Are you missing some teeth and are delaying the treatment? Don’t wait anymore! Replace your missing teeth with dental implants from your Pasadena, CA, dentist, Dr. Peter Cooper of Pasadena Dental Implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants procedures are teeth replacement surgeries performed to replace the whole tooth structure, including its roots. The surgery is most suitable when the teeth are severely damaged that the dentist can’t place a dental crown over the remaining tooth roots. The implant consists of an upper part, called the crown, and a metal post that mimics the roots. The metal posts are used to support the crown.

How is the procedure done?

Before starting the surgery, your dentist will perform dental examinations to make sure you don’t have any dental condition that may disrupt the treatment. Then the metal posts will be placed in your jawbone, and the titanium that is forming the posts will start fusing in your bone. The fusion may complete after few months, and during this period, your dentist may attach a temporary crown to protect the post. When the fusion process finishes, your dentist will cement the new permanent crown that looks just like your original tooth.

Post-surgery complaints

As with any other surgical intervention, you may experience some of the following conditions:

  • Gums and face swelling
  • Gums bruising
  • Minor bleeding
  • Local pain

These conditions can be avoided and treated using prescription medications and antibiotics.

Caring for your dental implant

The dental implants that are offered in our Pasadena, CA, office don’t require any special dental care. Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing once, and using antiseptic mouthwash is enough to protect the implants from any damage. This characteristic makes the dental implant a satisfying treatment option.
