General dentist explains the importance of Consultations for planning your Dental Care

When you think about going to the dentist, taking x-rays and having your teeth cleaned are likely what first comes to mind. But did you know that the consultation is just as important? Whether you are having a routine checkup or discussing more advanced treatment for oral health problems or cosmetic issues, a consultation with your dentist is an essential part of maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile. At Dentistry On 10 in Mississauga, Ontario, general dentist Dr. Rina Kotecha views dental consultations as a vital component of your care planning.

What happens during a dental consultation?

Dental consultations are tailored to your specific needs and current oral health, but typically include the following components:

  • Paperwork to provide us with important information for your care, such as your demographic information, medical and dental history, and dental insurance details.
  • X-rays as needed to visualize the components of your teeth and jawbone that are invisible to the naked eye.
  • Examination by the dentist to evaluate your overall oral health, particularly any areas of concern.
  • Conversation between you and the dentist to discuss a variety of topics, including any symptoms you are having, your goals for your smile, your treatment preferences and budget, and other topics pertinent to your specific situation.

Based on the information gathered during these parts of the consultation, Dr. Rina Kotecha will then discuss your treatment options with you and provide you with educational information about any specific issues you may be having. In a non-judgmental, compassionate conversation, Dr. Rina Kotecha will answer any questions you have and discuss the pros and cons of various options based on your specific needs.

Our Happy Patients Say

Procedure – Gum Disease Testimonial

Hi I’m at dentistry on 10 and I had gum disease and they treated it. Laser treatment, laser gum treatment and I just want to say it was awesome. I have the rota dent brush and I use that daily and it keeps my mouth fresh and clean and hopefully it’ll prevent any future issues. The staff here is amazing, always so polite Doctor Rena rocks. I’ve seen her for years totally rocks. She is very kind gentle, especially if you don’t like the dentist. She’s the one to go to because she’s there for you and she’s sensitive to your needs and she rocks. Just want to say I had a root canal with her many, many, years ago and it she’s so gentle. I don’t know what the big issue is with the root canals, so that’s my feelings. All good. Highly recommend.
