What Greensboro patients can expect with the tooth implant process
Dr. Steven Hatcher
Missing teeth have a lasting impact. Whether the teeth have been lost to decay, disease, or injury, it can affect appearance, self-esteem, and oral health. If you are missing teeth, you may benefit from tooth implants. Implants closely mimic your natural tooth, restoring form and function to the smile. Many Greensboro patients are opting for tooth implants over other restorations.
What are tooth implants?
Tooth implants replace the root lost by a missing tooth. If you choose this restoration, here is what you can expect before, during, and after your procedure.
During your consultation, we can determine if you are a candidate for tooth implants. Ideal candidates will have good oral health and sufficient jawbone structure for support of the implant. If there is bone degeneration, patients may still be a candidate after a bone graft procedure. If we determine you are a candidate for implants, scans are taken to map out proper placement.
The implant procedure is performed in-office under local anesthetic. The mouth will be disinfected and numbed prior to placing the implant into the jaw. Once the implant has been placed, the hole will be closed and it will be left to heal for several months. During the healing process, the jawbone will fuse around the implant to become a secure support for a dental prosthetic. A temporary restoration can be used during this time. Once healing is complete, patients will return for their permanent restoration.
Once the healing is complete and the final restoration is placed, you will be able to enjoy a complete rejuvenated smile that looks and feels natural. There is no special care for dental implants, simply practice proper oral hygiene with routine dental visits.

Dr. Sona's blog
Dr. Steven L. Hatcher, DDS, FAGD
I had never been to this office and had an emergency this morning - my regular dentist was out of town - and I can't say enough about how well my 8 yr old was attended to by Dr. Sona!! Last night he lost about half of a front permanent tooth and she repaired it and gave great care and comfort to him and me! She is highly skilled and caring!
Alisia did a beautiful job in cleaning Mike's teeth. I watched every move. Had concerns how he would respond but it all went well. Her recommendation for another visit in 3 months is exactly what I think he needs as well. God Bless All of you & the staff
I have been a patient of Dr. Hatcher's for almost 4 years and enjoy the helpfulness and positivity of the entire staff. My cleanings, X-ray experience, and procedures have been thorough and beneficial to maintaining my health. Dr. Hatcher and his entire staff are wonderful to work with through dental anxiety. My fiance has had a deep fear of dentistry for many years. Dr. Hatcher's staff was very understanding and accommodating to his needs. They worked with him through the X-Ray and exam process and ensured his comfort with what was happening. On the day of oral surgery, the staff was very helpful and ensured he was comfortable and properly sedated during the procedure. They kept me informed of what was happening. They were very helpful to ensure that his pain was managed, we were informed, and proper healing was occurring. He doesn't remember the procedure itself, which is good. This has alleviated his fears to the extent that he is ready for future procedures and the overall health that they bring. Thank you for all that you do to bring quality dental care to your patients with the needs a whole person approach.
I've been going to Dr. Hatcher for a long time and will NEVER leave this practice. It's one of the most professional and personable practices there is. Wonderful dental care and wonderful staff.
My 2 1/2 year old would not open up her mouth or have anyone look at her teeth until we saw Dr. Sona. She LOVED it and is still talking about her pink tooth crown from her check-up!
Took my mother to see Dr Hatcher, him and everyone in his office was amazing. They actually care about their patients and the well being of them. I refuse to ever go to another dentist and I will recommend him to everyone I meet. Thank you so much for all your help!!! A++++++++++
The doctor and team are amazing. They take their time to get to know you and find out what is important to you. Wonderful experience with a great office that is so professional and knowledgeable! Highly recommend!
Dr Hatcher is very talented. The entire team listens and cares. It's wonderful that I can go to the dentist and not feel judged anymore. Thank you Dr Hatcher!
Dr. Hatcher and his staff are a wonderful group of people. He is knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and an overall excellent provider.
Dr. Hatcher's practice philosophy is unique, unlike any other dental office in the area. He takes time to get to know his patients and you actually get greeted by name and a handshake! He is up on the latest techniques and his passion shows. Highly recommend Dr. Hatcher and team.
I just wanted to say that Dr. Sona is awesome! Thanks so much for working with our patients. Your services are so very much needed and we are extremely appreciative!

Not only is Dr. Sona and her staff knowledgeable and friendly, but they listen to the patient’s needs to ensure a pleasant and productive visit. Thank you!
We took our almost 3 year old daughter in for her first "official" checkup. She had gone to my dentist office a few months ago, but would not open her mouth. Dr. Sona and Brittany were awesome with our daughter and she did great this time. Luckily, no cavities! All of the staff that we met were pleasant and welcoming. Happy to have been recommended here.
We love Dr. Sona!
The staff were extremely helpful during all phases of planning, everyone demonstrated the hightest level of professionalism, and the procedure went off without a hitch (as far as I can tell, though I may have tried to bite someone while under anaesthetic. I hate the dentist office THAT much!) I am looking forward to my next visit, which is a never-heard-before statement regarding dental visits. Dr. Hatcher and the staff provided a level of customer concern and care that I've never experienced anywhere else, especially in a dental office. Kudos to all of you for a job well done, and for transforming what I'd considered to be a fate worse than death into a pain free, pleasant, and even fun experience!
Been going to this office many years!! Love the staff, they always take good care of me!!

My first visit to Dr. Hatcher went great! The whole staff was really nice and very organized. You can tell the importance they place on customer service, it shows! Everything in the office was updated and comfortable, which was great. I would highly recommend Dr. Hatcher and his practice to anyone in the area.
Once again, I have just returned from a stress free, pain free trip to "the dentist". That's because MY dentist is Dr. Steven Hatcher in Greensboro, NC. His entire staff is so friendly and personal that I never feel rushed or like I am just another patient. Today I got the special treatment of actually getting to have bite wing x-rays, something my severe gag reflex has prohibited me from having in many many years. Dr. Hatcher has state of the art digital equipment that is available for use on patients like me. Thank you for a great cleaning and for your patience with me. I am all smiles! :)
Excellent patient care, from all the staff. Gentle, friendly and professional.
They did a great job with my cleaning. Very thorough and it’s always nice to hear Doctor Hatcher say “ You’re in good shape, Bernie.” WOO HOO!
Very professional and friendly staff. Dr Hatcher is very approachable and friendly. Everyone there makes you feel comfortable and calm while visiting a place that is probably not near the top of anyone's favorite places to visit list.
Dr. Hatcher and his staff are terrific people, they make you feel comfortable the moment you walk through the door. I'm terrified of the dentist but for whatever reason I felt very at ease in their office.
Okay, I'm not a huge fan of visits to the dentist, but I have NEVER had a bad experience in your office! I had been a former patient of Dr. Grubb, so I was a bit concerned when I heard he was retiring. No need to worry about that any more.. I’d recommend your practice to anyone!
Prompt appointments. Friendly staff. Quality work. Available if you need them. Quick without being rushed. What more can you ask for in a dentist?
The staff not only exceed my expectations for my personal dental care, but they provided wonderful care for my children. I don't have to worry about my children fearing dental care, they now look forward to it. Thank you so much!!!
Best Dentist and staff in Greensboro!
