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... Continue reading

Dental Implants have become one of the best ways to replace a missing tooth. The implant acts as a post or a root replacement so a crown or implant bridge can be connected. Once this is done you do not remove the crown or implant bridge....its as close to a real tooth as you can get today. My patient comes in with her front tooth broken at the gum line. There is still the root of the tooth in place that will have to be extracted before the dental implant can be inserted. The dental implant is placed after the... Continue reading

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... Continue reading

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

Suffering from you upper denture moving around or gagging you? Then consider mini dental implants if you have lost some bone and can't have traditional size implants without grafting or adding bone. My patient's upper ridge. What looks like a wide ridge is mostly gum tissue. Because of this thin ridge the use of mini dental implants here will be a good choice to consider. Other options that would also work well are to expand the bone or do sinus lifts and place traditional size implants. 4 Traditional size implants would work to hold in a secure upper denture. To...

My next patient had come in to see me because her tooth broke from where she had a Root Canal. She asked me if I could do a bridge to replace the missing tooth behind the one she broke. I asked her why would she want a bridge when we could easily place an implant and not have to grind away healthy tooth structure? She said....'you know Dr. Patel, because an implant is so expensive and probably causes a lot a pain, with all that surgery, cutting my gums open and all.' Nothing could be further from the truth. Most... Continue reading

My next patient was a young 27 year old. She had such a lovely personality; but she would not smile. How sad. Her story was typical....lost her teeth at a young age due and now wanted to do something just for her. Photos of her missing teeth right and left sides. On my first glance it looked like she had lots of bone to place implants. But on further investigation by doing some ridge mapping (the process where the dentist numbs the gum tissue and feels with a perio probe to see what is gum tissue and what is bone)...

So the big day is here for my patient. She was one of the first that I tried the new Glidewell Inclusive Mini Dental Implants. These mini implants will help to secure in a full upper and lower denture. With Glidewell the 'snaps' come processed into the dentures. With Vicki in the chair I said, 'Open Wide' lets see if these snap in' The upper went in, the lower was next. My patient and I looked at each other...was that it? Did they snap in? She moved her lips and mouth around....they are in she said. Smile from the right... Continue reading

Although I like mini dental implants for lots of reasons, I do find the need for a regular size lots of times. In some cases a regular traditional size implant will work better. This example might be one of them. This patient had lost a Root Canal Molar with massive amounts of bone destruction. Clinical view shows a WIDE ridge of bone. However under the gum is just a thin shell of bone and then the sinus cavity (air). This would be a great place to consider a regular size implant and a sinus lift instead of a mini dental...
