Tooth loss can compromise your smile and may make it harder to bite and chew, but it doesn’t have to be permanent. Dental implants provide long-lasting and natural-looking tooth replacement.
We are happy to offer dental implant placement to our patients at Arch Dental Implants & Oral Surgery, providing a second chance for a beautiful, healthy smile.

What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants represent the standard of care for tooth loss. Each implant is a titanium screw carefully secured in the jawbone to provide an anchor for dental prosthesis, such as a crown. These replacement teeth are custom-made by your dentist and designed to look and behave like your natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Choosing dental implants over alternative methods, such as bridges and dentures, has several advantages.
- Unlike other methods, dental implants don’t require healthy, adjacent teeth to be modified or otherwise compromised.
- Dental implants are currently the only form of tooth replacement that actively preserve your jawbone, preventing reabsorption.
- Dental implants can last a long time with proper hygiene and care.
- Once fully healed, implants will allow you to maintain your smile and enjoy your favorite foods as usual.
Why Are Dental Implants the Preferred Method of Tooth Replacement?
Dental implants are unique in the way they provide long-lasting restoration while preserving your oral health.
When you lose a tooth and do not have it replaced with an implant, you are likely to experience the loss of bone, as the jaw requires a tooth to provide ongoing stimulation. Over time this can lead to unwelcome changes to your facial appearance while also making dental restoration more difficult. Implants provide the stimulation that keeps your jaw bone healthy and actively preserves your facial structure.
Additionally, implants are one of the only forms of tooth replacement that don’t require adjacent teeth to be sanded or shaved down. Implants allow you to ensure that a one-tooth problem remains a one-tooth problem, preserving the surrounding healthy and viable teeth.
