About Harvey Chin, DDS
Dr. Harvey Chin, DDS: A graduate of UOP School of Dentistry in San Francisco with over 30+ years’ experience, Dr. Chin has developed an interest in the surgical areas of extractions, grafting, implants and sedation , in order to better provide fixed teeth to better serve our patients. Dr. Chin has placed over 15,000 implants of various sizes and shapes, with a special emphasis in minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Chin enjoys surgical extraction of teeth, including 3 rd molars, having serviced over 10 offices in the Las Vegas area. Dr. Chin places traditional and smaller diameter implants, with a minimally invasive preference. All implants have a general success rate of over 95%, but my experience tells me the key to implant success is to extract myself and graft with L-PRF for a solid foundation to place implants. We offer sedation (oral, IV, and general sedation) for the convenience of our patients. As a result, many patients have enjoyed a renewed quality of life to be able to get rid of their dentures and have fixed teeth!
Replacing a single tooth with a single tooth implant does not endanger the health of the neighboring teeth. Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. Several missing teeth can also be replaced with individual implants. This method will place a dental implant at the site of each missing tooth, providing ideal replicas of your lost teeth. Multiple teeth may also be restored with an implant bridge, which is a prosthetic comprised of three or more crown units, depending upon the number of missing teeth.
One of the most rewarding and exciting new procedures in dentistry today is the system for making your previously loose dentures tight and comfortable. Mini dental implants provide denture patients with the ability to eat, smile, and speak with confidence. In as little as 1 hour, 4-6 dental implants can be placed, and your dentures can be fitted over the implants. The patient leaves the office with a stable denture, which can be used IMMEDIATELY. In addition, placement of these implants results in little to no post-operative discomfort. Many patients who were not candidates for conventional implants because they didn’t have enough bone or because of finances are now mini dental implant candidates.
Made of Hybrid Resin or Zirconia, the removable bridge involves the placement of between 6-10 implants, determined by bone volume and bone quality. This is a fixed hybrid bridge that can be detached by the dentist as needed at recall cleaning visits.
