31Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you shy away from social situations or work opportunities because of your incomplete smile?

Missing teeth threaten more than your self-esteem. Missing teeth are also health threats because they can increase your risk for:

Poor Bite and Crooked Smile | Your remaining teeth are likely to try and compensate for the space left by the missing teeth. They will shift and move, leaving you with a crooked smile and a misaligned bite. A poor bite is uncomfortable and can lead to more serious problems, including TMJ disorder.

Jawbone Deterioration | When your jawbone is lacking sufficient stimulation from natural tooth roots, it begins to deteriorate. Jawbone deterioration leads to a collapsed face, giving you a prematurely aged look. A disintegrated jaw makes it difficult to chew, speak, or wear dentures.


At Discovery Dental Las Vegas, you can permanently transform the way you feel about your appearance and confidence with dental implants. Dental implants will give you a complete and beautiful smile. More importantly, they will ward off jawbone deterioration and bite problems while restoring your ability to chew, speak, and smile properly. We also offer same day implants!

With our state-of-the-art cone beam 3D imaging technology and extensive experience, you can stay right here in our office for continuous and convenient care throughout the implant process, which includes three steps to bring back your new beautiful smile:

  1. Placement | Your dentist will place the dental implant or implants beneath the gum line, into the jawbone.
  2. Osseointegration | You will be given some time to recover from the procedure. Your new dental implants will fuse with the jawbone and become a functional part of your natural smile.
  3. Restoration | When your jaw has fully recovered from the implant placement and your implants have fully integrated with the bone, our doctors will restore the implants with natural-looking replacement teeth. Depending on your needs, you can choose from dental crowns, bridges, or dentures.

The team of professional dentists and dental assistants at Discovery Dental has extensive experience and training in dental implant placement, making it easy for us to provide you with personalized care from start to finish for the smile you’ve always dreamed about!
