The Importance of a Dental Treatment Plan
At the Placerville Dental Group, our dentists and hygienists emphasize the importance of a customized dental treatment plan, especially when a patient requires oral surgery, full-mouth restoration, orthodontic care or cosmetic dental restoration. Progress to a healthier mouth starts with clear communication between your local Placerville dentist, so you can feel good about the quality of care you expect to receive.
What’s in a Dental Treatment Plan?
The most important aspect of any dental treatment plan is understanding why we recommend a specific treatment in the first place. Everyone has unique dental needs, based on such factors as their age, daily oral care habits, and existing dental restorations, such as fillings or crowns. Our dentists provide a customized dental plan based on your exact needs to maintain your dental health long term while balancing costs and treatment timeframes to prevent small issues from becoming bigger ones. Using this approach, our Placerville family dentists save patients and their families time and money.
With a customized dental treatment plan our patients receive:
- A detailed explanation of why we recommend a certain course of treatment and what it involves;
- Treatment options for different budgets;
- How long the plan will take to complete, including follow-up visits;
- Specific instructions to support your treatment plan at home, whether it be after oral surgery or caring for braces or dentures.
Finally, we always encourage our patients to ask as many questions as necessary to be comfortable about the care we recommend. We clearly outline costs and are happy to provide the treatment plan in writing. Educate yourself about your dental care, ask questions and enjoy good dental health and better quality of life!
