Completing Arlington Smiles with Dental Implants
Losing one or more teeth can be a devastating blow for your oral health, self-confidence, and overall quality of life. Thankfully, dental implants can transform a lacking smile for the better, seamlessly restoring strength and natural beauty. With the help of a board certified in-house specialist here at South Arlington Dental Care, Dr. Prachi Shah often provides the entire dental implant procedure at our convenient office location, taking you through impressions, placement, and restoration in a familiar, comfortable environment. We can’t wait for you to see the incredible results implants create! Contact our Arlington, TX practice today to schedule a dental implant consultation. Our team welcomes patients from all over the Arlington area, including Fort Worth, Burleson, Grand Prairie, Mansfield, and beyond.
Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?
Unlike traditional tooth replacement solutions, implants are designed to replicate more than just the crown of a tooth. They also focus on the root that’s hidden beneath the jawbone. Without a root in place, even patients who’ve had their teeth restored experience facial deterioration and higher risk of additional bone and tooth loss. Dental implants revitalize oral health and help patients avoid these concerns for a more satisfying result overall.
Dental Implant Process
After a thorough consultation, Dr. Shah determines whether or not you’re a viable candidate for dental implants. With the help of our board certified surgeon, our team can take the next step – surgically placing the implants within the jawbone. After this process is complete, patients typically undergo a healing period. This allows your new implants ample time to create strong bonds with natural tissue and bone to lay proper groundwork for your eventual replacement teeth.
Tooth Restoration Options
Once the mouth has fully healed, patients return to our Arlington, TX practice so Dr. Shah can design and create the perfect tooth restorations giving you back your beautiful, complete smile. When reconstructing a single tooth, a quality, all-ceramic dental crown can do the job without forcing patients to sacrifice the health of remaining teeth. In most extensive cases, our team typically recommends an implant-retained denture. This prosthetic is similar to a traditional denture, with one significant difference – it’s designed to attach over implants, giving patients a more secure fit overall. For a more permanent solution, a fixed implant supported bridge may also be considered for full mouth rehabilitation. This type of bridge is permanently secured onto four or more implants which stimulates bone maintenance and restores chewing function. Both fixed and removable options are available, depending on your preference!
