Dental implants have become one of the most accepted and effective solutions available for replacing a missing tooth (or teeth). Our dental implants offer the function and appearance of natural teeth.
Dental implants are used to replace lost teeth. They are small screw-like structures made out of medical-grade titanium. This screw is surgically placed in the jaw to hold the implant in place the same way a natural tooth root does. Once the implant is placed, the jawbone grows around it naturally holding it securely in place and preventing bone deterioration.
Dental implants are quite effective in preventing dental issues that come with tooth loss including bite imbalance, loss of facial structure, deterioration of the jawbone and tooth shifts. They can be used as a firm foundation for other dental appliances such as dental crowns and bridges. At Lush Family Dental in Waukee, we offer All-on-4 implants.
All-on-4 is a minimally invasive solution using just four strategically placed dental implants to support a full upper or lower denture. This cost-effective treatment concept is a graftless solution that can provide a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.
Implants usually require a minor surgery for them to be installed, so they are only suitable for healthy adults with sufficient bone density. Let our professionals examine you and let you know if you are a candidate for dental implants.
Yes, dental implants are quite effective, and this is the reason they have grown in popularity as a solution for tooth loss. They are made of durable materials which do not break under pressure or wear out easily. Best of all, they look and function just like natural teeth.
