Dental Implants 101 in Tucson, AZ

A dental implant consultation with Dr. Robert Hawke is an educational experience aimed to help you and your dentist determine if dental implants are the best solution for your missing teeth.

• Examination: Dr. Hawke will examine your entire mouth, paying close attention to your teeth, gums and bone density, because dental implants need bone to function. If you have bone loss, you may need a bone graft prior to getting dental implants.

• X-rays: To identify the best locations for your dental implants, Dr. Hawke may order some X-rays and computer tomography scans (CT scans) of your mouth and jaw during your dental implant consultation.

• Personal conversation: Discussing your lifestyle habits, including oral hygiene, medical history (including dental work), illnesses, medications and other factors is also part of the dental implant consultation. For example, smoking may interrupt the integration of dental implants.

• Choosing Dental Implants in Marana Valley, AZ: After your oral examination, Dr. Hawke will recommend the best dental implant treatment for your needs. An important part of your dental implant consultation is to understand the various procedures that are available. Implants are flexible and able to support different needs. Whether you have one missing tooth or several, dental implants can do the job in various ways with traditional implants, All-on-4 implants, implant supported dentures, and other treatments.

• Understanding your treatment plan
: During your dental implant consultation, Dr. Hawke will create a treatment plan and explain how it works. Common questions that are answered during a dental implant consultation:

• How long does the treatment take from start to finish?
• How many office visits are required?
• How long does it take to heal?
• What can I expect post-surgery – do I need to follow an aftercare plan?
• How do I take care of my new dental implants?
• What kind of anesthesia is involved and may I have sedation dentistry?
• What do dental implants cost and how is it calculated?
• Will my health insurance pay for my dental implant procedure?
