What Are Dental Implants?
Tooth loss is a major health issue in America that continues to grow as our population ages. In fact, nearly 120 million adults in this country have already lost at least one tooth due to poor oral health or physical trauma.
Living with one or more missing teeth will damage your self-esteem and threaten your oral health. In fact, leaving your missing teeth untreated can even result in the loss of additional teeth.
At DentaCare Dental Group, Dr. Hobbs restores smiles using natural-looking dental implants. With this attractive restoration, you won’t ever feel hesitant to laugh or smile in public again. And with the restored chewing power you get from dental implants, you can go back to eating all your favorite foods.
Single and Multi-Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are permanent prosthetic replacements for missing teeth. They’re surgically attached to the bones in your jaw, creating a secure hold, so they won’t come out or shift around.
If you’re looking to restore one or more teeth, Dr. Hobbs has an implant solution for you. First, he’ll surgically place the implant fixture — that’s the bottom section of the implant that works just like a natural tooth root to hold your dental implant in place.
As soon as your body has adjusted to the fixture, we’ll complete the restoration by adding the attractive porcelain crown. It’s custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, so your dental implant will blend right in with your smile.
If you’re missing one or both arches, Dr. Hobbs can restore your smile with an attractive, implant-supported restoration. In addition to giving you a stunning new smile, this treatment also enhances your oral health by stimulating essential jawbone growth.
Typically, a full-arch implant-supported bridge is secured using four or more implants that integrate with your jawbone to provide a level of stability that’s unmatched by other types of restorations. Your natural-looking new smile will stay firmly in place during social gatherings and while you’re eating.
You get two additional advantages when you choose a full-arch restoration with Dr. Hobbs. First, there’s never any need for bone grafting thanks to our strategic implant placement. Second, we perform all your surgical procedures in one day, so you’ll leave our office with an attractive, fully functional temporary prosthetic after just one visit.
Implant-Supported Dentures & Partials
Are you tired of the way your dentures feel? Do they move around or cause pain when you’re eating? There’s an easy way to eliminate the loose fit and instability that make your dentures so difficult to wear — implant-supported dentures.
Also referred to as overdentures, this implant-secured solution will transform your existing denture into a comfortable, secure-fitting, and effective set of teeth. With implant-supported dentures, you’ll be able to eat without restrictions and you’ll never have to worry about your smile.
We also feature implant-retained partial dentures for a much stronger fit than regular clip-on partials. It’s time to say goodbye to those annoying visible clasps forever.
