The dental implant expertise of Dr. Derek Hoffman may make him the perfect candidate to give you the smile you deserve.
Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement treatments, but you don’t need to travel hundreds of miles to find a qualified implant specialist. There’s no need to pad the cost of your treatment with factors like gas, lodging, and travel expenses.
Put your trust in a dental implant provider who’s right here in your hometown. For patients in Lincoln, NE, Dr. Hoffman at Family and Implant Dentistry can provide restoration services with the security of having an expert who’s always close at hand.
Dental implants, like many serious medical or dental procedures, represent a significant financial commitment. We understand why prospective patients may hesitate at the cost of the procedure.
We’d encourage you to be wary of “discount dental implants,” as these are often made from lower-quality materials that could be harmful to your health. When you’re researching dental implant providers in your area, consider financing options for the procedure.
At Family and Implant Dentistry we use only the safest and most reliable materials for dental implant procedures. We accept a wide range of dental insurance providers and will work closely with CareCredit to ensure you receive an affordable payment plan. You can even pay your bill right on our convenient website.
Experience can be a key factor in achieving the lasting result you deserve from your dental implant treatment. You wouldn’t want to entrust your dental implant procedure to a dentist who is fresh out of dental school or who has only taken a single course in oral implantology.
Keep an eye out for dentists with experience in applying and maintaining dental implants. There are even institutions and courses dedicated to keeping dentists up to date on the latest advancements in implant techniques and technology.
Never be afraid to ask your provider about their dental implant success rate! Good providers will often have some before and after photos to share along with patient testimonials. Assess your provider’s skill and the final results for other patients. It pays to be curious!
If you’ve been told by a provider that you’re not a good candidate for dental implants, don’t lose heart. There may be a variety of steps that you can take to improve your candidacy.
Some patients need supplemental treatments or have a compromising bodily health condition that temporarily delays their eligibility for dental implants. Sometimes, providers aren’t experienced enough to address your specific needs. Come see us at Family and Implant Dentistry for a second opinion — you can trust Dr. Hoffman to give you an accurate evaluation and recommend the best next steps.

Most patients with missing teeth will find that they are good candidates for dental implants. Perfect oral health is not a requirement for restorations, but some conditions may need to be remedied prior to a dental implant procedure.
Some patients need to abandon habits like smoking and heavy drinking before receiving dental implants to ensure that the healing process is not compromised. Dr. Hoffman will work with you to ensure that a dental implant treatment never compromises your overall health.
You’ll experience no pain during the surgery for dental implants. Any discomfort that follows during recovery is usually easily managed with anti-inflammatory medications and subsides rapidly.
While there is usually a very short healing period after receiving your dental implants, you’ll be back to enjoying your favorite foods not long after your procedure. Most patients find dental implants to be much more comfortable in the long run than dentures, they’ll feel and function just like natural teeth.
You’re never too old to restore your smile with dental implants. Dental implants can strengthen jawbone density and prevent the deterioration that comes from wearing dentures. The ease of care for dental implants can also make them an ideal choice for older patients.
