Hello,
My mom has some problem with two of her teeth and her dentist Dr. Phelan in Oakville told her to extract those two teeth and said that it can be replaced with dental implants. He also said that both the procedures can be done on the same day, I haven't heard that before. Is it really possible? My mom is in her 60's and also a diabetic patient, so doing both the procedures on same day will cause any other health problem for her?

It can be done on the same day but, I reckon there are some risks. It's better to discussed those factors (ie: your mom being diabetic) with your dentist.
