Our board-certified surgeons offer several implant options, including:
An estimated 3 million people have a dental implant, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Patients who are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of their teeth can enjoy implants as their preferred tooth replacement option.
While implants can be placed at any age, it is not recommended for pediatric patients in general. Most dental health professionals recommend waiting until a young patient’s jaws have finished developing before undergoing this treatment.

Patients and oral surgeons alike love dental implants! Here’s why:
A dental implant has three parts: the post, the abutment, and the crown. During the procedure, your oral surgeon will surgically place the implant post into the jaw bone. The post is made of medical-grade titanium. Over time, the post fuses with the jaw bone. This fusion creates a secure foundation to support one tooth or many artificial teeth.
It takes several weeks for the post to fuse with the jaw bone. You may be given a temporary crown to wear during the healing period. Once your oral surgeon has confirmed the implant is successful, the permanent crown can be placed. This crown is custom-made to blend in with your smile.
There are many differences between dental implants and removable dentures. Cheaper alternatives, like removable dentures and bridges, can be uncomfortable. They must be replaced every few years and cleaned using special rinses. Removable options do not fuse to the jaw bone and prevent bone loss, leading to costly and sometimes extensive bone restorative treatments.
Dental implants have become a popular tooth replacement option since they replace the whole tooth, root and all. They can last a lifetime with proper oral care. With dental implants, you can enjoy the permanence and ease of your replacement teeth without any moving parts or discomfort.
The cost of your dental implant treatment depends on how many and what kind of implants you need, if you require bone grafting, your choice of anesthesia, and your insurance coverage. We will cover all of these with you during the consultation, as well as discuss your options for financing and payment plans.

Dentures are another option for replacing missing teeth, but they only restore the appearance of your smile. Dentures rest on the bony ridge in the mouth and do not provide the same durability as natural teeth or dental implants. Many patients who wear dentures often seek a more comfortable, long-term solution and turn to dental implants.
Dental implants can restore full dentures through full-arch restoration, a treatment that uses several implants to support a fixed prosthesis. Partial dentures can be replaced with implant-supported bridges or multiple implants. If you’re looking for a denture replacement in Las Vegas, NV, our oral surgeons are here to help. Contact us for a consultation, and we will explore your denture replacement options.
Chances are, if you are healthy enough to undergo a routine tooth extraction, you are healthy enough to receive a dental implant. Additional procedures, such as a bone graft, may be required to support the implant.
Candidates need healthy gums to undergo dental implant surgery. Healthy gum tissue is important for adequate healing. Therefore, periodontal disease needs to be treated before the surgical procedure can take place.
Oral surgeons are specialists when it comes to procedures involving the teeth, mouth, head, neck, and jaws. They have undergone years of training beyond dental school to understand general medicine, emergency medicine, and how to administer anesthesia safely.
Some insurance plans cover the cost of dental implant treatment. We work with many insurance plans and will be happy to inform you if your plan is in our network.
There will be several weeks of healing in the jaw while the implant post fuses with the jaw bone. Please be sure to follow all pre- and post-operative instructions that your oral surgeon provided to you. On average, this process takes between 3 and 6 months.
It's easy to care for dental implants. Patients should practice good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and visiting their dentist regularly.
Dental implants are seen as the ideal tooth replacement solution for many patients. Patients enjoy how dental implants are fixed in place, do not require messy adhesives, and present a natural look. However, many patients prefer removable dentures for their ease of use and the ability to take them out when they want.
