Dental implants are a modern innovation that allows us to replace your missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function just like natural teeth. No one will be able to tell you’ve lost teeth–and you won’t notice the loss, either. You’ll be able to smile with confidence, speak clearly, and eat all the foods you enjoyed with your natural teeth. And there will be no additional hassle, either–just brush, floss, and make your regular dental appointments.
They are the closest thing we have to growing a replacement tooth. If you are looking to replace your missing teeth or get rid of your dentures, please call (702) 873-0324 today to schedule a consultation in Summerlin at the office of implant dentist, Dr. James B. Polley.

Understanding the Dental Implant Procedure
If you are unclear about how the dental implant process works, we have provided a full page of detailed information on the dental implant procedure. It provides in-depth answers to questions like:

Recovery from dental implant surgery is typically easy, although some complications can arise.
Depending on the details of your procedure, they can typically be completed within three months, but for some people it may take a year. You’ll learn why.
Living with Dental Implants
What is life like with them? Pretty much like life with natural teeth. That’s what we mean when we say dental implant maintenance is just like for natural teeth. Learn more about:
Cleaning your dental implants is like cleaning your natural teeth. A little bit of extra care to help protect your investment won’t hurt, either.
Most people will just keep their normal appointment schedule, but some people might need to see their dentist more often.
We’ll check your implants the way we check natural teeth, unless there’s a sign of problems. If problems arise, we will do a visual inspection, periodontial probing, check for implant moving, X-Rays, and more if needed.
You should look to make sure the dental crown isn’t discolored or chipped. Make sure the gums around the implant are the same color as around your other teeth, hopefully a healthy pink. Look out for pus-filled sores on your gums near the implant.
