Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent and safe solution to missing teeth. The implants used at Smile Vegas Dental are made of titanium, which is one of the most bio compatible materials on the market.

The Gold Standard
Dental Implants

Implants are designed to mimic and function just like your natural tooth, as it is placed entirely in your jawbone. The process may take four to six months for the implant to fuse itself with the surrounding bone.

Did you know that almost half of the population is missing a tooth? Furthermore, one in three adults 65 years or older have lost 6 or more teeth.

What is the process to getting dental implants?

  • Consultation: Evaluate medical history, x rays to see if you are a good candidate
  • CT scan: 3D imaging of your jawbone to plan the case digitally
  • Surgery: Implant procedure will be performed, followed by a 4 week follow up
    Final restoration: Final crown/tooth can be attached to the implant 4-6 months after placement of implant.

Why invest in dental implants at
Smile Vegas Dental

Not replacing a missing tooth right away can lead to issues such as:

  • Bone loss: when a tooth is removed, the bone that supported that tooth will begin to resorb or dissolve over time. This will create bony defects which can lead to changes in face shape and collapse of the cheeks which can make patients appear older.
  • Teeth shifting: teeth count on neighboring teeth to hold its position. Whenever a tooth is removed, the neighboring or opposing teeth will begin to move or tip into the missing space which can alter the way you bite. The shifting of the other teeth can also complicate replacing the missing tooth.
  • Difficulty of chewing and eating: chewing efficiency decreases when missing teeth

Who is a candidate?

Most patients are candidates for dental implants. The main factor in considering whether you are a good candidate is the amount of bone you have remaining after the tooth is gone. The longer you wait, the more the bone will absorb making it more difficult to replace the missing tooth

How long does the process take?

It varies based on patient’s medical history, bone density, and complexity of the case. On average it can take anywhere from four to six months for the implant to integrate into the bone. After the implant is integrated, it can take up to 3-4 weeks to get your final tooth placed onto the implant.

Do implants hurt?

The idea of pain after an implant weighs heavy on most patient’s mind. The good news is we find most patients have minimal pain after implant surgery! Patients are completely numb during the procedure where they do not feel anything, and we typically prescribe medications to help make the first 48-72 hours conformable for patients.

How do I care for my implant?

We tell our patients to treat your new implant tooth just like any other tooth you have in your mouth. Brush twice a day and floss daily. Make sure to keep up with your regular dental exams and cleanings.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants have a very high success rate and can last up to decades as long as you are staying up to date with your oral hygiene.

Only my first visit and I’m already very happy that I chose Smile Vegas Dental. They really show that they care about their patients. I’ve had a debilitating fear of the dentist, and they made sure that they walked me through every step of treatment to make me feel as comfortable as possible. Everyone here knows what they are doing and they all communicate very well with each other. I have already recommended this place to friends and family here. Amazing team!

I'm going to start off with this: I hate going to the dentist. I always have. I've had some awful experiences with dentists growing up, and I always put off going.In my 39 years of life, this was the first time ever that I had a truly pleasant experience at a dentist's office. There was definitely some pain and discomfort as expected, but it was minimal and the staff was overly caring and friendly. Constantly concerned with my comfort level. I have some more work to be done, but I feel so much more at ease about it than I did before I initially walked in the doors. I will definitely be returning to this dentist, and highly recommend others to go here as well.

I was looking for a new dentist that was closer to my house and found Smile Vegas Dental through my insurance provider. I was easily able to schedule my first appointment just within a few days through the dentist’s website. I normally dread going to the dentist and get anxiety with getting my teeth cleaned and other treatments. However, my first visit was great! From the front desk to all the dental staff, everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Jon took my dental x-rays and he informed me every step of the way of what he was doing, which I liked. Cassie was gentle in cleaning my sensitive teeth and gums as I didn’t feel any pain like I normally do. Dr. Najand was also very nice and after examining my teeth, he recommended what treatment plan was best for me. Overall, I had a wonderful and positive first time experience at Smile Vegas Dental and I’m happy to have found a dentist that truly cares about their patients.

Everyone was so friendly and I was amazed how thorough they were. I've never experienced this before with a dentist. They weren't rushed and made me feel important. A special thank you to Kathy. She was wonderful and took the time to explain every detail with me. All the dentists and technicians were great. I will recommend this facility to everyone.

Brand new patient here, I had just finished my orthodontic treatment and heard about this dental office through a friend. I came in for a cleaning and whitening and the whole experience was phenomenal. The staff are all super friendly and the dental work that was done was top notch. I'm extremely happy with my smile and would definitely recommend this office to everyone. Dunia was the dental hygienist that took care of me during my visit and she was fantastic!
