If you have gaps in your smile, you may feel embarrassed or ashamed of the way your teeth look. However, you can complete your smile with dental implants and help from your dentist. Coming up with a plan to fill the gaps in your smile can boost both the functionality of your smile and your self-esteem. Find out more about dental implants and how they can help you with Dr. Peter Cooper at Pasadena Dental Implants in Pasadena, CA.

What is a dental implant? 
A dental implant is a stand-alone tooth replacement option. While a dental bridge, which also replaces a missing tooth, attaches to the healthy teeth surrounding a gap, an implant’s fixture lies within the bone itself. The bone grows around the tooth to integrate it into the smile and provide a solid foundation for the replacement tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Permanent: Dental implants are a permanent part of your smile. Their design allows them to remain in your mouth. The non-removable tooth functions, feels, and looks just like a natural tooth.
  • Custom: A dental laboratory creates each crown based on a clay impression of your mouth, meaning each implant fits seamlessly into your smile.
  • Easy to Clean: Dental implants require the same simple daily routine as your natural teeth. Brush twice a day, floss at least once a day, and see your dentist at least twice a year to keep both your natural teeth and implants healthy and clean for years to come.
  • Functional: The functionality of dental implants is second to none. Their design gives them the ability to function exactly like a natural tooth. While some tooth replacement options may have the chance of falling out or shifting while you eat or speak, implants stay put and work exactly as they should.
