3 simple steps: 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.
