Implant Dentistry in Aliso Viejo California

Dental implants are the best solution available to those with one or more missing teeth. Dental implants act as the replacement for both the crown of the tooth and the tooth’s root, making it the most stable, secure, strong, and resilient tooth replacement available.

When in place, dental implants will:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth
  • Prevent the loss of facial volume
  • Resolve bite problems or joint pain
  • Restore your ability to digest, chew, and speak
  • Prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
  • Add support, security, and comfort to a bridge or denture
  • Enhance the natural beauty of your smile

Procedure

During a series of appointments at South Coast Dentistry in Aliso Viejo, your dental implants will be surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone. This is done by either Dr. Maleki or one of our experienced specialists. Placement of the titanium dental implant can typically be done in one appointment, with one or two preliminary planning appointments necessary.

After the implant surgery, your implant and jawbone will begin to fuse together over the next several months. During this time, your mouth is allowed to heal. Once the bone and implant have fused, you will visit South Coast Dentistry again for one or two more appointments. During these appointments, Dr. Maleki will place your implant restoration. Depending on your individual needs and treatment plan, your dental implant restoration could be a bridge, a crown, or a denture. Dental implants create the most secure foundation for removable dentures and are a great option for qualified patients.

When complete, your dental implant will look and feel like a natural tooth, restoring function and beauty to your smile. If you are missing teeth, we invite you to call or visit South Coast Dentistry today to schedule your implant consultation with Dr. Maleki. Together, you can achieve the beautiful, complete, and functional smile that you have always wanted!
