Dental Implant Teeth Charlotte NC

Missing all your teeth?  Do you not wear your denture?  One solution is to have dental implants placed by Dr. Paresh to hold in your fixed teeth.  


Upper Jaw with no teeth left.  Who would want to spend the rest of their life without teeth or not being able to wear their denture?


My same patient's lower jaw.  You can see how skinny the jaw becomes when there are no teeth or dental implant to help keep bone and gum tissue in place.  

Fortunately at our office near Charlotte we have a 3D CT xray machine.  With that dental implants can be accurately planned to help as anchors for fixed porcelain crowns.

Dental Implants placed by Dr. Paresh for an all on 4 dental implant type solution.  In this case there was enough bone to place 6 dental implants to support a screw retained set of porcelain crowns.


The same solution was done on the lower jaw as well; an all on 4 concept.  Once again enough bone was found on the CT x ray to allow for 6 dental implants to be placed. 


Plastic PMMA temporary crowns are placed over the dental implants to verify esthetics.  


Upper jaw Plastic screw retained temporary teeth with pink to replace the missing gum tissue.


Final custom posts are placed over the implants in the lower jaw to help hold the porcelain crowns. 


Final upper jaw implant crowns are screwed into place ready for the patient to enjoy his smile and ability to eat once again.

Intra Lock Mini Dental Implant to Replace a Missing Tooth with a Crown

With over 75 Million Americans missing at least one tooth I am amazed that there are not more mini dental implants being placed.



Typical of what most patients who are missing teeth have.  A empty spot somewhere in the middle of their teeth….just past the smile line.  If they smile big enough you see the empty space.  This is easily and painlessly corrected with 2 short visits to the dentist and a mini dental implant and crown.





In this patient case a Intra Lock MILO 3.0mm mini dental implant was placed from Shatkin FIRST.  No surgery, no flap of gum tissue was cut, no bone was added.  Just a simple procedure to gently rotate the mini dental implant into the gum.  A small dental bit was used to create a opening in the gum the size of a pencil lead. Notice the lack of bleeding or trauma to the surrounding gum tissue.


Internal view of the Porcelain to Metal crown that will be cemented over the mini dental implant.  Sometimes I am asked is there a fit to the crown?  In this case there is a true fit, the crown will not rotate as it intimately adapts to the square base on the mini dental implant.

Final x-ray of the crown over the mini dental implant.  Easy to place, easy for the patient to keep clean and a cost effective way for patients to consider dental implants that otherwise would just walk around with a missing tooth. 

Implant dentistry is not just for the wealthy.  It is and should be for everyone. Technology and forward thinking dentists such as Todd Shatkin have created a solution that most patients need and most dentists can perform.  Easy implant placement courses to consider:
