Top-Rated Dental Implants in Las Vegas, NV
The Science of Dental Implants
When teeth are removed or are missing, the now missing tooth root can no longer stimulate the jawbone below. This can lead to jawbone deterioration and the eventual loss of bone and other oral health and facial complications. Dental implants, which consist of a titanium root and a crown, replace missing teeth with a permanent solution that helps to retain optimal jawbone health. Dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement solution as they not only strengthen the jawbone, but help patients fully retain the function of teeth in speaking, eating, and speaking.
Implants themselves are placed through surgery, and through a healing process these titanium posts actually fuze to the jawbone, creating a permanent and stable hold. After this healing process has occurred, a crown is then placed on top of the tooth that is matched to the rest of your natural teeth.
Recent Advances in Implant Technology
Dental implants are possible due to modern advancements in dental technology that allow our team at Las Vegas Oral Surgery to complete these procedures and treatments with minimal discomfort and tremendous final results. Our veteran team leverages treatment protocols and techniques that help patients achieve the best possible final treatment results, and we also aim to support dental appliances such and bridges and dentures with the fewest number of dental implants possible. In the time between when your implants are placed and when your final crowns are received, your dentist will provide prosthetic crowns that act as temporary teeth until your final crowns are placed.
A Versatile Tooth Replacement Solution
Dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement solution as they help to retain the full function of the teeth and jaw as well as the underlying jawbone structure, making for a permanent and effective long-term solution to missing teeth. Dental implants can be leveraged in a variety of treatment circumstances:
Bridgework can be help permanently in place with the help of only a few dental implants in the right locations in the mouth. Bridges can often be placed without removing any teeth, and these teeth are simply ground down to make room for the bridge. In some cases, however, where patients are missing teeth, implants will be placed in these locations in order to further support these appliances.
Partial dentures can also be supported with dental implants. These are a more convenient option for patients who prefer removable appliances as opposed to a permanent solution.
Full sets of dentures can be supported by dental implants as well, with only a few dental implants being able to support full sets of dentures. Some dental patients have come to prefer dentures over other tooth replacement options, whereas other patients prefer full sets of implants themselves.
Full Sets of Implants
Dental implants are a highly reliable, safe, and time-tested tooth replacement solution that allows patients to replace adult teeth permanently. Dental implants, again, are permanent, and therefore eliminate the need for removable dentures which some patients find to be uncomfortable. Dental implants are a long-term and permanent tooth replacement solution that will last a lifetime when taken care of.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Overall, dental implants are a highly patient-endorsed tooth replacement solution that help patients achieve full and permanent tooth replacements that patients traditionally prefer to dentures and other removable tooth replacement options.
