3 step process. ... : 1) diagnostic phase, 2) surgical phase ; 3) restorative phase . Diagnostic steps should start with thorough oral examination ; 3-d ct scan. Surgical step is designed according to restorative guidelines using ct scan. The final stage (restorative phase) could be completed as early as 3- 4 months following the successful integration of implants.

Surgery &Restoration: The implant fixture is first placed with surgery, then a dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is added to the implant. A variable amount of healing time is required before a dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant.
