The Benefits of Dental Implants

A dental implant offers more than a new tooth. Discover the benefits of this treatment.

Are you interested in receiving dental implants? Many adults who are looking to replace missing teeth turn to our Pasadena, CA, dentist, Dr. Jerry Johnson, for this treatment for a number of reasons. Here are just some of the unique benefits that dental implants offer:

A lifelong restoration

One of the biggest factors that goes into determining the best tooth replacement option for a patient is the longevity of a false tooth. The implant itself is made from titanium, an incredibly strong and long-lasting metal. This means that once the implant is placed and the restoration is complete, a patient could end up having this tooth for the rest of their life without ever needing to replace it.

A durable tooth that mimics natural teeth

You’re going to be hard-pressed to find another tooth replacement option that comes as close to real teeth as a dental implant. After all, once the post is placed into the jawbone, it naturally fuses together with bone and tissue, effectively replacing the absent tooth roots. This is the success behind implants and why they last so long.

Prevent bone loss

One of the major issues associated with tooth loss is that jawbone deterioration isn’t far behind. Once teeth fall out or are extracted, the jawbone no longer receives the stimulation that it needs from each tooth root. As a result, the bone begins to lose density. Significant bone loss can occur in just the first year of tooth loss, which is why patients missing one or more permanent teeth should turn to our Pasadena, CA, dentist for consultation and treatment as soon as possible. The implant will stimulate the jawbone in the same way as real tooth roots, preventing the bone from breaking down.

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.
