Consultation and Examination

The consultation is the significant step where you connect with our chief dentist at Oris Smile Dental clinic, Dr. Janu Shah. It is a critical step as you can discuss all your queries and clear all your doubts with Dr. Janu Shah.

The clinical examination involves analyzing the current dental status of your teeth and surrounding structures. This essential step helps formulate a customized treatment plan by deciding which type of overdenture suits you the best.

Implant surgery

This is the actual surgery that is done under local anesthesia. It is an entirely painless and hassle-free procedure. The dental implants are tiny posts of titanium inserted into the jawbone directly to support the prosthesis.

Recovery phase

It differs from person to person and is usually two to six months. The implants are adequately secured into the bone and become stable. It is crucial to confirm the stability of the implants before loading them with prostheses.

Healing cap

Once the implant integration is confirmed within the jawbone, the healing caps are placed after exposing the implants. The healing caps guide the healing of soft tissues around the implants.

Dental impression

The dental impression is made to make a model that will be sent to the lab for denture fabrication.

Framework fabrication

The framework is fabricated as per the dental impressions. The artificial teeth are adjusted on the denture according to an individual’s bite.

Final insertion

Once the framework is finalized, the final prosthesis is fabricated by the dental lab. The final insertion involves locking the denture with implants already placed in the mouth.


Regular follow-up visits are essential to track the progress of the implants and also to check the dental status of the natural teeth if any, and the surrounding structures periodically
