At Las Vegas OMS, our mission is to help our patients achieve a healthy, beautiful, and complete smile. We believe a beautiful smile is about more than just functional and health benefits – it provides a boost of confidence and self esteem that greatly impacts a person’s quality of life. Consequently, if a patient loses teeth, it can harm their confidence and state of mind. Dental implants are an ideal way to restore missing teeth, stop functional problems from missing teeth, and restore the self esteem that comes with a complete smile.
In addition to harming the aesthetic appeal of a smile, missing teeth can slow down or stop the production of healthy gum tissue and jawbone mass. Tooth roots are designed to fit into and entwine themselves with these tissues, so when a tooth is lost, the root – and consequently the stimulus for healthy jaw and gum tissue production – is lost with it. After that, the gums and bone start to recede, and over time this recession can also affect other teeth, potentially causing them to loosen or fall out themselves.
A titanium dental implant combined with a prosthetic crown replaces the gap in a smile while also helping to preserve the mouth, giving the jawbone and gum tissues something to latch onto and grow around. This process, called osseointegration, helps to stop gum and jawbone recession, preserve the bite pattern and strength, and prevent teeth from around in the mouth. Dental implants provide an effective, permanent solution to missing teeth that prevent further damage to the smile, helping to restore any patient’s confidence, self esteem, and peace of mind.
