What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a type of dental restoration that are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. They are considered to be one of the most advanced and effective tooth replacement options available today.
At their core, dental implants are essentially small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it fuses with the surrounding bone tissue over a period of several months, creating a sturdy and durable base for the replacement tooth or teeth that will be attached to it.
Dental implants are a popular option for people who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or other issues. They offer several benefits over other types of tooth replacement options, including:
Durability: Dental implants are designed to be long-lasting and can often last for decades or even a lifetime with proper care.
Natural-looking appearance: The replacement teeth that are attached to dental implants are typically custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth, creating a natural-looking smile.
Improved oral health: Dental implants help to preserve the surrounding teeth and prevent bone loss that can occur when a tooth is missing. This can help to maintain the integrity of your jawbone and improve your overall oral health.
Improved comfort and function: Dental implants are more comfortable and functional than other types of tooth replacement options, as they allow you to eat and speak normally without worrying about slippage or discomfort.
Types Of Dental Implants We Offer
here are several types of dental implants that can be used to replace missing teeth, whether you need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire smile.
For single tooth replacement, an endosteal implant is typically used. This type of implant is shaped like a small screw and is surgically inserted into the jawbone where it fuses with the bone tissue over time. Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, a custom-made replacement tooth is attached to the implant.
For multiple teeth replacement, an implant-supported bridge is often used. This involves placing two or more implants into the jawbone and attaching a bridge to the implants. The bridge is custom-made to match the shape and color of your natural teeth, providing a strong and durable solution for missing teeth.
For full arch or entire smile replacement, implant-supported dentures or full arch bridges may be used. This involves placing several implants into the jawbone and attaching a custom-made denture or bridge to the implants. Implant-supported dentures and full arch bridges offer a more stable and comfortable alternative to traditional dentures, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
At Lone Mountain Dental, we offer a range of dental implant options for single tooth, multiple teeth, and entire smile replacement. Our experienced team of dentists and oral surgeons will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific goals and needs. Whether you need to replace one tooth or an entire smile, we are committed to providing high-quality care and personalized attention to each and every patient.

REPLACING MISSING TEETH WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS
The ability for a replacement tooth to look, feel, and function like a natural tooth belongs to dental implants alone. Other tooth replacement methods, such as bridges and full and partial dentures, provide satisfactory results, but only dental implants replace an entire tooth, from the implant screw that mimics tooth roots to the final crown that is seen above your gumline.
The implant screw is made of titanium which has the capacity to fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Once we have expertly placed the implant, it begins fusing with bone and tissue, forming a solid attachment. We place the final restoration when the healing period of a few months is complete.
DENTAL IMPLANTS PROMOTE JAW HEALTH
In addition to looking like natural teeth, dental implants function like natural teeth, from the artificial root to that of the crown. A secure implant helps to keep neighboring teeth stabilized and in place.
One of the biggest advantages of getting dental implants is the way in which the titanium post becomes part of your jawbone and prevents it from deteriorating, a common result of tooth loss. Implants allow you to chew which provides movement that bulks up the jaw, keeping it healthy.
PLACING DENTAL IMPLANTS—HOW IT’S DONE
At Lone Mountain Dental, we take care of every step in the dental implant process. We use advanced technology to take impressions that guide us as we precisely place the implant and then carefully craft the final crown. This allows us to oversee each part of the treatment and ensure you’re receiving superior care throughout the entire dental procedure.
First, we place the implant (a small titanium screw) in your jawbone. We use computer-guided implant surgery which ensures the highest level of dentistry: extreme accuracy and optimal, long-term results.
Next, we wait for the bone and tissue around the implant to heal.
Upon completion of the healing period, we secure an abutment to the implant which will connect to the final restoration. Finally, we place the final crown, bridge, or denture.
A COMFORTABLE, ANXIETY-FREE IMPLANT EXPERIENCE
Our dentists are highly skilled and trained in placing implants, so the patient experience of having an implant placed isn’t much different from having a tooth pulled. We’ve found that the combination of our dentists’ gentle touch, and our staff’s compassionate care have set our practice in a league of our own, with experiences much more comfortable than expected.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR DENTAL IMPLANTS
This long-term solution for replacing one or more missing teeth can last a lifetime. One way to ensure the longevity of your implants is to keep your gums healthy. Implant failure most often results from gum disease which causes the supporting bone to deteriorate.
In addition to keeping an eye on your gums, brush and floss your teeth daily just like you care for your natural teeth. And attend your regular checkups and dental cleanings every six months.
CANDIDATES FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS IN LAS VEGAS
The most important qualification for getting a dental implant is having adequate bone mass in your jaw to support the implant post. We use 3D cone beam technology to evaluate your jawbone when you come in for your initial consultation.
