Pasadena Dental Implants
Do missing teeth prohibit you from smiling, laughing, or posing for photos? As you many know, there are many ways to replace missing teeth, but only one way to replace the tooth root. Provided by Dr. Nelson in Pasadena, dental implants for Los Angeles area patients permanently replace missing teeth and their roots in a way that looks, feels, and functions identically to natural teeth.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts surgically placed into the jaw, and restored with a prosthetic tooth. Over time, the jaw bone will grow around the posts, creating a secure foundation for replacement teeth and offering invaluable support to the bone structure. With expert placement and proper care, dental implants are meant to last a lifetime.

The biggest benefit of a dental implant is its ability to prevent bone loss. When a tooth is lost, your body begins to dissolve the bone that used to support the tooth. The presence of a dental implant will prevent this loss by mimicking the missing root.
Dr. Nelson keeps strength and aesthetics in mind when making any recommendations for your smile. Because of the natural stability dental implants provide in both appearance and function, they have become the gold standard in tooth replacement. However, there are situations where dental implants aren’t the right solution, and a dental bridge may be recommended. After carefully analyzing your unique smile needs and desires, Dr. Nelson will help you decide which solution is best.
