Close the Gaps In Your Smile

Are you self-conscious about the gaps in your smile? Why not restore your smile with dental implants? Pasadena, CA, dentist Dr. Jerrydental implants Johnson explains how implants can improve your smile.

Implants replace your roots

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are attached to dental crowns to create new teeth. Just like your natural roots, your replacement roots become firmly attached to your jawbone. Titanium, the metal used in dental implants, bonds to your jawbone, ensuring that your new root won't slip or slide no matter what you eat. Dental implants can replace one tooth or multiple teeth, thanks to dental bridges and implant-supported dentures.

Creating a new tooth involves a three-step process

Because it takes a few months for your implant to bond to your jawbone, the implant process usually requires a few dental visits. The first step in the process involves an oral surgical procedure to create an opening in your jawbone for the implant.

After your mouth heals and the implant bonds to your jawbone, a small screw will be added to the top of the implant. The screw, called an abutment, will eventually attach the dental crown to the implant. During this step, an impression of your mouth will be taken and will be used to create your new crown. When the crown is ready in just a few weeks, it will be connected to the implant, completing the process.

Are you a good candidate for dental implants?

When you visit our Pasadena office, we'll consider several factors when deciding if dental implants are a good choice for you, including:

  • Your Gums: If you've lost teeth due to gum disease, you're probably anxious to fill the gaps in your smile. Before the implant process begins, your gums must be healthy and free of gum disease.
  • Your Oral Hygiene Routine: Keeping your implant healthy requires regular brushing and flossing.
  • Your Jawbone Depth: Your jawbone must be deep enough to support your implant. If the bone is a little shallow, bone grafts may be needed to increase your jawbone depth.

Patient Reviews   


Dr. Johnson and his staff worked with me when I had a recent dental emergency. He was able to work me into his schedule and diagnose my cracked tooth and provide temporary relief from the pain. I am extremely happy with my new crown and feel that Dr. Johnson did an amazing job.  January 25th, 2023


Dr. Johnson is a high-quality dentist who takes the time to explain any procedure you need to have done, which greatly puts you at ease. I recently broke off a piece of one of my back molars while eating at a restaurant. I called his office and Dr. Johnson was able to see me right away and fit me in to his schedule. I ended up needing a crown and couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you, Dr. Johnson!     December 4th, 2018

Best Dentist In The World!!!!!! My wife has been going to Dr. Johnson for quite some time now and she introduced me to him about 12 years ago. I have never felt so comfortable with a dentist as I have with Dr. Johnson. I have had a lot of work done by Dr. Johnson and have never felt any pain... AT ALL! If you are afraid of going to the dentist because of the pain, you need not fear Dr. Johnson. He is easy going and patient and does not try to sell you anything you don't need. Another thing that makes his office great is, he is prompt. If your appointment is at 2, then you are in your chair and being worked on at 2. He doesn't over book, which speaks volumes about his care for his patients.

best.dentist.ever. Jerry Johnson is the best dentist I've ever been to. I used to go to Dental Plus in Pasadena, and although their dentists were very competent, they were always trying to get me to do what I thought were unnecessary procedures (like veneers I didn't want or need). Jerry is the exact opposite of this. He's very laid-back, knowledgeable, and never tries to rip you off. His staff are friendly, polite, and intelligent. I think he already has plenty of patients, but I'd strongly recommend him if you're looking for a dentist in the Pasadena area.
