How long does it take to complete the treatment?

  1. Your dentist will determine your specific needs and your candidacy for the procedure.
  2. You and your dentist schedule a meeting with your local ZAGA Center for the procedure.
  3. The surgery takes a few hours depending on your specific needs.
  4. Within 24 hours of the procedure, you will receive a fixed denture called an “immediate prosthesis.” This is temporary but appears real and is useable.
  5. It will generally take about 4 months for your mouth to heal and the swelling to go down. During this time we suggest a soft diet and to not smoke. 
  6. You will receive a final prosthesis after the healing period that will fill the gaps made from the gums reducing swelling and that will correct other technical and aesthetic aspects.
  7. Enjoy your smile and show it off to the world.
