Steps of the Dental Implant Process

Step 1

Schedule a consultation.

Step 2

Meet with Dr. Karas to discuss the treatment option that’s right for you. 3D scans may be taken at this time.

Step 3

A bone graft may be required if more bone is needed. This will be performed before the dental implant placement.

Step 4

Dr. Karas will surgically place the implant(s). Over the next several weeks, the implant post(s) will fuse to the jaw bone and provide a stable foundation.

Step 5

The implant is uncovered during a second surgical visit. If the abutment was not attached during the first appointment, it will be performed at this time.

Step 6

The final prosthesis is attached by your dentist, and your dental implant restoration is complete!
