Dr. Andrew C. Cobb offers expert dental implant care at his Washington, D.C dentist office. The benefits of dental implants compared to other options are extensive. Dental implants are the most natural-looking and innovative solution for replacing missing teeth. The dental implant procedure has significantly improved and now holds about a 98% success rate.
With proper care and routine dental visits, your dental implants can last forever. Our dentists can use dental implants to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or to secure a denture when you loose an entire arch of teeth. They provide a permanent, secure, and completely functional solution that will also support healthy bone growth in the jaw to maintain your natural appearance and profile.

Dental Implant Solutions in Washington, D.C.
If you’re missing one or two teeth:
Dr. Cobb can use a single dental implant to replace one or two teeth. Usually, we place the implant and restore it with a porcelain dental crown or bridge. Dental implants can be used to replace teeth that are congenitally missing or teeth that have been lost due to accidents, tooth decay, gum disease, or other reasons.
If you’re missing several teeth:
If you are missing several teeth in a row, Dr. Cobb offers dental implants that can be placed to support a hybrid bridge or partial denture. We call these implant-supported restorations. Some include implant-supported dentures, and implant-secured bridges.
If you’re missing all of your teeth:
We offer a variety of dental implant treatments to replace all of your missing teeth. We can also secure loose or poor-fitting dentures with the use of mini dental implants. All on Four dental implants offer immediate function dental implants, so you never have to go a day without your smile.
Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
Dr. Cobb will perform a full evaluation of the teeth, gums, and supporting bone structure to determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. Typically, an ideal candidate will have an adequate amount of bone structure, which is used to support one or more dental implants.
There are other forms of treatment that allow patients with an inadequate amount of bone structure to receive the dental implant procedure. Dr. Cobb and our dental care team work with you on an individual basis to assess your condition and recommend the most appropriate solution.
