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.  

Multi unit abutments

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.

Implant Crown for Missing Tooth Charlotte NC ~ Implant Dentist

We love helping patients in the Charlotte Hickory area who are missing teeth with dental implants.  My next patient came to see me missing his front tooth.  He did not want to get the teeth on either side ground down for a bridge.  

IMG_0091My patients smile with the missing front tooth.  As you can expect its hard to feel good about yourself with a missing front tooth!







X02003A dental implant was placed to act as the root for the missing front tooth.  Once it heals an abutment will be placed (the part that will come out of the gum) for the final porcelain crown to be attached to.











IMG_0136The implant was placed without having to make any cuts in the gum….so in a few weeks everything is ready to go for the final crown impressions. Here we can see the protective cover cap has been removed and the gum tissue is looking good for the final abutment.



IMG_0156The final porcelain implant crown is made at the dental lab.  In this case extra care was taken to add in special staining and texture to match the adjacent front tooth.  If these characterizations were not placed the front tooth would look fake and too white.  However it is up to the patient to decide what color they wish to have.









IMG_0153The porcelain implant crown shown here on the custom abutment.  There is a precise fit of the crown to the abutment.  This will keep the gum in good health and allow the patient to brush and floss the implant crown just like any other tooth in his mouth.  




IMG_0163Implant crown placed and now he can SMILE once again.  






Slide1What a huge difference getting a dental implant can make.  No more partial denture, no more taking something out of your mouth to clean everynight.  

Eat the foods you enjoy, smile as much as you want without the fear someone will notice your missing tooth. Let us help you enjoy the benefits that dental implants can offer.  Our offices for dental implants are near Charlotte NC and Hickory NC

Mini Dental Implant Bridge (Ken Clifford DDS Fixed Hybrid Denture Bridge is Here!)

Do you have a denture?  Would you like to get rid of it for good?  Well now thanks to mini dental implants and my good friend Ken Clifford you have that option.  Ken

A patient of mine came to me and said, 'Dr. Patel I am so glad that I had mini implants placed to keep my lower denture from coming out every time I tried to eat or talk….but can you give me some teeth that I don't have to take out?'Vicki Mathis 011 Vicki Mathis

After pondering the thoughts of how to make a bridge that most people could afford I saw my friend Ken at the Annual Academy of Mini Implant Dentists in Orlando.  He had a great idea; why not take high quality, 4 layer denture teethPortrait_colortooth (in my opinion they look better than some porcelain teeth I have seen) and make a fixed bridge for our patients who suffer with dentures?  The more I thought about it the more it made sense.

Why should we tell patients that if I take some really accurate impressions and then make a tracing of how your chewing motions are that I will be able to create a set of dentures that will work?  Its just not true…they might work…but I think most just make do with what they have.  Dentures resting on gum tissue and chewing muscles will always create some sort of problem.  Soreness in the gums, irritations when chewing foods that get under the denture, the list can go on and on and most denture wearers will attest to that.

So with mini implants in hand, and soon in our office, a Cone Beam 3D X-ray its 'time to get to work,' as Ken would say.  After some careful planning we decided to upgrade Vicki's ability to chew by adding 7 additional mini implants on the lower arch.  One Intra Lock 2.0 x 18mm was placed in between the four she had.  3 additional Intra Lock 2.0 x 11mm were placed on each side for a total of 11 mini dental implants. Vicki Mathis Clifford Bridge Pan These will be used to hold a molar to molar (Roundhouse) Fixed Hybrid Denture Tooth Bridge; also know in my office as the Ken Clifford Bridge.  This bridge will be cemented over the top of the mini implants and will not be removed by the patient.

The existing denture was modified to allow it to seat over the additional mini implants.IMG_7419   IMG_7418   She will comfortably wear her denture until the fixed set of teeth are made.


It will be designed in the same fashion as a traditional fixed hybrid bridge over regular diameter implants.   

I will continue the post as I get the model work back from First Impression's Dental Lab.
