Find out the many things that dental implants can do for you and your smile.

Replaces Missing Teeth Permanently 
One of the most important benefits of dental implant surgery is that it provides a permanent replacement for a missing tooth. Other treatments, like dentures and bridges are only temporary and superficial solutions that can be removed. After your Pasadena dental surgeon installs an implant, it will be as firmly rooted as the rest of your teeth. Your implant will be in place for a lifetime with good care.

Keeps Your Bone Tissue Healthy
When you opt for dentures to replace missing teeth, the appliance covers up your gums. Over time the bone tissue inside of your gums will begin to weaken and absorb into the body. With a dental implant, that's not an issue. The implant will help keep your bone tissue viable and strong. Bone grafting is also available at Pasadena Dental Implants—it's a treatment that strengthens and reinforces the tissue by adding new bone. 

Minimizes Chance of Future Decay
A dental implant is composed of two main parts. There's a device that is installed below the gumline and a porcelain crown that is installed on top. That crown is designed with porcelain material which is resistant to damage. With a dental implant, you can relax knowing that your new tooth will be protected from cavities and tooth decay. However, it is very important that you continue to brush and floss regularly to avoid gum disease when you have dental implants.
