How long does the actual procedure take? Is it really all done in one day?

Yes, most patients walk into the office and leave later that day with a new smile. Here’s a basic idea of what happens during your procedure: Your doctors will administer anesthesia, perform the implant procedure, and then attach a brand new set of teeth to your new dental implants. Afterward, you will rest in our recovery room, where you will be discharged and sent home. The teeth you leave with are your temporary teeth that allow you to eat and enjoy your everyday life. Four to six months later, you’ll return to your dentist to replace your temporary teeth with your new, permanent teeth.
