For a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Scott R. Adishian may recommend dental implants in Pasadena and La Quinta, California. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the missing tooth and its root. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post and a dental restoration, like a dental crown or a dental bridge. The implant post fuses with the jawbone and the dental restoration is attached to the implant post.

What can dental implants do for you and your smile?
– Improve your self-esteem and the appearance of your smile
– Improve your speech
– Allow you to eat properly
– Improve your comfort
– Improve your oral health
– Provide a durable and long-lasting replacement for a lost tooth

Can anyone get dental implants?
To have dental implants placed, you need to have healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to support the implant. In addition to this, you must be committed to proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. Talk to our dentist to see if dental implants are right for you.

How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the same way that you care for your natural teeth. Brush them twice a day and floss them once a day, along with your natural teeth. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. Be sure to visit our office at least twice a year for your professional teeth cleaning.
