Dental implants serve as a durable and natural-looking solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. The implant process involves several key steps: implant placement into the jawbone, osseointegration (fusion of implant with bone), and the attachment of a custom-made crown or restoration.

Suitable candidates for dental implants typically have good overall health, adequate jawbone density, and a commitment to oral hygiene. Seeking dental implants through a prosthodontist, such as Dr. Saraa provides distinct advantages.

Prosthodontists undergo specialized training in implant dentistry, acquiring advanced skills in the precise planning, placement, and restoration of dental implants, ensuring comprehensive expertise in replacing missing teeth. Their focused education equips them to offer patients optimal results in terms of aesthetics, function, and overall oral health.

What to expect

First Visit

Comprehensive exam, medical and dental history, 3D CBCT scan to evaluate bone density at future implant site.

Implant Placement

A small incision will be made in your gum tissue, implant will be securely placed in the jaw then sutures will be applied to promote effective healing.

Healing Process

While complete recovery from surgery takes 1-2 weeks, the permanent fusion of your dental implant with the jaw bone, known as “osseointegration,” typically takes 3-6 months. This crucial period ensures a strong and lasting connection between the implant and your jaw for optimal stability.

Fabricating the Prosthesis

After integration, we will capture impressions of your implant and surrounding teeth and send them to the lab, where your prosthetic (a crown or set of teeth) will be custom made to ensure a precise and comfortable fit.

Inserting the Prosthesis

The dentist will securely affix your restoration to the dental implant, concluding the procedure and ensuring a seamless integration for a fully restored and functional smile.


Routine dental check-ups every six months coupled with regular brushing and flossing, play a pivotal role in maintaining the health and stability of your implants.


Single Tooth Implant

Implant dentistry is a highly effective solution for replacing missing teeth especially for individuals with a single tooth gap. This approach offers several advantages over traditional bridges, including preserving adjacent teeth as it doesn’t require their alteration for support, providing long-term stability and preventing bone loss in the jaw.

The process involves surgically placing a titanium implant into the jawbone, allowing it to fuse with the bone over time. Once the implant has integrated, a custom-made crown is attached to restore function and aesthetics.

Implant Bridge

The implant-supported bridge is a highly effective option for replacing multiple missing teeth, particularly in cases where several adjacent teeth are absent.

This solution involves placing dental implants strategically along the jawbone, which serve as stable anchors for the bridge. Once the integration of implants in the bone is complete, a custom-made bridge, consisting of artificial teeth, is securely attached to the implants, restoring both function and aesthetics.

Compared to removable partial dentures, implant-supported bridges offer several advantages, including superior stability and comfort, as they are fixed in place and do not rely on adjacent teeth for support. Additionally, they help preserve jawbone density and prevent further bone loss, promoting long-term oral health and providing a more natural-looking and functional solution for replacing multiple missing teeth.

Full Arch Fixed Implant Restoration

Implant-supported full arch prosthesis offer a comprehensive solution for completely edentulous patients, providing stability, function, and aesthetics.

Indicated for those missing all teeth in an arch, this treatment involves strategically placing dental implants (usually 4 to 6 implants per arch) along the jawbone. Following implant placement, a full arch prosthesis, such as a Zirconia or Acrylic prosthesis, is securely attached to the implants, restoring the patient’s ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.

Compared to removable complete dentures, implant-supported prostheses offer numerous advantages, including enhanced stability and comfort, as they are securely anchored in the mouth and do not shift or slip. They also promote better oral health by preserving jawbone density and preventing bone resorption. Additionally, implant-supported prostheses provide a more natural and lifelike appearance, improving overall patient satisfaction and quality of life.


Implant overdentures are an excellent solution for completely edentulous patients, offering improved stability, function, and comfort compared to traditional removable complete dentures.

Typically indicated for individuals missing all teeth in an arch, this treatment involves placing dental implants (usually 2 to 4 implants per arch) strategically along the jawbone. Following implant placement, a specially designed denture, known as an overdenture, is securely attached to the implants, providing greater retention and support. Unlike traditional dentures, implant overdentures prevent bone resorption by stimulating the jawbone and preserving its structure. They also offer enhanced chewing efficiency, speech clarity, and overall comfort, as they are securely anchored in the mouth and do not shift or move during use.

One of the advantages of overdentures over fixed implant prosthesis is that patients usually remove them at night for cleaning, while their secure attachment to implants provides superior retention and stability during daily wear. This combination of stability and ease of maintenance makes implant overdentures a popular choice for restoring function and confidence in completely edentulous patients.
