Phased Treatment

Staging a Treatment Plan

Treatment plans are customized to fit both the needs, desires, times, and costs for each individual patient. The complexity of a treatment plan can be simplified by staging the steps and the timeframe for treatment. Some patients are most interested in minimizing their time off from work or minimizing the number of visits and choose to have many procedures done at one time. Others prefer to just do a segment of their mouth in the area that is numb, and still others prefer to treat one tooth at a time so their mouth is not open as long. Finances and insurance can also play a role in deciding how to proceed.

There are situations however, that we will explain the need for multiple treatment areas when related to esthetics or the bite and will work with the patient on both comfort and finances to achieve the best result. The bottom line is that we customize treatment to best fit your long term goals.
