For people who are missing a complete upper or lower arch of teeth (or both arches), same-day dental implants can be a life-changing choice. Same-day implants allow you to fix the most common issues related to having missing teeth, including:
If you have been seeking a permanent tooth replacement that uses the latest advancements in dental technology, call (702) 834-8900 to set up an evaluation with Dr. Curry Leavitt. Dr. Leavitt uses TeethXpress® same-day dental implants and can show you amazing before and after photos of Las Vegas area adults who regained their smiles.
Not every person who comes to Red Rock Periodontics & Implantology is a candidate for same-day dental implant surgery. At your initial visit, Dr. Leavitt will determine if you qualify for this proven procedure. Some of the items the periodontist will consider are the bone density in your jaw and your health history.
When you have been approved for same day dental implants, you will be further examined. During this process, we will use the GALILEOS® cone beam digital x-ray machine. The GALILEOS® gives us an amazingly clear look into your mouth and helps the periodontist determine exactly where to place dental implant posts during surgery.
On the day of your surgery, you will come to our state-of-the-art office for the treatment. After providing you with the preferred method of sedation, Dr. Leavitt will strategically place several titanium-based dental implant posts in your mouth. These posts will serve as the anchors for a temporary prosthetic or bridge that can be immediately placed on the tops of the posts. In other words, you will have a full smile when you leave!
If you have a traditional removable denture, you know how frustrating it can be to make it look and feel like a part of your mouth. Not only are old-fashioned dentures notoriously tough to keep in place, but they limit your ability to eat what you want. A better solution is state-of-the-art All-on-4® dental implants, which allow you to have an implant-supported removable bridge that is securely anchored in place. By replacing your missing teeth with All-on-4® dental implants, you can gain all the benefits of having a full smile without dealing with traditional denture challenges.
Not every person who visits our high-tech Las Vegas periodontal facility will need a bone graft, but many do. These are typically people whose untreated gum disease has begun to destroy the hard tissues in their mouths, or those with missing teeth. Over time, the bacteria that fosters periodontal disease eats away at bone matter. By replacing the bone through a bone graft, we can restore your mouth to healthier levels.
After a successful bone grafting procedure, you may be a candidate for further treatments such as the placement of dental implants, which require sturdy support.
There are several keys to achieving a successful dental implantation. One of them is knowing exactly where to place the titanium-based dental implant posts in the jawbone. Dr. Curry Leavitt trusts the GALILEOS® cone beam and its incredible technology to provide insightful images that help guide his final placement decision.
The GALILEOS® cone beam takes incredibly detailed images of the soft and hard tissues in your mouth. These visuals pinpoint the ideal spots for surgical implantation. Without the GALILEOS® cone beam, Dr. Leavitt would have to rely on less accurate methods to determine where your bone mass is strongest to support a single dental implant, denture, bridge, or another prosthesis.
