Considering dental implants in Pasadena? If you’re dealing with teeth that are lost or which may need to be extracted, the team of leading dentists at Premier Care Dental Group has provided patients from throughout Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley with the best solutions out there for replacing lost or compromised teeth.
Why Get Dental Implants?
Lost teeth are not only bad for our smiles and our ability to eat, they are also associated with a number of serious systemic issues, such as diabetes and heart disease; they are also a direct cause of bone loss in the jaw. Dental implants are, at this point, the only solution that addresses these important health matters. They are also a lot more convenient, and our happy Premiere Care Dental Group patients typically think they look extremely natural and attractive. It also might make you feel better to know that Implants have been widely in use since the mid-1960s, and have continued to improve over the decades.
What are Dental Implants, Exactly?
Implants are, essentially, the closest thing there are to real teeth. One or more faux roots (usually metallic) are implanted via a minor surgical procedure. Then, a temporary prosthetic tooth is placed on top of the root. Over the months to follow, the implant will fuse with bone. Once healing is completed, permanent replacement teeth are placed on the implant.
