At Summerhills Dental, we are proud to offer dental implants in Las Vegas, NV, a state-of-the-art solution for restoring your smile to its natural beauty and function.

Why Dental Implants?

  • The Gold Standard for Tooth Replacement: Dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth, mimicking the structure of natural teeth with a titanium post that integrates with your jawbone, topped with a dental crown that beautifully matches your natural teeth.
  • Preserve Your Jawbone: Dental implants stimulate and preserve your jawbone that helps retain your facial structure and prevents bone loss.
  • Enhanced Quality of Life: With dental implants, you have restored oral functions like chewing and speaking without worrying about your teeth slipping or moving. They feel just like natural teeth!
  • Long-Lasting and Reliable: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective, long-term investment in your oral health and overall well-being.

The Dental Implant Process

  • Consultation and Planning: Our Las Vegas dentist will discuss your options during a consultation and whether dental implants are right for you. We use advanced imaging technology to plan your treatment precisely.
  • Implant Placement: The dental implant, a small titanium post, is surgically placed into your jawbone, where it will serve as a new root for your missing tooth.
  • Healing and Integration: Over the next few months, the implant will fuse with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration.
  • Placing the Crown: Once your implant has integrated with your jawbone, a custom-made crown will be attached to the implant, completing your smile restoration.
  • Aftercare: We will provide you with aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up visits to ensure your implant is functioning beautifully and you are completely satisfied with your new smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants right for me?
Dental implants are suitable for most adults with good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, injury or other reasons. A thorough evaluation by our dental team will determine if dental implants are the best option for you, taking into account factors like jawbone density and overall health.

How long does the entire dental implant process take?
The dental implant process can vary from patient to patient, typically ranging from three to nine months. This timeline includes the initial consultation, the implant surgery, the healing period for osseointegration, and the placement of the crown.

Is the dental implant procedure painful?
Most patients report that the discomfort is less than they expected, and many have described the procedure as less painful than a tooth extraction. Local anesthesia is used during the surgery to minimize discomfort, and post-operative discomfort can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. We will also provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

How do I care for my dental implants?
Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. With proper care, your implants can last a lifetime. We will guide you through the best practices for maintaining your dental implants and overall oral health during your follow-up visits.

What is the success rate of dental implants?
Dental implants have a typical success rate of over 95%. Factors that contribute to the success of the implant include the location of the implant in the jaw and proper oral hygiene practices. Our experienced team uses the latest techniques and materials to maximize the success rate of your implant.
