Implants? Crowns? Veneers? Invisible braces? As dental technology and services have expanded in the Las Vegas area, so has the vocabulary. Doctor Touraj Habashi, considered one of the best dentists in Nevada, has skill with cosmetic and ideal restorative care.
In the past, if a patient in Las Vegas had a missing tooth or a severely damaged tooth, Nevada dentists regularly suggested dental bridges or dentures, because they were the best options at the time. These days, unprecedented dental implants have proven to be superior to dental bridges for most Las Vegas patients. They can also replace dentures or anchor dentures for some patients.
A tooth implant provides many vital advantages over a dental bridge or dentures:
Longevity – Dental implants are durable and permanent, meaning with proper care they can last ten years or more.
Seamless – Made with the same shape, size, and color of the original tooth, the implant blends in seamlessly with all the other teeth. If the original tooth had aesthetic problems, these can often be repaired with the implant crown.
Function – A dental implant operates just like an original tooth and allows normal eating and speaking.
Convenience – Unlike dentures, no adhesives, rinsing, or removal is required.
Independent – Like the missing tooth, the dental implant is treated individually. No injury to neighboring teeth is required, as is with dental bridges. This independence allows nearby teeth to remain intact. Cleaning is easier than with dental bridges which can require the complicated threading of your floss under the denture.
Let’s discuss the tooth implant method:
If you are interested in getting a tooth implant, call Summer Dental – Kids|Adults|Braces at 702-852-2829 to schedule a tooth implant consultation. Doctor Habashi practices in the greater Las Vegas area from Summer Dental – Kids|Adults|Braces in Las Vegas. Dr. Habashi will carry out an exam, take x-rays and counsel with you. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, the process will begin.
Plaster dental impressions of both upper and lower plates will be taken. Doctor Habashi will exactly place the titanium implant, which looks like a dark screw, into the bone of your jaw. Over the next couple of months, the bone and implant will bond together to form a new root for your new tooth.
After the necessary time has passed for bonding of the bone and implant, an extension (called an abutment) is placed on top of the initial implant post. This post extension is then capped with a temporary tooth. Meanwhile, the team of professionals at our lab will tailor your new, permanent crown.
Dr. Habashi will then put the pleasing permanent crown on top of the full post. This tooth will match your other teeth to create a wonderful new smile. You will find that the comfort is the same as your natural teeth, to the point that you may even forget which tooth is the implant. The upkeep is the same, with brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups necessary.
If you want to ascertain if a tooth implant is right for you or desire specifics about smile transformations, call Summer Dental – Kids|Adults|Braces for more specifics. We look forward to meeting you!
