Dental implants can be a life-changing alternative to traditional restorations, which often slip or slide, causing discomfort and negatively affecting your self-confidence. With implant-supported restorations, these problems simply do not exist. This is because dental implants anchor dental bridges, dental crowns, and dentures securely to the jawbone, resulting in restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
If you live in Las Vegas, Summerlin, or a nearby community, dental implants of exceptional quality and durability are within convenient driving distance at the practice of Jason L. Downey, D.D.S.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are among the most advanced treatments available in restorative dentistry. Implants are the most sophisticated answer to an age-old problem of tooth loss caused by injury, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Instead of using natural teeth to support a replacement tooth, a dental implant fixes replacement teeth into the gums by recreating the tooth root. This artificial root is a tiny titanium post that is inserted into the missing tooth’s bone socket. The jawbone grows around the post, securing it firmly in place as though it were a natural root.
Once the implant has taken root, usually three to six months after implantation surgery, Dr. Downey attaches a natural-looking replacement tooth to the post.
