In order to get the most out of your consultation, we advise you to do some research and read up on what’s involved in dental implant procedures prior to your appointment. Conducting your own research will help you formulate insightful questions as well as make note of any concerns you would like to address during your consultation in our Aliso Viejo, CA office. We believe that knowledge is power, so we hope this page will serve as a valuable resource when learning about what to expect with dental implants on your journey to optimal oral health!
Your consultation is only the first step in your journey toward a new smile. From your first appointment, we use our CT scans to create custom surgical guides to be used during your placement procedure. On your day of surgery, we will complete any tooth extractions and bone grafting needed to prepare your jaw for dental implants. Then, using our guides, we place one or more dental implants into the bone. Your dental implants will take anywhere from 3-6 months to fully heal and integrate into your jaw bone. When healed, you will return to our office to receive your permanent restoration. In a matter of months, you will be able to experience the amazing benefits of having a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile once again!
