Dental Implants

One of the great benefits of dental implants is that they are indeed a permanent tooth replacement solution. With excellent home care and regular dental checkups with your Urbandale dentist every six months, dental implants have the potential to last for a lifetime.

Our dentists place your implant directly into your jawbone, where it integrates and fuses with it over time since it is made from biocompatible titanium material. The implant essentially takes the place of your lost root and provides support for your new tooth while keeping your jawbone healthy and stimulated.

A dental implant in Urbandale is the closest thing you can get to a natural tooth when it comes to restoring your smile. Your new tooth will look, feel, and function like a natural tooth, so you'll be able to eat and chew with ease, and your smile will be aesthetically complete.

Living with a missing tooth affects both your oral health and your confidence. Today, modern dentistry offers excellent options for replacing a missing tooth. Dental bridges are an attractive and affordable option, while dental implants provide the potential to last for a lifetime and protect your oral health, unlike other tooth replacement choices.

Dental Bridges in Johnston

A dental bridge uses crowns to anchor to your healthy teeth with one or more prosthetic teeth attached in the middle to bridge the gap. We use the finest ceramic material to create the right aesthetics to naturally complement your smile.

Dental Implants

A dental implant gives you the function, feel, and appearance of your natural tooth. It is the only option for replacing a tooth that also restores your root, which protects the health of your jawbone and the shape of your face.

Dental implants can also replace multiple missing teeth by anchoring dental prosthetics such as a dental bridge, denture, or partial denture. Implants offer security and more stability for denture wearers who may have struggled with movement or slipping in the past.
