See Why Las Vegas Patients Are Choosing Dental Implants
Dr. Tomaro completes many procedures for dental implants in Las Vegas NV. Dental Implants are a great way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They have a natural look and feel, and they can last a lifetime if proper care is taken.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants consist of a titanium post and a dental crown. The post is surgically infused with your jawbone and then a dental crown is placed on top to give it a natural look. Typically this procedure requires multiple dental visits.
How do you know if you are a candidate for dental implants?
Unfortunately, dental implants are not for everyone. If you are interested in dental implants, the first step is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. Your dentist will need to take x-rays and CT scans to ensure that the dental implant surgery will be a success.
The x-rays and CT scans will also help your dentist to determine if any other procedures are necessary. If you do not have enough bone structure, you may need to get a bone graft in order to replace the missing bone.
How long will it take?
Getting dental implants in Dr. Tomaro's Las Vegas office typically takes about 45 minutes to complete the surgical portion of placing the titanium screw. It is usually a fairly short process to do this, however, in order to move on to the next step you must give your mouth time to heal.
While dental implants are often considered more of a financial commitment from the patient, they can end up saving you money in the long run because they have the ability to last a lifetime.
