Dental Implant Procedure in 10 Steps

Sequence of Appointments


This is the first step in the full arch process. During this appointment, you will meet with your Dr. Kurt O. Bally DMD FICOI to discuss your needs and options for dental implants. The consultation will typically take about an hour. This first and free visit is $525 value.


Your dentist will take a series of records, including dental x-rays, 3D scans, and photographs. These records will be used to create a treatment plan and to fabricate your dental implants.

Pre-surgical consult

This appointment is held before the surgery to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure, as well as the recovery process. You will also have a chance to ask any questions you may have.


This is the procedure where the implants are placed into your jawbone. The surgery typically takes about 2 hours per jaw and is done safely with oral anesthesia. All patients leave with their new temporary teeth on the day of the surgery and will return within 1-2 weeks to have their first post-op visit and receive their fist implant prototype teeth. It is important to remain on a very soft diet after surgery and before receiving your first prototype.


1-2 weeks after your surgery you will return to check your healing and receive your first set of implant prototype teeth that will be attached directly to your implants. We allow up to 3 versions of teeth during the healing process to ensure the dentist and patient is happy with the look and feel. As your implants heal your dentist will create a series of prototypes for your implant bridge. These prototypes will be used to test the fit and function of the bridge before it is permanently placed.


The implants will need to heal for 4-6 months before the next step can be taken. Dr. Bally will also provide a night guard to help prevent excess pressure from going to your implants. As you heal you will remain on a soft diet.

Prototyping and verification

Once the implants have healed, your dentist will create a final prototype of your dental bridge. This prototype will be verified to ensure that it is the correct size, shape, and color. Before authorizing the fabrication of your new zirconia implant smile.


This is the appointment where your permanent dental bridge is placed. The procedure typically takes about 1 hour. It's a truly rewarding visit for everyone.

Post-delivery consult and documentation

This appointment is held after your new zirconia implant smile is installed and your final night guard is given and instructions to maintain your smile are discussed. Final pictures, X-rays and video mark the end of your zirconia implant smile journey.


Your zirconia implant smile will need to be maintained on a regular basis to ensure that it continues to function properly. This may include cleaning, adjustments, and checkups.

Patient Testimonials

Before & After


I recently saw Dr. Bally for Implants, and it was the most comforting, painless experience. I am young so I have never had any serious dental work therefore my anxiety was at an all time high. The staff reassured me that everything would be fine, constantly made sure I was okay, providing constant reassurance. I did not feel a thing during my procedure and by the time I was home, the front desk Arliss, Called me to check how I was holding up. Overall it was a great experience, from the front desk to the doctors. Thank you for making me feel at home.


Dr.Bally and Amanda were great. So was the front desk. Thank you for the amazing experience with my implant surgery.


I went in with severe dental anxiety and I walked out with a smile. I was very insecure of my missing tooth to the point I hid my smile but Dr. Bally reinsured me that getting an implant would be a breeze and he would do anything he could to make sure I was comfortable again. Very affordable and the office was very clean and friendly.


I just had my implant done here, and I can say that this place by far has been my favorite dental office. Everyone here is super nice and friendly. Their dentists are knowledgeable. Dr.Bally was very professional and kept me informed regarding what would be done during the implant process. It was a long process, approximately 3 months or so, therefore; I had so many questions, and the staff made me feel comfortable to ask them. For me, that’s very important. Thank you guys for taking such good care of me. Keep up the good work :)


Years of complex dental problems have led to pain & infection, signaling time to move on from a partial to a full denture. I didn't think I would be a candidate for any type of implants due to bone loss but after a panoramic x-ray, exam, and CT I was surprised that I had options. Kwon was very kind and Dr. Garcia took time to talk me through some of my concerns. Monique sat with me and my husband at length to explain each option and process, as well as the costs. We decided to do 4 implants and a zirconia upper snap-in denture at a package price that includes everything, and should be done in 4-6 months. Monique's patience and knowledge guided us in a major decision, and I will update with the results...I'm nervous but looking forward to a functional, healthy, beautiful smile.


This my second review In and as said before I'm in awe of the friendliness and professionalism of the office had to have a x-ray of the implant that was put in 3 weeks ago I teased them about not having any pain as I was told by friend about how painful it is Dr Bally come out greeted me with a smile showed me my x- rays and explained about the computerized procedure that he)ps him place the implant perfectly with minimal pain. For never having to have any major dental work before I lucked out in finding him.

Modern Dental Smiles is the first name that comes to my mind when talking about any dental clinic in Wellington, FL. I first got to know about this dental clinic while searching for the best place to get dental implants on the internet. The thought of going to the dental clinic for getting implants was pretty scary in the beginning. The fear stayed until I visited Modern Dental Smiles in-person. Staff behavior is so good that it takes half the pressure off your shoulder. To add on, the dentists were providing a detailed answer to all my questions before starting with the It has been quite some time that my dental work is done and the results are amazing too. I do not have to suffer from any problems related to my missing tooth. Thank you Modern Dental Smiles for guiding me throughout the steps of getting a dental implant.

I have nothing but good things to say about this office. The ladies up front are so kind. They are so willing to help with any questions or concerns. They are very very clean and lovely office. Kurt Bally and Laji took care of me for two major procedures I needed to be done. They are so attentive, thorough, and kind. I was very anxious on my first visit to get two implants and they walked me thru each one being very kind and considerate thru the whole thing. They also make sure they say bye to you when they leave, the doctor and staff. Never treat you like just another patient. Such a kind and sweet office. So far my implants are going well and healing beautifully. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

I’ve had a previous traumatic dental experience. All of that was redeemed by going to modern dental smiles. The staff is warm and welcoming. I love the team, they go above and beyond to meet your needs, answer any questions and make sure you fully understand everything there is about the care of your mouth. I had to get my wisdom and molar taken out as well as get an implant put in. The place I went to last time scarred me and coming here I am just overjoyed at how adamant they were about making sure I was comfortable through the whole surgery. I didn’t feel a thing I was shocked. This is the only dentist I trust to go too and if you were nervous or hesitate to check them out DONT BE! It was worth it thank you, DR. Bally and staff!
