Dental Implant Surgery Las Vegas, NV - Titanium Tooth Root Replacement

Restoring the smile after tooth loss is done beautifully at Hillside Dental! Las Vegas, NV area patients are welcome to book an appointment with Dr. Christopher Lim to discuss treatment with dental implant surgery.

What is a dental implant?

The best description of a dental implant is a titanium tooth root replacement. Titanium will not rust or corrode, and is biocompatible with the body. The implant is placed into the bone of the jaw during surgery and stimulates the process of osseointegration. Osseointegration is the growth of bone in the jaw that holds the implant in place. This is what gives the implant the strength and stability it needs to function at its best. The implant is then restored over the top to blend in with the smile.

How is a dental implant restored?

The implant can be restored in one of three ways:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures

Who is a candidate for dental implant surgery?

Prior to starting surgery, it is important that the dentist makes sure the patient is a good candidate for treatment. Patients need to have enough bone structure to hold the implant firmly in place and stimulate osseointegration. X-rays are taken during the evaluation to determine if this is possible. Patients without enough bone may want to consider alternative restorations or speak to their dentist about the possibility of having preparatory services such as bone grafting. This can take time, but ensures successful surgery and placement.
