About Dental Implants
Implant dentistry is a long-lasting and effective treatment for replacing one lost tooth or several and restore your beautiful smile. MINT dentistry is pleased to use dental implants with custom restorations for our patients in Pasadena, TX who want a radiant smile that looks and feels like their own teeth. An implant is a post that's placed in your jawbone (performed by a board-certified oral surgeon) to mimic the lost root of your tooth. The implanted post or posts will be connected to a restoration (crown, bridge, or dentures) for a result that is natural looking and lasts for years. To replace one or more teeth, contact MINT dentistry in Pasadena, TX. During your consultation at our modern dental practice, you will learn about our commitment to help you reach your cosmetic goals while restoring optimal oral health.

"I don't usually provide reviews on Google but I think this is worth mentioning. I originally saw a different dentist at the Pasadena location earlier this year. When my procedure was scheduled, it was with a different provider which made me nervous. Dr. Je and the staff at this location took extra precaution making sure I was comfortable moving forward with the procedure. Dr. Je showed patience and understanding ensuring I was informed during the entire procedure relieving my anxiety."- D.B. / Google / Jul 25, 2023

Best Candidates for Dental Implants
The dental professionals at MINT dentistry frequently recommend implants along with a crown, bridge, or dentures to restore your smile if you are missing one tooth or several. You may be a candidate for implant dentistry if you already have a traditional restoration but don't like its appearance or maintenance. At your consultation at our office, we will assess your jawbone and gums to decide if you are a good candidate for implant dentistry. You are probably not a good candidate for implants if you have a periodontal condition, are pregnant, or use tobacco products.
What to Expect
Prior to scheduling your appointment for implant placement, we will decide if you require jawbone or gum grafting. If you do, these treatments will be completed before your implant surgery is scheduled. When you are approved for implants, our team will schedule your implant placement surgery. To begin your implant surgery, our staff will show you to the procedure room so you can being to relax in the massaging treatment chair, where we will give you Beats headphones and MINT sunglasses. Once you are settled in, your doctor will administer your anesthesia and, if needed, sedation. Then, your board-certified oral surgeon will make the needed incision(s) in your mouth and fit the metal implant post(s) in your jaw. We will repeat this process until all implants are in place. Finally, your doctor will close your gums, leaving the top of the implant visible over the top of your gumline. During the next several months, your post(s) will start to integrate with your gums and jawbone. While this occurs, a temporary crown, bridge, or denture will be placed to cover the implant(s). When you're healed, we will connect your custom crown, bridge, or denture to the implant(s), so you can begin to enjoy your newly restore smile.
After oral surgery, you will probably have some inflammation in your mouth and lower face as well as some bleeding, bruising, and discomfort. It's normal for the symptoms to be temporary, but if you have concerns or lasting symptoms, please contact us. We may write you a prescription for antibiotics and/or pain medication plus detailed instructions, like dietary recommendations, to speed your recovery. As soon as your implant(s) has integrated and your crown, bridge, or denture has been connected, you need to maintain a good dental care routine at home, which includes flossing and brushing every day. We may ask you to schedule follow-up appointments so we can monitor your progress. MINT dentistry encourages you to keep attending annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings to maintain the health and appearance of your restorations and natural teeth for a long time.
The MINT Commitment
If you have dental insurance, part of the cost of your oral surgery and custom restoration may be paid. We will speak to your insurance provider to clarify your policy and determine your remaining bill. In your initial consultation with your team, we will discuss payment methods we accept and we can give you information on low-interest medical financing. At MINT dentistry, we are dedicated to making sure all our patients have sexy teeth. If you don't have insurance, ask us for more information on the MINT Discount Plan, which can make it easier to afford restorative procedures.
