So your Dentist or Denturist spoke to you about your dental implants. Here is what happens on the day of your implant surgery.
- Prior to your implant placement, the dentist will confirm your treatment plan.
- In most cases – your lower arch of teeth will have already been removed or will be removed to create this foundation for your implants.
- Your Denture will then be supported by both the planned implants, and your tissues.
- Utilizing a similar anesthetic as would be used to fill a cavity, the dentist will freeze your lower jaw prior to the implant placement.
- Once frozen, a short and minimally invasive procedure is to follow taking between 25-45 minutes (number of implants placed dictates procedure time i.e. 2 vs 4)
- Minimal trauma allows for a comfortable healing period.
- Within the 25-45 minute procedure time, if initial stability is reached – the dentist will screw in the TiSi.snap abutment(s).
- The TiSi.snap’s unique design allows for immediate stabilization of your denture.
- Once the surgical aspect has been completed, your Denturist will take over to stabilize your denture immediately to the newly placed implant attachments.
- This procedure will take a maximum of 30 minutes to apply the silicone material within your denture.

- The silicone hold provides a cushion under function and rest, while stabilizing the denture vertically and horizontally.
- Your healthcare providers will provide you a unique long-term maintenance plan, as well as home care instructions on maintaining your oral and prosthetic hygiene.
