Contrary to the belief of millions of patients worldwide, tooth loss and tooth decay does not have to be permanent. Although traditional removable dentures used to be the method of choice for replacing missing teeth, modern dentistry has advanced to the point where dental restorations (replacement teeth) are more durable, more functional and longer-lasting than even our natural teeth! At Boltchi Perio Implant Concepts in Arlington, TX, our team has done dental implant placements for well over 25 years. If you are missing teeth and you’re ready to take the first step toward achieving a brand-new smile, call us today to schedule your initial implant consultation.
Fixed dental implants are the best modern-day option to correcting severely damaged teeth and replacing missing teeth. Implants consist of three separate parts: a titanium implant post, an abutment, and a restoration (replacement tooth). After removing damaged tooth and root structures, periodontist Dr. Farhad E. Boltchi will surgically place the implant post into the jawbone. The abutment is then attached to the implant post, which allows the final restoration to be permanently fastened to the implant. In terms of adequate candidates for dental implant surgery, anyone that has missing teeth and/or severely damaged or rotting teeth is considered a candidate. Surgical placement of the implant is typically completed in a single office visit; however, full healing can take anywhere from three to eight months depending on the oral health of the patient.
One of the biggest concerns patients face when considering dental implant surgery is whether or not the procedure will hurt. To be clear, it is impossible to drill into the jawbone and surgically place titanium implant posts without some level of discomfort. However, we take every approach to deliver a nearly pain-free surgical process, and this includes a full range of IV, nitrous and oral sedation options. In many instances, our patients don’t even remember going into the procedure room for their surgery! We also offer a complete range of implant options, including single and multiple implants, full implant supported dentures, and full arch dental restorations (full mouth dental implants). As a trained periodontist with over two decades of experience, Dr. Boltchi possesses the skill and artistry needed in order to deliver truly stunning esthetic results for each and every patient. He places temporary full arches that are crafted from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), then for the placement of final prostheses, patients will be referred to a prosthodontist. For world-class dental implants in Arlington, TX, there is simply no better option than Boltchi Perio Implant Concepts.
Another thing that sets Boltchi Perio Implant Concepts apart compared to other implant dentists in Arlington, TX is our dedication to affordability. We believe everyone should have access to quality dental care, which is why we offer a range of payment options that suit most patient’s financial situations.
