SOUTH PASADENA, CA - Dr. John Chu, dentist in South Pasadena, continues educational courses to stay on top of the cutting edge advancements in dentistry. The pursuit of lifelong learning - whether to enrich lives, follow a new dream, or simply challenge them, ongoing training in dentistry is more important than ever before.
Dental continuing education is essential for anyone working within the dental field. As in the medical field, technological advances in the field come at a rapid-fire pace, and staying abreast of the latest research, tools and treatment methods is crucial, such as new advancements for implants in South Pasadena.
"I am happy to continue to complete continuing education courses every year, with my recent focus being mini dental implants for replacing missing teeth in narrow spaces. These courses allow me to have access to the latest diagnostic, preventative and treatment methods, which helps me to provide my patients with the best care available," said Dr. John Chu, South Pasadena dentist.
Mini dental implants are simple, and gentle, and are used for placement within narrow spaces. For the best results, mini dental implants may be used for small teeth and incisors. Additionally, mini dental implants may be best for patients who require stabilization of lower jaw dentures, pre-molar teeth, or a missing tooth that was located in a narrow area.
Mini dental implants are approximately half the width of traditional South Pasadena implants and are not fully submerged. If implant failure occurs, the small size of the area means grafting is not necessary. The procedure for mini implants is a much less invasive procedure than conventional dental implants. For this reason, Dr. Chu, cosmetic dentist in South Pasadena, can typically complete the procedure in one, easy visit.

Dr. John Chu looks forward to utilizing mini dental implants in the successful restoration of a patient who has missing teeth.
