Your dental implant treatment at Charlotte Dental Arts is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals. You’ll first complete a consultation with our implant dentist in Charlotte, NC, where we’ll discuss your dental and medical history, take digital x-rays, and create a custom treatment plan. Next, you’ll undergo surgery, which may involve tooth extractions and bone grafting along with dental implant placement. We use fully guided techniques for all our surgeries to ensure an efficient procedure, with exact and predictable results. You’ll be resting comfortably under sedation and remain pain-free during your surgery. In many cases, we’re able to attach a temporary tooth or set of teeth at this same appointment. As your mouth heals over the next three or more months, you’ll be able to eat comfortably and enjoy restored smile aesthetics until you receive your permanent, custom-made dental implant restoration.

Dental implants provide numerous advantages over other tooth replacement options. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require healthy teeth to be present to support the restoration. Dental implants only need proper jawbone density to remain secure and strong, where they will in turn provide stimulation to keep the bone healthy. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanently secured in your jawbone and act like artificial tooth roots (implant posts). They are permanently fixed and stable enough to restore over 99% of natural biting and chewing power. For this reason, implants are one of the preferred solutions and virtually all patients who come to Charlotte Dental Arts are candidates for dental implants.
Dental implants can support a single dental crown or a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Dental implants can also be used to increase the stability of a modified denture, which snaps securely to the implants placed in the jawbone. For patients with many or all missing teeth, dental implants can permanently support a full, fixed bridge of artificial teeth. This solution makes it possible to eat any type of food with life-like, strong teeth. In all cases, dental implants improve your ability to eat comfortably, feel confident in a complete smile, and live an overall healthier and better quality of life.
