You should discuss with your dentist your wants, needs and desires concerning your dental treatment. This should be done prior to any treatment plan, so that appropriate treatment options can be developed and presented for your consideration.

When treatment is presented, you will need to decide if you feel comfortable with the diagnosis of your oral health, the prognosis of your teeth and if you are satisfied with the proposed treatment, in this case a Cu-sil retained denture. You should "tell" and discuss with your dentist any concerns, ask any questions and then say "yes" or "no" regarding treatment. Tell the dentist everything that you think you should, so that he or she can help you in a manner that is acceptable to both you.
