Implant Evaluation?

An implant evaluation can require up to one hour. If needed, dental films and study models are obtained. A Panorex radiograph is often taken to provide a greater viewing area than conventional dental films. When necessary, Dr. Cataldo will recommend a CT scan. He then uses a highly-sophisticated computer program called Simplant. Simplant allows Dr. Cataldo to analyze CT scan data directly on the computer in 3-D and simulate implant placement before any treatment takes place. If possible, treatment recommendations, number of visits, fees and time requirements will be discussed at this visit.
