Our Implant Solutions
Natural-looking dental implants are the healthiest and longest-lasting way to restore a missing tooth. They’re designed to integrate with your jawbone, creating a firm hold that gives you superior chewing power.
Dental implants also stimulate essential jawbone growth for a healthier smile. Over time, dentures can cause your cheekbones to sag and make your face look distorted. But dental implants preserve the natural structure of your face.

Dr. Hobbs features dental implant solutions to restore one or more teeth, or even one or both arches. All of our implant solutions provide you with:
- An all-natural appearance
- The ability to speak clearly
- Exceptional chewing power
- Protection from oral infection and disease
- Comfort and convenience
How the Process Works
Your road to a new smile begins with your complimentary consultation with Dr. Hobbs. He’ll talk to you about the kind of smile you’re looking for and he’ll perform a complete dental examination to determine if dental implants are the best treatment for you.
Your examination will include an advanced diagnostic scan that uses a tiny camera to generate a clear and accurate 3D image of your mouth. Dr. Hobbs uses this data to design your treatment plan. This state-of-the-art procedure results in faster treatment times and a more pleasant post-surgery experience for you.
In some cases, patients who are good candidates for dental implants require one or more supplemental procedures to prepare for the implant process. Treatment for gum disease and bone grafting to strengthen the surgical site are two of the most common supplemental treatments for patients who need a little extra help to get ready for the implant process.
