By the time men and women reach the age of 44, most of them will have lost at least one tooth. Whether you are in need of a replacement for a single tooth, or for several missing teeth, Dr. David J. Trylovich, Dr. Ryan S. Gifford, Dr. Brian P. Mantor, and Dr. Gary D. Goaslind can help you understand the advanced dental procedures available in Las Vegas to meet your needs.
Replacing a Single Tooth
For the right candidates, the replacement of a single tooth can be as simple as getting a dental implant. Over a series of months, the site of the new tooth is surgically prepped so the permanent structure that looks like a natural tooth can be put into place. While it is possible for patients to opt for a dental bridge to replace one tooth, having a tooth implant in Las Vegas is considered to be a better solution for those whose cases are conducive to this type of long lasting treatment.
Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth
People who have multiple missing teeth can also receive individual dental implants. However, depending upon where the teeth are located (such as right next to one another, scattered around the mouth, in the back of the mouth, in the front), other options may be more beneficial.
These options can include implant bridges and implant supported dentures. Implant bridges can replace two or more consecutive missing teeth and rely on support from implant posts. Implant supported dentures can replace an entire arch of teeth through the use of three or more implants placed at strategic locations within the mouth. Implant supported dentures are favored over traditional dentures due to the stability and permanence they offer patients.
