Las Vegas dentist Dr. Azimi, DDS has helped hundreds of people with damaged and missing teeth reclaim their confidence and esteem. If you've been suffering from tooth loss, it's time to end the discomfort and get back to smiling and chewing again.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
- IF you have one or more missing teeth that keep you from enjoying the simple pleasures of smiling, laughing, talking, eating.
- IF you have dentures that move around and make it hard to chew and smile.
- IF you need a permanent solution to replacing your missing teeth.
- THEN Dental Implants Might Be Right For You!
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small titanium screw secured into the jawbone which serves as the anchor or tooth root of the replacement tooth. Titanium is a biocompatible material that fuses with the jaw bone which helps to stabilize the implant and prevent facial changes that can occur with bone loss.
Teeth that have been replaced with dental implants will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth and in most cases, with proper maintenance and care, could last a lifetime.
You would care for them just as you would for your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing as well as regular visits to our office for a cleaning and exam can help ensure that your implant will last for many years to come.
Dental Implants Are Dr. Azimi's #1 Choice For Replacing Missing Teeth!

“I am elated about finally getting rid of my troublesome dentures and having dental implants placed by Dr. Azimi. My ability to eat more types of foods has changed immensely — foods that I haven’t tasted in over 10 years I am now eating regularly! My only regret is not getting these sooner.”
Do You Have Dentures That Slip and Move While You Talk, Chew and Smile?
The Benefits of Dental Implant Retained Dentures!
More Natural Looking - Dentures that are placed over dental implants look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth. The denture is securely anchored to the implant which allows you to smile and chew just as you would with your natural teeth.
No Movement - When dentures are anchored to dental implants, they will not move, which is not the case with removable dentures. Removable dentures are fixed to the gums with adhesives that are not effective and will allow the dentures to slip which will affect your smile and ability to chew.
Improved Chewing Ability - With dental implant retained dentures, you'll chew just like you would with natural teeth.
Snap On Lower Denture
Snap On Dentures are not only stronger than traditional dentures but are far more comfortable. Unlike traditional removable dentures that sit on top of the gums and can move around while talking and eating, Snap On dentures are overdentures which are securely attached to dental implants. Two or more implants will be required for a Snap On denture and the exact number will be determined and discussed with you once you’ve had a consultation and exam with Dr. Azimi.
Screw Retained Lower Denture
This more permanent tooth replacement option involves placing four or more implants into your jaw and attaching the denture to them with screws. With this method, the denture doesn’t touch the gum tissue, which will allow you to clean under it without having to remove it. This type of denture will replace all of your missing lower teeth and will not have to be removed except when you visit Dr. Azimi for your checkup and maintenance.
Screw Retained Upper Denture
Because the bone is not as hard as that in the lower jaw, you'll often need more implants to support the upper denture. Depending upon the number of implants to be placed, it may be possible to eliminate the need for covering the roof of your mouth with a complete denture. This option allows you to fully taste your food and gives you a better sense of its temperature.
Replacing Missing Teeth With Implant Retained Bridges
Traditional Dental Bridge (fixed)
A traditional dental bridge is a form of tooth restoration that utilizes adjacent teeth as abutments and are generally used for the replacement of some, but not all of your teeth. The number one complication or cause of failure of a traditional bridge is decay, leakage, or fracture of one or more of the adjacent teeth. When this happens and the abutment teeth become very compromised or un-restorable then dental implant retained bridges may be the solution.
An implant-retained bridge is similar to a traditional dental bridge, but is supported by dental implants which makes them a superior solution for your overall oral health. The implants will not decay, leak, or fracture and they will help to preserve the structure of your jaw.
Zirconia Porcelain Bridge (fixed)
A Zirconia Porcelain Bridge is considered a top quality type of bridge which is stronger, more durable and aesthetically appealing as compared to other types of bridges. A Zirconia bridge has a translucent appearance and is an ideal match with the rest of your teeth.
Unlike porcelain fused to metal bridges, a Zirconia Porcelain bridge is produced from Zirconium oxide and has no metal which makes them ideal for people who are sensitive or allergic to the metal used in other types of bridges. Generally this type of bridge will need a minimum of six dental implants to securely place it into your mouth.
