Steps to a New Smile
1. Assessment, Diagnosis and Planning
Sedation may be used for patient comfort during oral (dento alveolar) surgery. Dental implant surgery generally takes around one to two hours depending on the number of implants required and whether associated bone grafting or modification is needed. The procedure can often be done in one stage, but some cases may require a two stage surgery where dental implants are initially left submerged under the gum and exposed in a short procedure at a future date.
Where possible, Dr Habibi will remove diseased teeth in the same implant dentistry procedure. He is accomplished in ‘immediate implants’ meaning implants are often installed at the same time as the tooth extraction. If you are considering having teeth extracted, talk to Dr Habibi and this team about techniques such as ‘immediate implants’ and ‘Teeth in a Day’. Modern techniques now allow simultaneous removal and restoration of teeth, depending on the case, while saving you time and multiple procedures.
