A dental implant may be suggested by our knowledgeable dentist as a total tooth replacement. The root and crown of your tooth are both restored by implants, helping to maintain the supporting bone structure, restoring your smile, and regaining your ability to chew and speak without difficulty. Call Wausau Smiles at 715-842-3933 right away to set up your appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong and discover how implants in Wausau, Wisconsin, can enhance your quality of life.
Implants can be used to replace one lost tooth, numerous missing teeth, or all of the teeth. They are a permanent, durable alternative to dentures. The titanium implant post, which resembles a screw, is surgically implanted into the jawbone where the missing tooth formerly was. This restores the missing tooth root and guarantees the stability of your dental restoration.
It then frequently takes a healing period for the bone to start fusing with the biocompatible post. The implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post, will then be inserted by our dentist after this healing phase. Your implant replacement could be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture, depending on which teeth are missing and your individual dental requirements. Each implant repair is built specifically to match your smile both cosmetically and comfortably..
A missing tooth replacement can give your smile its best possible health, function, and attractiveness. The fact that an implant is made to feel, look, and operate exactly like your real teeth, and that with proper care, it can last a lifetime, makes it a fantastic alternative for repairing your smile.

Do you hesitate to smile because of missing teeth? In Wausau, Wisconsin, Dr. Aaron Bushong provides All-On-4® for patients who are missing most or all of the teeth in one or both dental arches.

Make an appointment with our dentist at Wausau Smiles by calling 715-842-3933 if you’re curious to learn more about tooth replacement.
All-On-4® is a revolutionary implant procedure It completely replaces all of the teeth in your upper, lower, or both dental arches. With this specific treatment, you get a restoration that looks natural and is also strong enough to last a lifetime! While the All-On-4 method only requires four implants, conventional full-arch replacement operations typically require six to eight implants. Additionally, standard methods often only put a small number of implants at a time, which means that your treatment may take up to 18 months, during which time you will have to go about your life with a partial smile. In our office, we think that in order to reap the rewards of a healthy, whole smile, patients should get the treatment they require as soon as possible.
The All-On-4 treatment stands out from traditional implant procedures and offers several benefits to our patients, including:
- Less invasive by using only four implants
- All implants are placed at once, so you only need one surgery
- Your dental restoration is attached to your implants at the time of surgery, so you do not have to leave our office without a complete smile
- Customized dentures and restorations for a natural-looking smile
- Less expensive than other treatments that require more implants
The All-On-4 procedure is an excellent option for many people. Our dentist will assess your oral health throughout your appointment to see if your mouth can support implants. Our dentist may advise having some of your remaining teeth extracted before your implant treatment if you only have a few teeth left in a dental arch.
