If you are missing one or multiple teeth, dental implants are a great way for you to regain your smile and replace your missing teeth. Implants can replace missing teeth, preserve your bone, and restore your smile in a natural way that will last! Our Arlington dentists and power couple, Dr. Sindhura Gundarpi and Dr. Sateesh Kumareddy, provide dental implants in Arlington, TX.
Dental implants are made up of two parts. The first is a small titanium post. This post is inserted into the jawbone to replace the roots of the missing tooth, which helps creates a solid foundation for a porcelain crown. This is the second part needed and is attached to the post to replace the actual missing tooth.
At the Arlington Dental Clinic, crowns are custom-made and designed to mirror your natural tooth. This will ensure your new teeth look and feel natural!
The best way to make sure you are a good candidate for dental implants is to have good overall oral health. You should have teeth that are free of gum disease and decay. It’s also important that you have enough bone mass in your jaw to provide a strong foundation for your dental implants.
If you don’t have adequate bone mass in your jaw, a bone graft is required before the placement of your dental implants. If you have suffered too much bone loss, meaning there is not enough bone to support the small titanium posts required to place the implant, you will most likely not qualify for dental implants.
Important: If you are a smoker, you may not qualify either. Call the Arlington Dental Clinic today to schedule a consultation with our dentists to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

The cost of dental implants varies in each situation. A single-tooth implant costs between $2,000 to $6,000. If you receive multiple dental implants, the cost of each tooth will be lower because some costs are applied once. If you require bone grafting, this will increase the cost of your treatment.
