No More Loose Dentures ~ Dental Implants Charlotte NC

Full upper or lower dentures can me made to look like all your natural teeth, however getting them to say in place when eating or doing any day to day activities can be a challenge.  If you rarely wear your dentures because you cant keep them in or they hurt then dental implants by Dr. Paresh may be the solution you are looking for. 


A patient came to see me on a referral from his general dentist.  His front teeth are connected together with a porcelain bridge.  This bridge is failing and he has advanced periodontal disease that has left him with very little bone supporting the roots of his other teeth.


The lower jaw is in about the same condition.  A few teeth that have no hope and need to be extracted. 


His teeth were extracted and on the same day 4 dental implants were inserted in the upper jaw and 4 dental implants were inserted into his lower jaw.  These dental implants will be allowed to heal.  After the healing process snaps will be placed into the implant and a set of 'snap in dentures' will be made. 


View of the healed upper jaw and the 4 dental implants with the protective healing cap removed.  Excellent tissue health was achieved.  If at any time in the future this patient decides that he wants fixed teeth on dental implants a few more implants will be placed and 10-12 porcelain crowns can be made.  


View of the healed lower jaw of the 4 dental implants.  The same can be accomplished on the lower jaw; fixed teeth at any time with the addition of a few implants.  


The upper implant denture is made with a cast metal horseshoe shape.  This is done to keep the denture strong as well as free up the roof of the mouth to keep the patient from gagging. 


LOCATOR snaps are placed into the dental implants(gold attachments to allow the denture to snap into place)


The same is done for the lower jaw. 4 LOCATOR attachments on 4 Dental Implants


The snaps are fitted into the dentures and now NO MORE LOOSE DENTURES! 

If you are interested in this kind of implant dentistry or having fixed implant teeth in Charlotte see Dr. Paresh to see if you are a candidate.

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
