There are certainly a lot of questions you should ask when your dentist suggests you need dental implants in Las Vegas.   And it is very understandable for you to be a little bit anxious about having such extensive dental work done. 

However, you should realize that getting dental implants is a good way to restore your teeth, no matter what is wrong with them.  Dental implants can be used for different purposes, all with the intent of restoring not only the usefulness of the real teeth you still have and preserving your ability to eat and speak properly, but also for aesthetic purposes, giving you a healthy smile once again. 

One of the main reasons your dentist may suggest getting dental implants in Las Vegas is if you have a missing tooth in an important area of your mouth.  Sometimes teeth are removed because they have damage such as with a serious cavity or the nerve gets killed and the tooth dies.  Sometimes it is traumatic such as in a car accident or with a sports injury.  Some people have a condition where some or all of their adult teeth never grow in at all and are not even developed fully in their gums.  Sometimes the lack of a molar or even more than one molar is hardly noticeable because you have lots of other teeth to take up the load.  However, sometimes even one tooth being gone will cause the others to shift, can cause your bite to be off kilter which can lead to all sorts of jaw and head problems, and can make chewing difficult.   If this is the case, the dentist may suggest an implant where the missing tooth or teeth can be permanently replaced and solve all of those other problems.  Even if the missing tooth is not causing problems with the function of your other teeth, it may look bad, such as if one or more of the front teeth are missing.  In this case, it may be purely for looks, but you would still be grateful to have the tooth permanently replaced.

Another reason the dentist may suggest dental implants is if dentures are not a realistic option for you.  There may be several teeth missing but kind of sporadically through the mouth or you may be having a hard time adjusting to the feel of a denture.  In that case, permanently attaching the replacement teeth in your mouth may be the best option. 

Although dental implants in Las Vegas are not for everyone, if your dentist suggests them, do not dismiss the idea out of hand.  It may be the very best option for you.
