Dental Implant Surgery-Tooth Loss Doesn't Have to be Permanent

Contrary to popular belief, tooth loss doesn’t 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 permanent dental restorations (replacement teeth) are more durable, more functional, and longer-lasting than even our natural teeth! 

At DFW Implant Center, our dental team, led by Arlington periodontist, Dr. Farhad Boltchi, has performed dental implant surgery for well over 25 years. If you’re 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.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Implants consist of three separate parts: a titanium implant post, an abutment, and a restoration (replacement tooth). 

The titanium implant post is a screw-like root, which is placed into the jawbone. Dental implant restorations include crowns, bridges, or dentures. The dental implant abutment connects the post to the restoration, completing the implant. 

Why Choose Dr. Boltchi For Dental Implant Surgery?

If you’re a resident of Arlington, TX and are in need of a set of replacement teeth, there is simply no better option than DFW Implant Center. With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Boltchi has placed over 6,000 dental implants, and remains at the forefront of dental implant technology. Dr. Boltchi uses guided surgery with ITX Pro for all of his implant cases, allowing for incredibly precise, custom surgical guides for each individual patient.

We use 360 Imaging for implant procedures, which produces detailed 3D anatomical guides for each and every implant patient. As a trained periodontist, Dr. Boltchi possesses the skill and artistry needed in order to deliver truly stunning esthetic results for each and every patient. 

Implant Solutions Available at DFW Implant Center

DFW Implant Center offers a wide range of implant solutions, so you can find the restoration that suits you most. 

  • Single Dental Implants – Exactly what they sound like, singular dental implants are topped with a dental crown and placed to replace one tooth.  
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – Implant-supported dentures are removable prostheses that replace several teeth at once. They attach directly to the jawbone using dental implants, providing improved stability for chewing, eating, and speaking compared to traditional dentures.
  • Full-Mouth Dental Implants – Full-mouth dental implants are complete arches of teeth. They’re akin to dentures, except the restorations are fixed in place by dental implants. 
  • Zirconia Fixed Bridges – Zirconia fixed bridges are a type of implant-supported bridge crafted using zirconia, a ceramic material made from zirconium. They’re extremely strong, as well as stain and odor-resistant.

Benefits of Dental Implant surgery

Dental Implants remain the gold standard for tooth restoration for a myriad of reasons, some of which include the following: 

  • Natural Look and Comfortable Fit: Dental implants look, feel, and function like your natural teeth, resulting in increased comfort and confidence when smiling, speaking, and eating
  • Improved Oral Health: Dental implants improve oral hygiene by allowing easier access between teeth for cleaning. Additionally, they allow your teeth to be restored without affecting adjacent teeth, which can help preserve your overall oral health
  • Improved Chewing Ability: Replacing missing teeth with implants restores up to 99 percent of your chewing ability, and helps you speak more clearly.
  • Improved Facial and Bone Features: Dental implants are anchored in your jawbone just like natural teeth. Over time, they will help preserve the jawbone and significantly reduce bone resorption, which can help maintain your facial features.
  • Long-Term Value: Because of their advantages over traditional tooth replacement options, dental implants provide excellent long-term value and can be a terrific investment in long-term oral health.
  • Durability: Dental implants are made of bio-compatible materials such as titanium, which offers strength and durability. They can last for many years with proper care.
  • Permanent Solution: Dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth that look and function like natural teeth, helping to improve a patient’s self-image and overall quality of life.
  • Predictable and Excellent Outcomes: Dental implants have predictable and excellent outcomes with improved appearance, speech, chewing ability, and overall oral health.
  • Safe and Practical: Dental implants are a safe and practical option for missing teeth. They look and feel like natural teeth and can improve your quality of life.

Dental Implants: Key Advantages Over Traditional Dentures

While traditional removable dentures are less expensive than full-mouth dental implants, they typically end up being the more costly option in the long run.

Dentures are prone to excessive slipping on the gums, producing friction that leads to pain, swelling, and in some instances, full-blown inflammation of the gums. Dentures also dramatically accelerate jawbone loss, which in itself can lead to a range of serious oral and systemic health complications.

Additionally, dentures require frequent repair and maintenance, which can of course be very costly over the long term.

The Dental Implant Surgery Process


At DFW Implant Center with Dr. Boltchi, the dental implant process begins with a consultation. During the consultation, Dr. Boltchi will evaluate your oral health, take X-rays, take images using 360 imaging, and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Dr. Boltchi will also discuss the dental implant process, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.


After the consultation, Dr. Boltchi will design a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. The treatment plan will include the number of dental implants needed, the type of dental implant, and the restoration options.


To prepare your mouth for your new dental implants, Dr. Boltchi will perform any necessary tooth extractions. These will be performed under anesthesia and we can provide sedation dentistry options as needed. We’ll also treat any underlying issues that may interfere with healing and implant integration, such as gum disease before your implants are placed.

Dental Implant Surgery

Before your dental implant surgery, Dr. Boltchi will prepare your mouth by cleaning the teeth and gums and administering anesthesia to numb the area. Then, he’ll make small incisions into your gums and insert the dental implant body into the jawbone in place of the tooth’s root. 


After the dental implant surgery, the gums and jaw will need time to heal. The healing process can take several months, during which time the dental implant will fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. The osseointegration process can last anywhere from three to eight months depending on your oral health. Dr. Boltchi will place a temporary restoration crafted from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) to protect your implant and preserve your smile until your permanent teeth can be placed. 

Restoration Placement

Your permanent restoration will most likely be attached out-of-office by a skilled prosthodontist, and any necessary adjustments can be made at our Arlington office. Attend all follow-up appointments so Dr. Boltchi can ensure your implants and restorations are working as intended.  

Dental Implant Surgery Aftercare

To preserve your dental implants, you’ll need to take proper care of them. Dr. Boltchi offers the following advice for ensuring the longevity of your dental implant solutions:  

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once daily to maintain healthy implants.
  2. Rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash to help prevent infection and promote healing.
  3. Avoid or reduce consumption of hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can damage the implant or restoration.
  4. Quit smoking, as smoking can increase the risk of implant failure.
  5. Attend regular dental check-ups at DFW Implant Center to monitor the health of your implants and oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions

While dental implants have a high success rate, there are risks involved, such as infection, implant failure, nerve damage, or sinus complications for upper jaw implants. Patients need to be aware of these potential issues and discuss them thoroughly with their implant dentist before undergoing the procedure. A trained professional will take steps to minimize these risks and educate patients on how to care for their implants properly.

Yes, dental implants can be placed in the front of the mouth. However, the procedure may require more planning and preparation to ensure that the implant looks natural and blends in with the surrounding teeth. 

Certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders, may affect a patient’s suitability for dental implants. Additionally, specific medications can impact the implant surgery or healing process. Patients with complex medical histories should inquire about potential contraindications and consult with their healthcare providers.

Dental implant surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia and is not painful. Many implant dentists offer sedation dentistry services to help further reduce pain and calm patients before dental implant surgery.
