What You Should Know Before Getting Dental Implants

Las Vegas Dentist Serving Summerlin, Spring Valley and Nearby Nevada Locations


Dental implant consultation in SummerlinAt Nevada Dental Esthetics, we understand that the decision to get dental implants can be significant. While you may have heard that they are an excellent option for replacing missing teeth, you are not entirely sure if they are right for you. Here are just a few of the things we want patients to know before moving forward with implants.

Implants Come With Significant Benefits

Implants arguably offer more benefits than any other method of tooth replacement. They are the closest you can get to natural teeth, allowing you the freedom of a functional and attractive smile.

Here is how implants measure up to alternatives like adhesive dentures:

  • Greater security (no slipping or clicking)
  • Improved eating ability and speech
  • Increased convenience (no need to remove or soak)
  • Unmatched longevity (can last a lifetime with proper care)

An implant is also the only option that stimulates the jawbone — much like the root of a tooth. This helps to prevent issues like bone loss and facial collapse.

Not All Implants Are Created Equal

There are many dental implants available today. Most of these options have different materials, surfaces, and technologies.

We choose to offer the Straumann® Dental Implant System at our practice. It is the most researched implant on the market. It also has a high-performance surface called SLActive®, which offers superior predictability and accelerated osseointegration. This translates to great results and a shorter healing period.

Getting Dental Implants Is a Process

Transforming a smile with dental implants does not happen overnight. It is a process, but one that is ultimately worth the result.

Implants are placed during a minor surgical procedure. After placement, you will need to wait 4 to 6 months for the implant to fully integrate with your jawbone. Once that happens, it is time to place your final restorations.
