Your Permanent Solution to Missing Teeth
Natural-looking dental implants are the healthiest and longest-lasting way to restore any number of missing teeth. They’re designed to integrate with your jawbone, creating a firm hold that gives you superior chewing power without the restoration slipping and sliding around your mouth.
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.
Discover if you qualify for dental implants and if they’re the perfect solution for your oral health needs by reading Dr. Hobbs’s guide below.
What are Dental Implants?
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.

Are you tired of living without a full set of teeth? Dental implants can change your life by boosting your confidence, preserving your oral health, and allowing you to eat what you want.
