Las Vegas area professional offers implant dentistryPosted By Dr. Christopher Lim
Dr. Christopher Lim of Hillside Dental in Las Vegas offers many solutions for restorative care. Missing teeth can be replaced in one of three ways: dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants. When patients are seeking a permanent restoration that functions and looks like a natural tooth, they often choose implant dentistry.
Implant dentistry is the use of implants not only for replacing a single tooth, but also for stabilizing dentures and anchoring dental bridges. These restorations are made of titanium and look like small screws. The dentist will place them into the jawbone during oral surgery. This is done with precise placement and after x-rays have been completed to ensure patients have sufficient jawbone for successful placement.
Dr. Christopher Lim encourages patients to consider dental implants. They are more costly upfront, but may be covered in part or in full by dental insurance plans. The out-of-pocket costs remaining may be financed with our office to ensure treatment is attainable. The value of dental implants is immeasurable, especially considering they often last a lifetime. Decades of use make the initial cost a wonderful investment in the smile.
