When you choose to replace missing teeth with dental implants in Arlington, you’ve chosen a solution that will transform your smile and improve dental function. Dental implants closely mimic the structure of natural teeth. An implant is a screw-like post made of the biocompatible metal titanium that is secured within the tooth socket of your jawbone. As the bone heals around the post, a strong bond is formed. Once you’ve completely healed, different types of restorations can be attached to the implant to restore a complete smile.
