Welcome to Stuart Prosthetic Dentistry!

Your First Visit

The Beginning of Your Dental Journey

At Stuart Prosthetic Dentistry, we strive to deliver exceptional comprehensive dental care, and we do so by spending the time necessary to get to know our patient from the beginning. Dr. Tyler understands that everyone he treats is completely unique, so he believes that dental care should be specifically tailored to a patient’s needs, goals, and budget. To do this, your first visit will consist of the following:

Initial Consultation

When you come to our office for the first time, you’ll get a complementary gift bag, have a chance to meet our team, and go on a tour of the office so you can immediately begin to feel comfortable. Then, you’ll sit down with Dr. Tyler. He’ll ask you about your medical history. You’ll also discuss your dental history and goals of treatment. It is important for you and Dr. Tyler to get on the same page.

Dental Diagnostic Imaging

In order to properly diagnose dental conditions during your comprehensive examination, Dr. Tyler will often need some or all of the following:
  • Full Mouth Series of digital x-rays taken within the last year.
  • Panoramic x-ray taken within the last 3 years.
  • Full jaw 3D imaging – Cone Beam Computed Technology (CBCT) in order to determine dental implant treatment options.
  • Intra- and Extra-oral photographs for treatment planning and patient communication.

Comprehensive Dental Examination

The goal of this evaluation is for Dr. Tyler to learn everything he can about the current state of your oral health. He’ll examine the following in detail:
  • Teeth
  • Periodontal (gum) health
  • Occlusion (bite)
  • Existing dental restorations (prosthetics)
  • Dental esthetics
  • TMJ – jaw joint and related muscles
  • Neck – lymph nodes, thyroid gland, carotid arteries
  • Intraoral soft tissues
  • Oral pathology
  • Saliva consistency and amount

Treatment Options

Upon completion of your comprehensive dental examination, Dr. Tyler will discuss his findings and help you understand everything that is going on with your oral health. Then, he’ll make treatment suggestions based on your goals outlined in the initial consultation.

For simple treatment needs, the treatment plan(s), including financial estimates, will be reviewed prior to your departure. However, there are often multiple treatment options, ranging from ideal treatment (more expensive) to compromised treatment (less expensive). If multiple complex treatment options exist for you, Dr. Tyler and his team may need a couple of days to complete your multiple treatment plans. When this occurs, we will ask you to return for presentation of your treatment options in our consultation room, without any additional charge, as it is considered a continuation of your examination.

No matter your oral condition, Dr. Tyler wants you to be completely informed on the options you have for treatment. In order for you to choose your own individualized treatment plan, he and his staff will explain in great detail each aspect of the procedures required, including cost, preparations, after-care, and long-term maintenance.

Starting Treatment

Treatment plans will begin with a thorough dental hygiene treatment (cleaning) to get your gums to a healthy state. From there, Dr. Tyler will carry out the plan you both decided on earlier. At any time, you can ask for treatment to be adjusted or re-sequenced, so it better suits you.

Why We Do Things This Way

We find this approach leads to a better patient experience and a higher level of care because it enables us to get to know you both personally and clinically. Patient education is a big component of it as well. In our experience, a well-informed patient is usually a healthier one.

This method takes a little more time compared to a typical dental office that is trying to get patients in and out as quickly as possible. However, we find that our patients appreciate the extra one-on-one attention and personalized treatment we provide.

Come Visit Us Today

Starting at your initial consultation, our team will make you feel like a member of our family. Working with Dr. Tyler, he’ll ensure you get everything you need to enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile throughout your life. To begin your dental journey with us, contact us today.
