Dental implants can significantly improve the quality of your life, but getting them is not a decision to be made on the fly. It’s also not a decision that can be made from reading information on the Internet alone. Every person is unique, and every dental implant treatment plan is customized to meet their individual needs. The only way to know exactly what’s involved in your specific treatment plan is to come see us for a dental implant consultation. Here’s what you need to know.
Free dental implant consultation in San Diego at Smile Designers
At Smile Designers in San Diego, we offer free, no-obligation dental implant consultations to help you learn as much as you can about the details of your treatment before you commit. Here’s what’s involved with a free dental implant consultation at Smile Designers.
Introduction to our team
It’s important to have a good rapport with your dental implant team so you can feel comfortable through every step of the process. During the consultation, you can get to know us a little bit and experience the comfortable environment of our office as well as the welcoming compassion of our whole team.
Explanation of the procedure
One of the priorities of the consultation is to ensure that you have all the information you need. We’ll use the time to make sure you understand what happens during each step of the dental implant procedure, what you need to do to prepare, and what to expect during the postoperative period. We encourage you to ask any and all questions you have, no matter how insignificant you may think they are. Our goal is for you to leave the consultation with a firm understanding of the dental implant process.
Evaluation of your oral structures
In order to determine whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants and to customize a treatment plan for you, Dr. Hage will need to evaluate your oral structures. This may involve an oral examination as well as a CT Scan or any other imaging necessary to ensure that you are in good health and that you have a sufficient amount of jawbone to hold the implants in place.
Creation of treatment plan
Once Dr. Hage has had a chance to evaluate the condition of your teeth and jaws, he’ll create a dental implant treatment plan just for you. This may be simple or fairly complex, depending on a number of different factors. You may need a tooth extraction, bone graft, or other procedure performed before you are able to undergo the dental implant procedure. If you do, this will be noted in your treatment plan. Dr. Hage will go over all the details of the plan with you during your consultation.
Discussion of total cost and financing options
At Smile Designers in San Diego, we believe in full transparency, which is why we provide patients with the total cost of their treatment plan at the time of the consultation. If you would like to add a cosmetic or restorative dental procedure to the treatment plan in order to save yourself another trip to the office, just let us know, and we’ll add it. During your consultation, we’ll go over the cost of your procedure and as well as your options for financing.
The next step is up to you
Our consultations are not only free, but they’re also free from obligation. You can choose to go home with the information from your consultation and sleep on it, or you can schedule your next dental implant appointment before you leave our office. It’s up to you!

Dental implants have a high success rate, but a very small percentage of implants do fail. Gum disease, insufficient jawbone, and smoking are three of the main reasons for failure of dental implants. As with any major surgery, dental implant surgery comes with the standard risk of infection. There is also a risk of sinus problems when implants are improperly placed in the upper jaw, which is why it’s crucial to choose a professional, experienced dental implant expert to perform the surgery.
Dental implants can restore your confidence as well as your smile. If you’re ready to replace your missing teeth and set your smile free, call Smile Designers at (619) 222-6000 to schedule a consultation today. We serve San Diego.
