Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots for damaged, decaying or missing teeth. They can be used for single tooth implants or to support a bridge if several teeth are missing. Fort Des Moines Dental can even provide implant supported dentures if all teeth are missing.

Implants are wonderful permanent options to replace missing teeth and regain a fully functioning mouth and natural smile.

Our Patients

“My children and I have been coming to Fort Des Moines Dental since 1994! What started out as a fun place to pick a toy out of the treasure chest for a good checkup became a great place for all our dental needs. Friendly staff, attentive hygienists and well-spoken dentists keep us coming back, twenty-three years and counting!”

Trish F.

“I love my smile! The flexible trays that Dr. Patrick made for me made my teeth shine. It was so easy and quick, I’m just upset I didn’t start going to Fort Des Moines Dental five years ago.”
