Dr. Rebecca Hobbs routinely recommends dental implant restorations for replacement of missing teeth and stabilization of complete and partial dentures.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is inserted in the location of a missing tooth to serve as a foundation for a dental restoration such as a crown, bridge or denture. Dental implants are placed by implant specialists (oral surgeons, periodontists or general dentists with advanced training in dental implant surgery).

Restoring Your Dental Implant

Following initial placement, dental implants are allowed to heal and integrate with the jaw bone. The implant specialist may support the dental implant with bone or tissue grafts to promote healing and stability.

After the proper healing time, Dr. Hobbs transforms the dental implant(s) into a functional tooth replacement. A single implant is typically restored with a crown; multiple implants may be restored with a dental bridge or a partial or complete denture.

All-on-four or all-on-six dental implant procedures refer to placement of 4 or 6 implants in a single arch to provide support for a removable denture or a fixed arch appliance.
