Dental implants are for patients that are missing teeth, and the actual dental implant replaces the root of a tooth. It's made out of a metal, titanium, that's biocompatible, and after it's placed, it takes a little bit of healing, and then we are able to get a good crown on them. Patients love them because they can floss them. It feels like their natural tooth, and it never gets a cavity. In our practice, we're able to place implants very precisely with the use of our 3D cone beam. We're able to take an image in three dimensions of your jaw, so there's no guess work in where to place these implants. Patients really appreciate that, and many times it involves less surgery because of it, so patients that need dental implants are ones that have missing teeth and want to function, or in the front, want to smile again.

Determining Which Dental Implant Option Is Best For You
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots made of titanium and are gently placed directly into your jaw. Because they are so versatile, dental implants are a great tooth replacement option for many patients with different needs. They can improve your smile if you need only one tooth or a few teeth replaced. They can also help if you need to replace all your teeth with a full-mouth reconstruction.
Dr. Carol and Dr. Roberto provide:
Once your jaw has healed from implant placement, we’ll anchor great-looking replacement teeth to your implants, either crowns or bridges, and you’ve got yourself a brand-new, super-strong smile.
These smaller versions may be provided for you if your jawbone is too weak to support traditional implants. If you’ve been missing teeth for a lengthy period of time, the bone mass in your jaw may have deteriorated. If this is the case, mini dental implants may still be able to help! Dr. Carol and Dr. Roberto may also recommend bone grafts to improve your jaw if necessary.
Dr. Carol and Dr. Roberto also create natural-looking dentures that attach to a bar that’s fastened to your implants. This makes sure they stay put, no matter what kind of harder foods you choose to eat.
Similar to implant-supported dentures, implant-retained dentures snap onto implants that have balls on top to anchor the dentures.
Receiving Your Implants In Total Comfort
You will feel no pain during your procedure, even if you require any existing teeth to be extracted before receiving your implants. Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto will use a 3D cone beam CT to scan your mouth and ensure optimal placement of your implants. Your mouth will be numbed to prevent any discomfort, and we can provide you with relaxation dentistry options, including free nitrous oxide, for ultimate relaxation.
Once your implants have been placed, our dental offices in West Liberty, IA and Muscatine, IA, use CEREC technology to create your beautiful new replacement teeth. We will attach these to your implants once your healing period is over.
