What Happens Next?
Step 1: Consultation
Every dental implant procedure begins with a consultation. At this consultation, Dr. Lee will create a customized treatment plan just for you. You will learn exactly how much the procedure will cost without having to worry about any surprise fees.
Step 2: Pre-Procedure Exam
When you have decided that you are ready for permanent new teeth and ready to move forward with dental implants, Dr. Lee will meet with you for an exam to finalize your treatment plan and prepare everything you’ll need for your procedure. Once this exam is complete, you are ready to schedule your procedure.
Step 3: Dental Implant Procedure
This is your big day! We will be performing your implant surgery under local anesthesia and/or intravenous sedation. Please do not eat for 6 hours before the surgery and arrange to have some one escort and drive you home. We will prescribe some analgesic/pain medications for you to go home with. If you have any problems or concerns after the surgery, please free to contact Dr. Lee at (415) 472-5040.
Step 4: Post Procedure Check Ups
It is important to keep in mind there is a recovery period following your dental implant procedure. Typically patients will be on a soft food diet for several weeks to a few months while their implants heal. During this time, the typical patient will come back in for several checkups to ensure that everything is healing properly. All of your post-op checkups are at no additional cost.
