WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Step 1: Free Consultation
Every dental implant procedure begins with a free one-hour consultation. At this consultation, your doctor will take a free 3-D x-ray of your mouth and provide a detailed explanation of all your options. Based on your discussion, your doctor will create a customized treatment plan for you. The doctor you consult with today will be the same doctor who takes care of you throughout the process, from beginning to end. This is part of our One Patient – One Doctor philosophy. During your consultation, your doctor will discuss exactly how much the treatment will cost, so you won’t have to worry about any surprise fees.
Step 2: Dental Implant Procedure
This is the beginning of your journey. The sooner you start, the sooner you will reach your destination: your renewed smile!
During this visit, your dental implants will be placed by your doctor (the same doctor you met for your consultation). You’ll go home with a set of temporary teeth that look like natural teeth. It’s important that we allow your implants to heal without the stress of biting forces, so we wait four months before placing the permanent teeth.
Step 3: Check Dental Implant & Take Impressions
Three and a half months after your implant is placed, your doctor will check to make sure your dental implant has healed (or “integrated”). He/she will then take a dental impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your permanent teeth to place on top of your dental implant. All of your post-op checkups are at no additional cost.
Step 4: Renewal
This is the final step! When your mouth has finished healing, and your new dental implants have stabilized, we will replace your temporary teeth with your new permanent teeth. Congratulations — you’re off with your renewed smile!
