The procedure to place an implant takes 30 to 60 minutes for one implant and only 2 to 3 hours for multiple implants. The number of appointments and time required, vary from patient to patient. Drs. Pollack, Odrich and Sarmiento will bring great precision and attention to the details of your case. Prior to surgery, you may receive antibiotics and for those who request it, oral sedatives, intravenous sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas). These options are discussed with you at your consultation appointment.

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 40,000 cases of oral/pharyngeal cancer are diagnosed each year, with over 7500 of these cases resulting in the death of the patient. Fortunately, oral cancer, if caught early, can be more effectively treated. Oral cancer may first appear without producing any symptoms, making it hard to recognize without an exam. There are many types of oral cancer, including adenocarcinoma and melanoma, but the most common form of oral cancer is squamous cell carcinoma.
An Implant-Supported Overdenture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Standard dentures are unsecured prostheses with inherent limitations. Frequently, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed. Modern dentistry can help with implant supported dentures. The Implant-Supported Overdenture treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by dental implants. Fewer implants are needed and overall treatment time and cost is reduced.
