Step 1: Consultation & Exam
Here, we'll take a Cone Beam 3D Scan and take a series of photos that will allow us to better plan your treatment and naturally blend your new teeth with your unique facial features.
Steps 2-3: Extraction & Bone Grafting (If Necessary)
If there is a tooth present, we will atraumatically extract it and do bone grafting to maintain the jaw bone and facial support. This will help avoid a sunken-aged facial appearance.
Steps 4-5: Digital Impression & Implant Placement
After a 3 to 4-month healing period, we'll place one or more implants. In many cases, we'll take #digitalimpressions at the time of surgery to speed up the process.
Step 6: Post-Op & Prosthetic
After surgery, you will also come in for a 1-month post-op and a 3-month prosthetic check as well to maintain your implants for a lifetime.
Step 7: Uncovery (If Necessary)
Next, we'll uncover the implant so that we can place the healing abutment. Depending on the case, we may be able to place the healing abutment on the same day of your implant visit.
Step 8: Crown Placement
During the last step, we will work with your referring dentist to digitally design your crown so that it can be ready for you right away after healing; saving 1 to 2 additional visits.
