Explore our guide to learn about your treatment options.
Single Tooth Replacement
If you’re replacing just one tooth, we’ll top your implant with a stunning porcelain crown. Each of our crowns are customized to match the shade of your natural teeth and they’re highly durable for long-lasting results.
For patients who need to replace multiple teeth, there are a few options. If your missing teeth are adjacent, we recommend an implant-supported bridge. Unlike a traditional bridge, this restoration won’t need to rely on your surrounding teeth for support.
If you have gaps spaced throughout your smile, your dentist can customize a partial denture just for you and secure it with dental implants. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures won’t fall out or slide around in your mouth. They also prevent jawbone deterioration to preserve your oral health and facial appearance.
Many patients who are missing a full arch of teeth assume that restoring their smile will be too costly or inconvenient. Thankfully, this isn’t the case, as one of our dentists can place a complete denture and secure it to your jaw with just four to six dental implants.
Known as All-on-4, this treatment method requires no bone grafting and has allowed more patients to receive dental implants than ever before.

Frequently Asked Questions
What types of dental implant solutions are there?
No matter how many teeth you need to replace, our Hewitt dental implant providers can customize a solution that will fit your smile needs. Our options include single implants, implant-supported bridges and dentures, and All-on-4. In some cases, our dentists can even provide same-day dental implants for patients who want to save time. Each implant solution is designed to act as a natural tooth root, helping restore health, functionality, and confidence to your smile.
Are dental implants a permanent solution for tooth loss?
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution for tooth loss, acting just like a natural tooth root to support your choice of restoration. Made of biocompatible titanium, dental implants integrate naturally into your jaw for unmatched strength and durability. Once the implant properly fuses with your bone, one of our dentists can place your customized dental restoration. In most cases, this will be a porcelain crown or dentures.
Are there dietary restrictions after I get my dental implants?
You’ll want to listen to your dentist in regards to aftercare tips, as each patient’s guidelines will vary slightly depending on their individual case. Generally, we recommend avoiding hard-to-chew foods, very hot liquids, and sugary drinks.
Certain dietary options can help aid your recovery process. Some of which include:
- Mashed bananas
- Soups (not too hot!)
- Protein drinks
