Dental implant options are more accessible than ever before for patients who are missing one or more teeth. In years past, there was only one type of dental implant and many patients with missing teeth found they were not candidates for this type of permanent tooth replacement. But now, dental implant options come in different sizes and types, giving more patients more choices for replacing lost or damaged teeth.
ABC Dental Implant Center of Las Vegas is a leader in permanent tooth replacement. Dr. Kevin Khorshid works with patients every day to find the best dental implant options for patients, even those who have been told by other dentists that they aren’t candidates for dental implants. His commitment to restoring smiles and exceeding his patients’ expectations has made him one of the most popular dentists in the Las Vegas area.
Dental Implants For Single Tooth Replacement
If you’ve lost a single tooth, you may not be in a hurry to replace it, especially if the tooth is in the back of the mouth or another less obvious location. But one lost or severely decayed tooth only leads to more dental problems down the road. Replacing even a single missing tooth is important to your overall dental health.
Dental implants act as replacement teeth. Like your natural teeth, they are made up of a “root,” a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw, and a crown, a natural-looking replacement tooth. The post behaves like a natural tooth root in both form and function. It anchors the crown into place and helps you to maintain the mass of your jaw bone, which is critical to keeping your remaining teeth in place. When you receive a single dental implant, nobody will be able to tell by looking at you that you’ve lost a tooth, and you will keep your remaining teeth intact for much longer.
Dental Implants For Multiple Tooth Replacement
If decay, illness, or injury has caused you to lose more than one tooth, dental implants can help. Even if you lost the teeth a long time ago, and your jaw mass has begun to deteriorate, Dr. Khorshid may be able to fit you with smaller implants or specialized implants. These types of dental implants don’t require as much jaw support as traditional implants.
Multiple implants can be placed side by side, or they can be used to replace single teeth in various locations in your mouth. You will be able to eat and speak just like you did before you lost your teeth, because dental implants mimic the function of natural teeth, and can withstand almost the same amount of pressure as natural teeth.
Dental Implants To Replace All Teeth
If you’ve lost all your teeth, or are in danger of losing all of your teeth, you may think that conventional dentures are your only option for tooth replacement. Many people opt not to wear traditional dentures because they can be uncomfortable and awkward to wear. But dental implants can be used to give you permanent dentures that won’t slip on your gums.
This type of permanent tooth replacement is called “All On Four.” Dr. Khorshid will place four dental implants into your arch, and permanently affix a full dental bridge to the implants. The implants anchor the bridge into place, allowing patients to eat and speak like they did when they had their natural teeth. All on Four implants also allow you to eat more foods, because they can withstand more pressure than conventional dentures. Patients who have not yet been fitted for dentures, or who currently wear dentures are candidates for the All on Four dental implant method.
