South Pasadena Dentist Offering Revolutionary Dental Implants

SOUTH PASADENA, CA--(Marketwired - October 30, 2014) - Dr. Ashish Vashi, a leader in South Pasadena dental cosmetic dentistry, has a revolutionary treatment solution for patients tired of living with slippery removable dentures or missing teeth.

At South Pasadena Smiles, Dr. Vashi can provide fully functional dental implants that will restore a patient's smile and chewing ability. The dental implants can be used for single teeth or for patients who need full-mouth restorations. Dr. Vashi's implants can support crowns, bridges or even dentures.

"Dental implants are one of the most revolutionary things to happen in dentistry in decades," said the South Pasadena restorative dentist. "Our dental implants are proven to be a reliable solution for patients who wear uncomfortable removable dentures or have gaps in the smile due to missing teeth."

Dr. Vashi uses titanium posts that act as roots to anchor the artificial teeth. The implants fuse to the jawbone and help prevent future bone deterioration.

Missing teeth is a widespread problem for our country's older population. The American Dental Association estimates that 25 percent of Americans 65 and older have none of their remaining teeth left. Living without natural teeth makes it difficult to chew and receive the proper nutrition.

"People hear dental implants and immediately think cosmetic dental surgery, but the truth is that dental implants go way beyond aesthetic dentistry and actually improve your quality of life and overall health," Dr. Vashi said.

Dr. Vashi's South Pasadena dental practice, located at 1928 Huntington Drive, South Pasadena, Calif., has been serving the community since 2003. He provides cosmetic dental procedures like Six Month Smiles, veneers, teeth whitening and Invisalign, as well as preventive care, dental implants, flexible dentures, and sleep appliances.

Dr. Vashi uses CEREC Technology, a 3-D imaging and in-office milling system, that allows him to design and then place permanent crowns, inlays and onlays in just one visit. The restorations are made from high-grade ceramic that is less prone to cracking, and there is no need for a temporary placement. CEREC restorations have become popular options for patients with missing fillings or broken teeth.

Dr. Vashi, a Los Angeles native, is a graduate of the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. He received an undergraduate degree in cell biology and biochemistry from the University of California in San Diego. After achieving his dental degree, Dr. Vashi gained hundreds of hours of continuing education in implant and cosmetic dentistry.  He has served on the San Gabriel Dental Society for more than eight years and was the board's youngest president. He participates in many community events and organizations including the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, Give Kids a Smile and Young and Healthy in Pasadena.

Dr. Vashi has served on the faculty of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, and he is currently a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, California Dental Association, American Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry.
