Our Implant Solutions
Whether you need to replace one tooth or many, we have a dental implant solution to fit your needs.
Single Tooth Implant
If you have one missing tooth, we can replace it with a single dental implant to restore your smile. We design your restoration to blend in with the rest of your healthy, neighboring teeth for a natural appearance.
Whenever possible we use the All-on-4® method to secure a full-arch denture with dental implants. Unlike traditional implant-supported dentures that require six to eight implants, this method uses only four, strategically-placed implants that take advantage of existing bone density, eliminating the need for bone grafting and reducing recovery time.
Implant-supported overdentures offer a tooth replacement option for people who are missing all of their natural teeth. By securing a full-arch denture to the jawbone with dental implants you’ll enjoy improved chewing function, allowing you to eat your favorite foods. You’ll also be able to speak and smile with ease knowing your restoration won’t slip out of place.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer a healthy, natural-looking tooth replacement option that can help you chew, speak, and smile with confidence. Instead of just replacing the visible part of a tooth, dental implants also replace the tooth root, which is essential for preventing jawbone deterioration. The implant serves as a strong foundation for the dental restoration–single crown, multi-tooth bridge, or full arch denture.
You’ll enjoy many benefits with dental implants, including:
- Fully restored chewing ability so you can enjoy your favorite foods.
- Ability to speak and smile with confidence.
- Protection for your oral health and overall wellbeing.
- Restorations that are as easy to care for as your natural teeth.
Our Unique Process
Start your dental implant journey by scheduling a consultation at our office in Oelwein or West Union. Our dentist will spend time with you, listen to your needs and tooth-restoration goals, and help you determine if dental implants are the right option for you.
This visit will include a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw, so our dentist can create a customized treatment plan just for you. We use our Cone Beam CT scanner to create detailed 3D images of your mouth which are used to plan your dental implant placement for a predictable result.
Are you a Candidate?
If you want a tooth replacement solution that will last for years to come and protect the health of your entire mouth, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. They’re an excellent choice for people who are missing one or more teeth and can give you the confidence to smile, speak, and eat without worrying about your restorations. We invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kruger to find out if dental implants are the right choice for you.
