Hoop, DDS to learn your full-mouth reconstruction options!

Regardless of which one you visit, Dr. George Hoop and our team of dental professionals can turn back the clock and restore your strong bite with beautiful restorative dentistry options, including a variety of dentures! We’ll even provide a free preview of your full-mouth reconstruction so you’ll know what to expect!
Benefits Of Securing Your Full-Mouth Reconstruction With Dental Implants
Dental implants are composed of three parts:
- The dental implants
- The dental restorations, or replacement teeth
- The abutment screw used to attach your restorations to your implants
Compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants offer many advantages, because they:
- Can last a lifetime with proper care
- Feel, function, and look just like your natural pearly whites
- Provide up to 90 percent of the chewing power that your natural teeth do
- Replace your tooth roots, preventing bone loss in your jaw so you can maintain your youthful look
In order to have dental implants placed, you will need a strong, thick jaw. To determine if you are a good candidate, we will get highly-detailed panoramic images of your jaw using state-of-the-art dental technology, including digital X-rays and 3D cone beam CT scans. We’ll even provide a free consultation for dental implants, so you won’t waste money on a service that doesn’t work for you.
If your jaw is not strong enough for standard dental implants, we may still be able to help thanks to revolutionary mini dental implants! These work just like standard implants, but they are smaller.
Planning Your Full-Mouth Reconstruction
When it comes to preparing for your treatment, we will use the advanced dental technology mentioned above to precisely plan each step of the process. We will also use our cutting-edge intraoral scanners to take a digital impression of your mouth so we can have your dentures made to exact specifications without the need for messy, uncomfortable impression methods.
Fountain Of Youth™ Dentures
George A. Hoop, DDS proudly offers Fountain of Youth™ dentures, a full-arch tooth replacement option that closely replicates the position, chewing power, and appearance of your natural teeth!
Because they are attached to dental implants, Fountain of Youth dentures will be securely held in place, prevent jawbone loss, and provide natural-feeling chewing power.
Unlike some other dentures options, Fountain of Youth dentures do not have a “sunken in” look because they are fitted in a position closer to where your natural teeth were. Fountain of Youth dentures also ensure this realistic appearance because they are crafted to replicate the height of your natural teeth!
Your Other Custom Options For Dentures
Because every patient has unique needs, we offer an array of options for dentures, including:
- Full dentures held in place by adhesive
- Partial dentures
- Implant-retained dentures
- Implant-supported dentures
We can even provide temporary dentures so you won’t have to go without teeth while your custom tooth replacements are being made!
Replace Missing Teeth To Stay Healthy
Did you know that missing teeth can also affect your overall health? Because chewing certain fruits and vegetables may be more difficult or even painful, many people with missing teeth do not maintain a diverse, healthy diet. If you have several missing teeth, your remaining teeth may also be experiencing undue stress.
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
When you visit George A. Hoop, DDS, our friendly team will treat you like family. We will listen carefully to your smile goals and explain all of your treatment options, so you can make an informed decision that suits your needs best.
We’ll also ensure your treatment is as pleasant as possible in a variety of ways. If there is any chance of discomfort, for example, we can numb the area with anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing. If you are nervous, we can also relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options, including:
- Nitrous oxide sedation, more commonly known as “laughing gas”
- Oral conscious sedation in pill form
We can also provide extended appointments so you won’t feel rushed! We’ll work at your pace!
