Dental implants are an amazing solution for replacing missing teeth. They act as a replacement for the root of your tooth, restoring stability, resilience, strength, and support to the jawbone and mouth.

These dental implants are surgically placed to the lower and upper jawbone of your teeth. When attached, implants look and feel like natural teeth, and enhance and restore your smile.

Dental implants can:

  • Replace missing teeth without affecting contiguous teeth
  • Resolve bite problems or joint pain caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space
  • Give the appearance of natural teeth
  • Restore speech, chewing, and digestion
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues
  • Support a bridge or denture, lending security and comfort

We invite you to give us a call and schedule your next dental appointment with Dr. Richard Barton. We will discuss all of your dental treatment options so you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile.


Receiving dental implants may require multiple dental visits to Richard Barton DDS, spanning the course of several months. During these visits, you may expect the following procedures: X-rays, impressions (molds), surgically placed implants (including placement of the post and anchor), and the fitting and attachment of artificial teeth.

During the surgeries, numbing techniques will be applied to your mouth to make your experience as comfortable as possible. We also provide time for healing between visits to ensure that your implant and artificial teeth are securely attached. This will provide you with optimal stability and comfort after the procedure is over. To find out more about dental implants in Henderson, Nevada, give us a call at 702-456-1147.
