Day of Surgery

What should I expect on the day of the surgery?

IV SEDATION
IV SEDATION

We use IV Conscious Sedation to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Almasri received his anesthesiology certification at the Medical College of Georgia so he can provide his surgery patients with the ultimate experience.

BONE PREPARATION
BONE PREPARATION

Some of our patients have remaining teeth, root tips, periodontal disease and/or infections. Dr. Almasri will remove any remaining teeth, roots or infected tissues. He will also perform a dental procedure called Alveoplasty. This is done to smooth out the jawbone in areas where teeth have been removed and to make room for the implant bridge to fit properly.

PLACEMENT OF IMPLANTS
PLACEMENT OF IMPLANTS

A minimum of 4 implants are placed in the upper and/or lower arches. In some cases Dr. Almasri may add additional implants to ensure the bridge is intact. We guarantee the FastNewSmile® for a lifetime and will do everything possible to ensure it lasts! There is no additional charge for extra implants; your initial quoted amount for the FastNewSmile® procedure will never change.
