What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They are made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that fuses with the bone over time. Once the implant is fused to the bone, a crown or bridge is attached to it to create a new tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer many advantages over other tooth replacement options, such as dentures and bridges. They are more natural-looking and feeling, and they allow you to eat, speak, and smile normally. Dental implants also help to prevent bone loss and improve your overall oral health.


Here are some of the key benefits of dental implants:


      • Natural appearance and feel: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and they can be matched to the color and size of your surrounding teeth.
      • Improved function: Dental implants allow you to chew, speak, and smile normally

If you are contemplating dental implants, we invite you to connect with Dr. Seleem at Art of Smiles in Pasadena for a comprehensive consultation. During this consultation, we will assess your unique needs and determine if dental implants are the optimal solution for you.

Types of Dental Implants

There are three main types of dental implants:


Single tooth implants: These implants are used to replace a single missing tooth.


Multiple tooth implants: These implants are used to replace multiple missing teeth. They can be used to support a bridge or denture, or to place individual crowns on each implant.


Full mouth implants: These implants are used to replace all of the missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw.

Dental Implant Services at Art of Smiles

At Art of Smiles, we offer a variety of dental implant services to meet the needs of our patients:


Ceramic implants: Ceramic implants are a metal-free option that is often chosen by patients who are allergic to metal or who prefer a more natural-looking option.


Bone augmentation: Bone augmentation is a surgical procedure that may be necessary before dental implants can be placed, especially if the patient has lost a significant amount of bone due to gum disease or tooth loss.


Guided surgery: Guided surgery is a type of dental implant surgery that uses a computer-generated template to guide the placement of the implants. This helps to ensure that the implants are placed in the most accurate and optimal position possible.


Prettau dental implant bridges: Prettau bridges are a type of dental implant bridge that is made from a solid block of zirconia. Prettau bridges are known for their strength, durability, and natural appearance.

Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure is a multi-step process that typically takes several months to complete. Here is a general overview of the steps involved:

1. Consultation: The first step is to consult with a dentist or oral surgeon to discuss your candidacy for dental implants and to develop a treatment plan. During the consultation, your dentist will assess your overall health, oral health, and jawbone density.
2. Implant placement: Once you have been approved for dental implants, the surgeon will perform a minor surgery to place the implant in your jawbone. The implant is a small, titanium post that will fuse with your jawbone over time.
3. Osseointegration: After the implant has been placed, it will take several months for it to osseointegrate, or fuse with your jawbone. During this time, you will wear a temporary crown or denture to protect the implant site.
4. Abutment placement: Once the implant has osseointegrated, the surgeon will place an abutment on the implant. The abutment is a metal connector that will attach the implant to the crown.
5. Crown placement: The final step is to place the crown on the abutment. The crown is the artificial tooth that will be visible in your mouth.


The entire dental implant process can take anywhere from 5 to 8 months to complete. The exact timeline will vary depending on your individual needs and healing time.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about the dental implant procedure:

      • Dental implant surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation.
      • After the surgery, you may experience some swelling, discomfort, and bleeding. This is normal and should subside within a few days.
      • You will need to follow a soft diet for a few weeks after the surgery.
      • It is important to practice good oral hygiene after getting dental implants. This will help to keep you implants healthy and prevent problems such as peri-implantitis.
