A dental implant is an option to replace a
missing tooth. In this procedure, our Las Vegas
Dentist, implants small titanium shaft into the
jaw bone and allowed to heal. The bone grows
around it forming a tight connection, this is
called integration. Once the implant is firmly
integrated with the surrounding bone, Our Las
Vegas dentist then works to restore the implant
with a crown. A crown will be placed on to the
implant via an abutment that is screwed to the
implant.  So when you are told that you need an
implant to replace your missing tooth keep in
mind that the implant alone is not a replacement.
The restoration includes three parts, the implant
itself, an abutment and a crown.

Implants are permanent fixed restorations that
are used to replace single or multiple missing
teeth. They can also be used as abutments to hold
a bridge or a loose denture. Lower dentures are
often very hard to live with due to lack of bone
support. Implants can be placed in the lower jaw
for better retention of a lower full denture.

Dental Bridges vs. Dental Implants
5
Dental implants are a better alternative to
bridges since they do not require any adjustments
to the healthy teeth that are adjacent to the
missing tooth. As discussed in the bridge section
in order to place a bridge the adjacent teeth
will be reduced in size in order for the bridge
to be placed. Implants are better alternatives to
partial dentures since they are fixed and not
removable. Implants can be placed immediately
following an extraction or later when the
extraction site is completely healed. Every case
is different and your dentist will determine
which route will be best for you. Usually an
extraction site takes 2-3 months to completely
heal. A bone graft is needed in many cases to
preserve the area for a future implant. After the
bone is ready the implant will be placed and let
heal for 3-6 months depending on the condition of
the bone.
6
Our dentist will evaluate the implant and the
bone and determine if the implant is ready to be
restored with a crown and become functional. If
an implant is restored too early due to the
functional forces it can become loose and fail.
This is why it is important to wait for proper
integration of the implant before placing a crown
or any other restoration on the implant. In some
cases the implant can be placed immediately after
the tooth extraction but it is not advisable to
place a crown immediately on the implant. A
temporary restoration may be placed in the
esthetic zone (front teeth) but will not be
functional in order to reduce stress on the
implant and prevent implant failure

What is all on four Implants?
8
In cases in which all teeth are being extracted
you have the option of placing four implants in
each arch and restore them with a fixed denture.
This method is called all on four implants and is
done in one day. This is a great alternative to
dentures which cover the palate completely and
cause gagging or affect your tasting. Also you
dont have to worry about loose dentures that
move around due to lack of support and retention.
This is not a removable device and is a permanent
solution.
9
The teeth will be extracted and the implants will
be placed immediately. This part is usually done
by an oral surgeon or a periodontist. Once the
implants are placed a temporary fixed denture
will be screwed over the implants. This is done
with the cooperation of the surgeon, the general
dentist and the laboratory. You will be seen
every month for a checkup and in 6 months the
temporary denture will be replaced with a final
fixed denture by your general dentist. You will
be required to follow up with your dentist for
regular checkups and maintenance every 6 months.

Are Dental Implants For Me?
Dental implants are an excellent option for
replacing teeth. Unlike dentures and partials,
implants are not removable and unlike bridges
there is no additional tooth adjustment or
removal of tooth structure with implants.
Implants with crown restorations function like
natural teeth. The success rate for dental
implants is very high. After a thorough
examination, Dr. Salmeh Jafarifar will let you
know if you are a good candidate for affordable
dental implants. She will take radiographs and
examine your bone, teeth, and gums. A few things
that will be considered are as follows
11
Is there enough bone present to support an
implant? If not, artificial or cadaver bone may
be grafted into the surgical site.
Do you have periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease must be treated before an
implant can be placed. If not, it can compromise
the long-term success of the implant.
Do you have any systemic diseases?
Diseases such as uncontrolled diabetes can cause
complications with dental implants.
12
Are you a smoker?
Dental implants are two and a half times more
likely to fail for smokers when compared to
non-smokers. Implants must be cared for like
natural teeth.
Are you on any medications that can compromise
healing after implant placement?
Most medications will not interfere with implant
surgery but Dr. Jafarifar will want to review
your medical history and current
medications. Blood thinners can cause bleeding
complications during implant surgery. A class of
drugs called the bisphosphonates that are
prescribed for osteoporosis can cause major
issues with implant surgery or any
extraction. Your medical doctor will determine
if you need to discontinue the medication prior
to surgery.
13
Maintaining good oral hygiene and having regular
dental checkups and cleanings will extend the
life of your implants. Preferred Family
Dentistry offers several implant options. Dr.

implants. Every patient at Preferred Family
