Dental Implants in Pasadena, CA

If you had lost a tooth, it would not have been an enjoyable experience. The loss of a tooth can affect your smile and your ability to eat your favorite foods comfortably. Dental implants offer a more permanent and visually appealing solution for replacing a lost tooth. They function and look just like natural teeth, giving back your beautiful smile. If you are looking for an experienced dentist who can place dental implants, Dr. Jeanne V. Devi, DDS in Pasadena, California, is here to provide her expertise in caring for your dental needs and your smile.What Is a Dental Implant?​

A dental implant is a tiny screw made of titanium, surgically drilled into the jawbone, and serves as an anchor to secure artificial teeth. There are various reasons why patients would choose dental implants. First, they look exactly like natural teeth and function as such, allowing you to eat normally while preserving the facial structure and giving you a beautiful smile again. In addition, the gap left by a lost tooth can cause bone deterioration, and a dental implant prevents that.

How Does a Dental Implant Work?

Once the tiny titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone, the implant and bone fuse together over a few months. This bond creates a stable anchor to hold the artificial teeth. After the bonding is complete, posts are placed in the implants, and the new teeth are then inserted onto the posts.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

They Serve as Natural Teeth 

One of the most vital advantages of a dental implant is that it restores chewing power to the teeth. Most patients will fail to differentiate between an implant and a natural tooth. Also, you will not face any problems while brushing or flossing your teeth.

They Prevent Bone Loss 

A loss of tooth means there is a space in the jawbone. If the area is not filled up quickly, there will be a gradual deterioration of the entire jaw bone. Dental implants provide a solid option in such a situation. Since implants restore both the root and the tooth, chewing is restored to normal.

They Keep Neighboring Teeth Stable 

The gap resulting from a missing tooth can cause the neighboring teeth to occupy the space. This misalignment of teeth can affect the bite. And a poor bite could cause issues with the TMJ. Dental implants fill those gaps and avert any resultant problems.

They Prevent Gum Diseases 

The gap left by a missing tooth traps food and bacteria. This can lead to gum diseases. These gaps can easily be closed with dental implants.
