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.

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.
