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 avoid smiling due to missing teeth? Dr. Aaron Bushong in Wausau, Wisconsin, offers All-On-4® to patients who have most or all of their teeth missing from one or both dental arches. The All-On-4 method replaces your complete dental arch with four implants, giving you a secure, long-lasting, and realistic-looking replacement. Call Wausau Smiles at 715-842-3933 to arrange a consultation with our dentist if you’re curious to learn more about tooth replacement.
All-On-4® is a revolutionary implant procedure that completely replaces every tooth in your upper dental arch, lower dental arch, or both. This specific treatment option offers you a restoration that is not only strong and long-lasting but also one that looks natural. The All-On-4 method only requires four implants, compared to the six to eight implants typically used in conventional full-arch replacement surgeries. Additionally, as few implants are normally placed at a time during standard operations, 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 patients should get the treatment they require as soon as possible so they can benefit from a healthy, complete smile.
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 suitable for a large number of people. We will assess your oral health and decide whether your mouth can accommodate implants during a consultation with our dentist. Our dentist may advise that you have any teeth in a dental arch that are still present removed before your implant treatment.
We welcome you to get in touch with our office right away to set up your All-On-4 consultation. We are eager to assist you in regaining your full grin!
