Leave With a Smile the Same Day

Many patients are curious about how long their dental implant procedure will take. However, each surgery is different and depends on the number of implants being placed. Most implant surgeries can be completed in one or two hours for a single implant. The good news is that you can leave with a stunning smile on the same day as your dental surgery.

After your implants are placed, you will need to wait 3 months or more for it to heal and integrate with your jawbone. Then we will attach your final restorations or new tooth. We offer a variety of treatment options, each with its unique benefits. We’ll make sure you understand the benefits and costs, so you can make a well-informed decision.

Tooth Loss Options

Traditional Dentures: The Original Solution to Missing Teeth

Traditional dentures are typically made from a mold of your teeth and gums. They are removable and can be taken out for cleaning or when you want to take a break from wearing them. Some people choose this option because it’s the most affordable at the moment. However, they find out later that dentures can cause long-term problems, such as bone volume loss and changes to your facial appearance. That’s not to mention the embarrassing slips and messy adhesives they require.

Hybrid Dentures: Additional Stability at a Higher Cost

Implant supported dentures, also known as hybrid dentures, provide more stability. They are held in place by dental implants, which are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your jawbone. Although This type of denture is more stable and secure than traditional dentures, it’s more expensive and lacks the permanence of full mouth dental implants. 

Single Dental Implants: Permanent Tooth Replacement

Single tooth implants are a great option for people who are missing one or more teeth. The implant is placed in the jawbone, and a replacement tooth is then attached to the implant. This type of implant is strong and secure, and it functions just like your natural teeth. However, they are more expensive than traditional dentures and require a surgical procedure to place the implant. Dr. Fetsch is committed to making the tooth implant process a simpler one, with our experienced staff, we ensure that the dental implant procedure goes smoothly and leaves every patient smiling their brightest.

Full Mouth Dental Implants: The Premier Solution

Full mouth dental implants are the longest-lasting solution for people missing most or all of their teeth. At your All on X dental implant procedure, we can place four to six implants to completely restore your teeth. This type of implant involves placing implants in the jawbone and then attaching a full set of temporary replacements to the implants, and later your final zirconia restorations.
