Des Moines Iowa's Dental Implant Specialists

Dental implants replace teeth in a way that no previous dentistry procedure has been able to achieve. Titanium dental implant anchors are inserted directly into the bone and covered by a dental cap or denture.

Dental implants are stronger than your tooth’s natural root and never require root canal therapy or filling.

A dental implant does not require adjacent teeth to be reduced and maintain the shape of the bone in your jaw area. With our teams combined 100 years of cosmetic dentistry experience, our dental implants are installed correctly resulting in a comfortable and natural look, providing permanent solutions for a missing tooth leading to a healthy smile.

Dental Implants
Dental Implant

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Types of Dental Implants

The most common form of dental implant is the root implant. This particular type of dental implant replicates both the size and shape of the natural tooth.

After applying local anesthesia, our dentist makes an incision in the gum to have access to the jawbone. We prepare the jawbone, and our skilled cosmetic team inserts the dental implant with care. Our dental team then stitches the gum and applies medication. During osseointegration, the jawbone merges to the dental root implant. Once the process is complete, the patient returns to our dental office, and we fit the implant with a custom porcelain dental crown.

Plate form implants are another type of implant dentistry, which is the preferred technique when the jawbone is not sufficient to support a dental root implant. The plate form implant anchors into thin jawbones. The insertion process is similar to the root implant, except in some cases when we fit the plate implant with restoration not waiting for osseointegration.

The final type of implant is the subperiosteal implant. When a dental patient has a receding jawbone and cannot support a permanent implant, subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the bone and embedded into the gums. After we apply a local anesthesia, we make a mold of the mouth and jawbone. On the second visit, our cosmetic dental team exposes the jawbone and inserts the subperiosteal implant. Over the next few months, the gums grow around the implant.

Dental Implant Risk

As with any cosmetic operation, health complications for implant dentistry are rare but can include infection, slight nerve damage, and mild to moderate discomfort.

Although unlikely, we treat infection with antibiotics or other medications. Surgery to the jawbone may result in minor nerve damage which usually subsides in a few weeks, but may continue for longer. Patients may experience some discomfort while the jawbone is healing, which we manage with medication if requested. Most pain will subside within ten days.

Dental Implant Maintenance

When dental implant procedures, are performed dental hygiene is of paramount importance.

Clean your teeth and gums properly, so bacteria will not attack sensitive area, which causes gums to swell and the possibility of a receding jawbone. If the jawbone recedes too far, the dental implant installation will become weakened and will need to be removed.

Patients should visit their dentist two times per year to ensure the health of their teeth, and ultimately their dental implant. Following this cosmetic dental operation, patients should not smoke as it makes it difficult for the gums and jawbone to heal properly. With the proper oral care, dental implants will last more than 25 years.

I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Margeas for a small cosmetic issue with a tooth from a recommendation from my current Dentist. I have heard from many people (including my own dentist) that he was the best in cosmetic dentistry any where in the mid-west. My consultation was this morning. He was totally upfront about what he thinks the best route is for me and my teeth. I felt totally comfortable with his recommendations and confident in his abilities. I've been to an other dentist about this same issue years ago and it didn't feel right. Now that I've had the consultation with Dr. Margeas, I'm excited to finally move forward with fixing it. Every staff member was very welcoming and pleasant. It was a really nice place to be with a great energy there. If I didn't like my normal dentist so much, I'd absolutely become a regular there! Maybe I'll pop in for an extra cleaning or something. I'm happy to have found Dr. Margeas and his staff to help me correct my cosmetic issue. I highly recommend this business!read more

From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt me and my teeth were in great hands. The whole team is so kind, and my dentist was fantastic. I originally went in wanting veneers, keep in mind I am overly critical of my smile and teeth, and it was all I knew. My dentist educated me that he did not think veneers were the best choice for me, and gave me a much better option which costed about 6 times less than what veneers would have. He is a great dentist because he won't just do what makes him the most money, he does what is best for the patient. I just got done with my appointment and I could not be more overjoyed with my results. Thank you Iowa Dental Group team!:)read more
