Consultation & Implant Process

Embarking on the journey to achieve a healthier smile is a personal and significant endeavor. Dr. Douglas Heller and Dr. Eric Beckman at Periodontal Associates recognize the importance of this journey, reflecting their commitment through a comprehensive, professional and patient-friendly consultation process. When you reach out to us at 303-755-4500, it is not merely an appointment; it marks the initial stride toward enhanced dental health. Our dedicated team is poised to assist you on this path, facilitating a consultation tailored to your convenience.

Upon your arrival, a warm welcome awaits, creating a familiar and friendly atmosphere to alleviate any potential anxieties. Collecting essential information about your dental and medical history, along with current medications, becomes pivotal. This data enables our periodontists to ensure your safety and optimize the success of potential implant procedures.
The subsequent stage involves a dental examination, leveraging cutting-edge technology such as intraoral scans and CBCT imaging. These advancements provide detailed insights into your teeth and jawbone, aiding in the assessment of oral health and facilitating digital planning for precise implant placement. Addressing any existing gum disease is crucial before proceeding with implant placement.

Following the examination, you engage in a consultation with either Dr. Heller or Dr. Beckman. This session allows you to express concerns, explore options and pose questions about dental implants. Subsequently, a personalized treatment plan is crafted, considering your oral health needs, examination results and personal preferences. This plan outlines the proposed procedure, estimates the timeline, and breaks down associated costs, aligning with our commitment to transparency. If gum disease is present, it becomes an initial focus in the treatment plan before proceeding with implant therapy.

Once you are comfortable with the proposed plan, the final step is scheduling the procedure. Our team assists in finding a date and time convenient for you, providing detailed pre-procedure instructions. With a patient-centered approach and the integration of state-of-the-art technology, our dental implant consultation ensures an optimal outcome. Choosing our office in Aurora, Colorado, guarantees an exceptional patient experience, given our expertise in dental implants and periodontal conditions, making us an ideal choice for those considering this transformative procedure.
