Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Find out why dental implants might be the best solution for treating your tooth loss.dental implants

Our Pasadena, CA, cosmetic dentist Dr. Jerry Johnson understands that dealing with tooth loss can take a real toll on your oral health or your self-esteem. Don’t you want a restoration that is strong, reliable and boasts a long life? We thought so! Then it might be time to turn your attention to dental implants.

What is a dental implant?

We’re so glad you asked! A dental implant is the best alternative to replacing your missing teeth for many healthy individuals dealing with tooth loss. No matter whether you are missing just one tooth or a whole row of teeth, dental implants can help. After all, dental implants can support everything from a single dental crown to a full set of dentures.

How do I get a dental implant?

Once we determine that you are a good candidate for treatment, the next step is to get surgery so that our Pasadena, CA, dentist can place the implant into the jawbone. This procedure can be done right here in our office under local anesthesia, which will numb the area completely so you can feel comfortable during your procedure.

It will take a single dental implant a couple months to naturally meld together with the bone so the implant can be permanent. If there is rarely any bone loss then, the dental implant will integrate with the bone more quickly than if there is some bone deterioration.

From there, the implant is revealed to place an abutment on top. Once the gums heal around the abutment, the dental crown or other restoration can be placed on top.

Am I right for dental implants?

While most healthy adults dealing with tooth loss are good candidates for dental implants, this is still something that our Pasadena, CA, general dentist will have to determine. We will examine your mouth and run x-rays to determine the health of your jawbone before we decide your candidacy. If you are looking to get dental implants in Pasadena, CA, then it’s time you called Dr. Johnson, who has been caring for Pasadena residents for over 30 years.

Dr. Jerry Johnson is amazing!   Love him. I have delta dental PPO and switched to him when I moved to the area. Highly recommend!

I'm so glad that I found this dentist! He and his staff are the nicest, kindest, and professional people! The main reasons are that they are honest and fair. I feel like I'm going to see family when I go there. Dr. Johnson and his team always treat you with care. They are very gentle, because I'm sure that they are cognizant of the fact that most people are very frightened to see a dentist and get their teeth cleaned or treated. Great people-highly recommended!

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. 


I wouldn't go anywhere else! I have a phobia of dentists and had stayed away from any for 5-6 years until I found Doctor Johnson. He worked with me and seemed to understand my fear. With a genetic tendency for gum problems, he has done everything to help encourage me to improve my dental health. Even when I went to grad school and had access to the low-cost university dentist, I chose to have Dr Johnson do my dental work. 5 stars all the way.

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!     

I have been going to Dr. Johnson's office for a number of years and I cannot recommend them enough.  The staff is knowledgeable, courteous and always friendly - there is a caring, personal touch here that you do not find with all Dental Offices.  

From the moment you arrive you are greeted with a smile and a warm demeanor by Mary at the front desk, and that feeling continues through the rest of your visit.  Dr. Johnson always takes the time to explain any necessary procedures and offers advice & tips on ways that I can improve my teeth in advance of the next visit.

I know that often people don't usually enjoy going to the dentist, which is why I have told referred so many people to Dr. Johnson - here you really feel like you are part of the family.

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.

 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.
