With dental implants, patients who are missing one or more teeth can enjoy a restored smile that looks and feels completely natural. And, as an added benefit, you can have your entire implant procedure—both the implant placement stage and the restoration stage—completed by Dr. Polley right in our Summerlin office.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants work by replacing your missing root as well any teeth you may be missing. It’s this prosthetic root that will give your restoration its firm foundation, as, over time, it bonds with your jawbone, promoting bone growth. How many of these prosthetic roots or implants you’ll receive will depend on how many teeth you’ll be restoring.
After your dental implants have had time to bond with your jawbone, all that’s left to do is come back to Dr. Polley’s Summerlin office to have your crown, bridge, or denture restored. After that, you’ll be good to go, with a stronger, more functional smile that could last for the rest of your life.
If you’d like to learn more about dental implants and how they can change your life, give our Summerlin office a call today. Not everyone is a candidate, so if you’ve been thinking about implants, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Polley. We’d love to meet with you and discuss your concerns and your options.
