In this sense, it is fundamental to elaborate and adapt the treatment plan according to each person’s expectations, looking beyond the symptoms and the diagnosis and trying to get to know the individual and their reality better.
At Hugo Madeira Clinic, we seek to achieve a true transformation in all patients’ health, beauty and self-confidence. For this, the first time you visit our Clinic, the necessary exams for a complete diagnosis are performed, which include orthopantomography, taking photographs, and scanning your teeth. Through these tools, it is possible to create a digital smile before you even start; that is, through Digital Smile Design, you will be able to build and design the smile according to your expectations, and you will be able to see at that very moment what your new smile will look like.
The treatment plan will detail all the indications elaborated by the medical team to rehabilitate your smile completely. It will be adapted to your needs, presenting the ideal solution for your treatment.
Ask all the questions you have to ask, and be curious;
The most important thing is to listen and feel the patient to have an involvement that allows the patient to feel fulfilled. Thus, the referral of patients should be as humanized as possible with the assumption of a rewarding and comfortable service, where communication between dentist and patient is possible, orienting the patient to the reality and possibilities of treatment that are, in fact, a priority.
Many factors must be taken into consideration when developing a customized health plan, such as:
- The state of your overall health;
- The total time or number of consultations that will be required;
- The influence it will have on your quality of life;
- The financial/professional availability;
- The balance between the result and expectations.
A dental health planA personalized dentalHow important can it be to you?
A patient may need total rehabilitation but not be justified in doing it right away, for personal reasons, for other health problems, or simply because it is not the best time. However, you can plan the timing of this intervention.
Imagine that you have controlled periodontitis: together with your dentist and according to your expectations, you can decide whether to proceed to a more effective and lasting solution through a total fixed bridge on implants, which will allow you to have new teeth in one day and guaranteeing immediate esthetics and function, or whether, on the other hand, you prefer to try to maintain your teeth through the control of periodontal disease, knowing that you always have another solution as an option.
For those who wish to place contact lenses because they don’t like the shade or shape of their teeth but, for some reason, are unable to have this treatment at that time, they can have dental bleaching to achieve a colour that suits them better and place the contact lenses when it is more appropriate for them.
For example, for those not available for treatment or those who don’t live in Lisbon, it is possible to adapt the treatment plan in health and aesthetics, dividing it into phases or shortening and conditioning the necessary treatments, always ensuring the highest quality.
More personal factors also have a direct influence: if you have a phobia of dentists or if you’ve had one or more traumatic experiences with dental treatments in the past, some techniques and therapies can make all the difference, such as homoeopathic treatments and aromatherapy, as well as conscious sedation, which in very anxious patients is an excellent way to relax and calm them, allowing for greater comfort and minimizing any discomfort.
There are no ideal treatment plans;
Remember that each case is a case, and the treatment plan must reflect it since it is a construction of both clinician and patient. Here at Hugo Madeira Clinic, we can adapt your treatment plan to your expectations, considering the best possible outcome and ensuring that all steps and all planning are done in partnership with you.
