Everybody deserves a healthy and full smile. However, what happens when you lose one, or worse, a couple of your teeth? Missing teeth could make you embarrassed about smiling and feel unattractive. Likewise, just one lost tooth can make it hard to chew correctly, and in time, cause havoc on your bite.

Thankfully, you can restore your smile using a natural-looking, durable, and permanent tooth restoration option in the form of dental implants. Available here at Pasadena Dental Implants in Pasadena, CA, our periodontist, Dr. Peter Cooper, can determine your candidacy for the procedure and help you get your smile back.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Restoring a lost tooth using a dental implant could drastically enhance not only your smile but your oral function as well. Implants also maintain and correct the spacing and position of the real teeth surrounding them. Likewise, they can help prevent deterioration of your jawbone.

When you lose a tooth, this could lead to the underlying jawbone to deteriorate because it would also lose the stimulation from the tooth roots. But since implants will act as artificial tooth roots, they will preserve your jawbone. In addition, they can even help you restore a more youthful appearance since they can help restore your facial contours. This is especially true if you have lost multiple teeth.

How Does a Dental Implant Work as a Tooth Replacement?

Your periodontist in Pasadena, CA, Dr. Peter Cooper, will surgically insert the titanium implants into your jawbone. Essentially, they will serve to stabilize the prosthetic tooth on top by acting as your new tooth roots. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months (during which the implant will fuse with the jawbone, itself), a dental crown will be placed atop the restoration, completing the procedure.

How Do I Know If I’m a Great Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are generally in good health and have lost one or several teeth, you are likely a great candidate for implants. However, your dentist will need to make certain that your jawbone is strong enough to support this restoration. For people who have insufficient or weak jawbones, they may still qualify for dental implant surgery if they undergo a sinus lift or bone graft.
