“Our patients are opting for implants frequently as they are preferred over bridges and dentures,” states Dr. Nan Bates. “This is just another progressive dental service that we are able to provide for our families at Clay & Associates DDS, PLC.”

Missing teeth can make individuals feel self-conscious when eating, talking or smiling, and create oral health problems as well. Today, a dental implant procedure can give patients a replacement tooth that looks, feels and functions as naturally as the original. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots inserted into the jaw to replace missing teeth.

Today, implants with attached crowns are the preferred method for treating tooth loss because they function the same as natural teeth and help preserve the jaw structure by preventing atrophy from bone loss. Bridgework and dentures address the cosmetic problem of missing teeth but do not prevent bone loss. Permanent implants maintain proper chewing function and exert appropriate, natural forces on the jawbone to keep it functional and healthy.

Dr. Nan Bates has completed an extensive lecture and hands on course regiment in dental implants through the Implant Seminars and is now also providing this service at Clay & Associates DDS, PLC located in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

The Dental Implant Continuum™ course provides high level dentists the education and training to provide the implant services at their dental clinic. The course is organized by Dr. Arun K. Garg, a renowned dental surgeon and educator and is an AGD-accredited program that provides dentists with the expertise in placing dental implants. From the biology of osseointegration and a review of graft materials, to suturing and soft tissue management, the Continuum program provides the comprehensive continuing education and experience for the service.

“Our patients are opting for implants frequently as they are preferred over bridges and dentures,” states Dr. Nan Bates. “This is just another progressive dental service that we are able to provide for our families at Clay & Associates DDS, PLC.”

Dr. Nan Bates is a 2016 graduate of the University of Iowa College of Dentistry and joined Clay & Associates DDS, PLC after graduation. She is currently accepting new patients for all dental services and is trained in Botox and DermaFill procedures.
