Las Vegas Implant Dentist Can Reboot Your Smile
If you are looking to replace lost teeth, a Las Vegas implant dentist can help you regain a full, comfortable set of teeth that look and feel natural. Dental implants are considered to be a preferred option for tooth replacement and are viewed as the best method for replacing lost teeth over fixed bridges and partial dentures. If you are:
- a denture or bridge wearer
- missing one or more teeth
- facing tooth extraction
you may be a good candidate for dental implants. To find out, set up your consultation with implant dentist Dr. Peter Balle in Las Vegas, NV.
Dr. Balle has extensive experience as a dental implant dentist and can provide you with the information you need to decide if dental implants are right for you. Your exclusive consultation and examination will provide the insight for us to determine whether implants may be your best option for replacing missing teeth in the long term. Since dental implants are placed in the jaw bone, they are highly successful and continue to be an attractive alternative to other tooth replacement procedures.
Why Dental Implants?
Statistics tell us that an estimated 69 percent of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost at least a single tooth to decay, gum disease, or injury. By the time these adults reach the age of 74, 26 percent have lost all of their permanent teeth. These are startling statistics! We seek to do whatever we can to assist our patients in achieving optimum oral health and a radiant smile.
Today’s dental technologies and advances offer several alternatives to procedures like dentures or fixed bridges. Both of these tooth replacement procedures are linked to an increased risk of complications over time. Wearing dentures can cause bone loss which takes its toll on the facial structure and can also alter the fit of dentures. Poorly fitting dentures can make embarrassing clicking sounds when the wearer is eating or drinking and even talking. One of the key issues with fixed bridges is that adjacent teeth need to be ground down, and this process can make healthy teeth more susceptible to damage. Still, both of these procedures are considered to be safe and viable methods of tooth replacement.
The latest research shows that dental implants provide better long term results for replacing missing teeth. Titanium implants are fused directly into the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. These implants do not slip or make embarrassing noises, and they can be difficult to tell apart from your natural teeth.
Las Vegas implant dentists, Balle & Associates, have helped may patients achieve their goal of regaining the feel and look of their own natural smile, while also achieving better long term dental and oral health. Let Dr. Balle and his team help you achieve your goal of permanent tooth replacement.
