Our Smile Transformation Process

1

Consultation With Dr. Singh

From teeth cleanings to x-rays and oral cancer screenings we’re the hub for all your preventive dentistry care. Each visit will be tailored to your unique needs while always offering the highest level of care. Routine visits should be maintained twice a year in order to catch early signs of dental decay and disease and prevent them altogether.

2

Consultation With Restorative Dentist

The restorative dentist will be the doctor who designs the crown that will sit on the implant. This is the visible part of the dental implant and the consultation will ensure the end result looks natural.

3

Impressions Taken for Surgical Guide

We will take multiple impressions before your dental implant procedure. These impressions are used to create a surgical guide that ensures we place your implant in the right place the first time.

4

CT Scan and Surgical Placement of Implants

The day of your implant placement, CT scans will be taken of your mouth to ensure the surgical guide is accurate. We pride ourselves in placing implants correctly the first time for maximum success.
