You want to feel confident and proud of your smile.
Your smile is usually the first thing people notice about you and it has the ability to make a lasting, friendly impression. Having missing or damaged teeth can take a toll on your self-esteem and make you reluctant to show your smile.
Dental implants are a long-lasting, natural-looking tooth loss solution to enhance your smile. They’re custom-made to look and feel like your natural teeth, so you’ll be able to flash your smile without worrying. Best of all, implants require little to no extra maintenance, so you’ll forget you even have them.
You want the freedom to eat and speak with ease.
Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants integrate with your jaw bone, restoring the function of your teeth without shifting them out of place. This eliminates any slipping while you’re eating your favorite foods or speaking with friends.
This restoration solution is strong and durable like your natural teeth, giving you the freedom to enjoy any and every food without restrictions. Plus, they help you speak more clearly.
You want to feel happy and free again.
Living with missing or damaged teeth can cause feelings of insecurity, unhappiness, or even depression. A healthy, fully restored smile can boost feel-good endorphins in your brain, known as serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are sent throughout your body, making you feel happy and energized.
You can enjoy the freedom of a smile that looks, feels, and functions just like your regular teeth. Not only do dental implants last a lifetime, but they only require the same oral hygiene care as your natural teeth — brush regularly and floss at least once a day.
You want a solution that protects your health.
Through a process called osseointegration, dental implants fuse with your jaw bone, which prevents further damage and stimulates healthy bone growth. This allows you to live an active lifestyle without worrying about your smile.
Dental implants also reduce your risk for oral infection by preventing your natural teeth from shifting around, which can irritate your gums and lead to periodontal disease. They’re easy to maintain with proper oral care and can last a lifetime with regular check-ups from our Longview team.

How long do dental implants last?

Will my dental implants slide out of place?
Unlike other tooth loss solutions, dental implants integrate with your bone and strengthen it. This restores the function of your teeth without shifting out of place.
I have periodontal (gum) disease. Am I a candidate for dental implants?
If you have gum disease, you may still be a candidate for dental implants. Before the implant process, Dr. Hobbs would require you to undergo periodontal treatment to strengthen your gums for successful placement.
Are dental implants safe?
Yes, dental implants are completely safe. They’re actually designed to protect your oral health and jaw bone from damage and deterioration, so they’re the safest tooth replacement option.
