Dental Implants

If you are missing one tooth or many, you already know the problems you face morning, noon, and night.

Dental implants can put those worries behind you and help you avoid more dental problems in the future. 

Robert Hawke, DDS, in Tucson, AZ, can even help patients suffering from bone loss take advantage of implants' many benefits. 

Is Bone Loss Preventing You From Getting Implants?

Many of our patients in the greater Tucson region have been told they lack the jawbone density needed to support dental implants. However, with advances in modern dentistry, Dr. Hawke can now offer alternative solutions at our Tuscon practice...
All-on-4

All-on-4 Dental Implants

If deterioration in your jawbone has prevented you from enjoying the security of implant-supported dentures, All-on-4® dental implants may be a solution. The All-on-4 method needs just four implants to support a denture instead of the six or eight (or more) needed with traditional methods. Because All-on-4 implants are angled, less bone is needed to hold them in place.  

Mini implant

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are another option to consider when bone loss limits your choices. This smaller version of traditional implants is used when a weakened jaw cannot accommodate the larger implant. Like a traditional implant, the mini version is made out of titanium, but it is only about the diameter of a toothpick. Because minis are less invasive, the procedure and healing period are faster.

See How a Dental Implant Is Placed

Dental implants are carefully inserted into the jaw in the place of missing tooth roots. Dr. Hawke uses custom surgical guides to assist with implantation, an extra step that reduces the chance of complications. The titanium implant post is then topped with an abutment and your custom dental restoration. 

In many cases, we can provide all these steps in a single appointment at our Tucson, AZ, dental practice.  

Are You Concerned About Costs?

While dental implants are undoubtedly an investment, our Tucson practice strives to keep your costs as affordable as possible. On top of working with your insurance to get you as much coverage as possible, Dr. Hawke is happy to accept flexible financing for your treatment.

Consultation 

During your consultation, the dentist will perform a thorough oral evaluation and take detailed images of your oral structures using state-of-the-art cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). Using this information, he will determine if implants are the best treatment and the exact location for the posts.

First Surgery

You will be made comfortable with a local anesthetic. We also offer nitrous oxide. When you are comfortable, an implant made out of biocompatible titanium will be inserted through an incision in your gums and into the bone. You may be provided with a temporary crown, bridge, or denture.

Healing Period

Over the next three to six months, your implant post will fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This is the step that makes implants incredibly reliable and sturdy.

Second Minor Surgery

Once osseointegration is complete, the abutment will be attached to the implant. The abutment is a connector piece that allows your restoration to be attached to the implant.

Second Healing

After the abutment has been placed, your gums will need a few weeks to heal. 

Restoration Placement

Using precise digital impressions from the 3D cone beam scanner, Dr. Hawke will design a restoration that fits, feels, and looks just like your natural teeth. After your gums have healed, you will return so we can attach your custom restorations and make any last-minute adjustments needed so your smile is beautiful, secure, and comfortable.

Walk out with a confident smile you are happy to share!
