Are Dental Implants Common among Patients with Missing Teeth?
Advanced Technology for Optimal Results
In order to determine that you are a good candidate, Dr. Berbari and his team will assess your medical history and oral health, and conduct 3D imaging of your jaw and teeth. Some of the technology we use to plan and perform your treatment include:
Undergo the Implant Procedure in Comfort
In addition to the more common forms of anesthesia and dental sedation, such as numbing solution and oral sedatives, our dentist can administer intravenous conscious sedation at our Montreal office to make the procedure virtually pain-free.
Your Dental Restoration Options
We can treat a single missing tooth or widespread tooth loss.
A Closer Look at Dental Implant Surgery
How long is it going to take to achieve a complete smile?
Your Treatment Timeline Can Span Several Months
Dr. Berbari can extract an infected or damaged tooth and perform a socket preservation graft to prepare the area for dental implants. In some cases, he can place an implant on the same day. But for most patients, we prefer to let the extraction site heal for two months prior to implant surgery.
If your 3D images show that bone loss has occurred, we can perform an in-office bone graft or sinus lift. We have two types of grafts available. Autografts utilize bone from another part of your body while allografts use bone from a genetically similar organism.
Fusion of the Bone Graft
Your bone graft will fuse with your surrounding bone tissue over the next three to six months. This process is known as osseointegration. Once your graft is fully healed, we can perform implant surgery.
Dental Implant Placement
We will administer local anesthesia and in most cases, intravenous or oral conscious sedation. Dr. Berbari will place the titanium implants himself at our Montreal practice using a surgical guide to ensure the most accurate result. The length of surgery will vary depending on the number of implants, but most procedures are completed within one to two hours.
Dental Implant Osseointegration
With proper care, most patients are fully recovered within three to four months. To promote the integration of the implants with surrounding bone and tissues, you should avoid smoking and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
When you are fully healed, you will come back to our office to receive your abutments. We will also take impressions on the same day.
Fabricating Custom Restorations
Your impressions will be sent to a local lab where a skilled lab technician will carefully craft your crowns, bridges, or dentures to fit precisely and complement your features.
A few days later, you will come back to our practice so that we can attach your final restoration. We can make minor adjustments as needed, and then you can leave our Montreal office with a complete and beautiful smile.

So what exactly will dental implants cost me?
The Cost of Dental Implants Varies from Patient to Patient
