What To Expect At ARCHPOINT
Learn about what to expect when scheduling a procedure.
First Visit Consultation
Expect personalized care from the first visit. Every relationship at ARCHPOINT begins with a free consultation. You'll tour our facility and meet with our treatment coordinator, who will assess your suitability for dental implants. You’ll also meet with our doctors who will perform an i-CAT scan and oral exam to determine the best procedure for you. Our on-site financial coordinator will be available to provide all necessary financial information. At ARCHPOINT, your first visit will include ample time to get answers to all of your questions so you can move forward without any concerns.
Day of Surgery
Most procedures take just a few hours, scheduled early in the morning and completed by the afternoon. You’ll be sedated for the entire procedure and recover in the comfort of a private room. Once you wake up, you'll be fitted with a temporary arch and be home by early evening. Post-surgery pain is minor and can usually be treated with over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen. Most patients can expect to resume normal activities the next day.
Patients who have selected the ARCHPOINT Total solution will typically wear a temporary prosthesis for three months. This timeframe allows for proper adjustments and integration between your implants and bone. Once ready, ARCHPOINT will use high-end, lightweight materials to design and set in place your permanent prosthesis. A removable implant denture also is available to patients.
Aftercare Hygiene Services
Unlike other dental implant centers, ARCHPOINT offers follow-up care. Our specialists recommend patients visit every six months for a routine follow-up to have their dental implants thoroughly cleaned and properly examined.
