  • "As you walk in and are happily greeted by reception the first thing you notice is the care that has been taken to create a relaxing and comfortable environment while you wait, albeit a short wait. Perhaps most importantly your cleaning is done with the gentlest touch as every care is taken to avoid discomfort. Dr. Gentry is every bit an educator as she is a highly skilled dentist. While being seen she thoroughly explained, in easily understood terms, what was going on behind my lips and how to best continue good oral hygiene practices. Gentry Dental sets the bar high."

Dental Implants in Charlotte, NC

Older Couple Smiling | Dental ImplantsDaily life with a missing tooth can be challenging.

You may have difficulty chewing and eating your food, and this impacts your nutrition and health. You may also feel embarrassed or self-conscious about talking or smiling in front of others, which affects your confidence and your relationships. A missing tooth can also change the appearance of your face, making you look much older than you are.

Did you know that missing teeth also impact your oral health?

Missing Teeth and Oral Health

Besides the struggles you may have with your confidence, appearance, and nutrition, your oral health also suffers when your tooth is missing.

This is because without a root, your bone has nothing to support, and it will begin to deteriorate. Without a tooth, your remaining healthy teeth will begin to shift into the open space, causing misalignment and a higher risk of gum disease and fractures.

The good news is that dental implants can help!

What Is a Dental Implant?

Using a titanium post and a porcelain crown, a dental implant restores both your tooth and your root, protecting the integrity of your oral health. The biocompatible post is surgically placed into your bone where it’s allowed to heal, integrate, and create a stable foundation for your new tooth.Dental Implants Charlotte NC | Gentry Dental

After the appropriate healing time, your new crown attaches to your implant and will function just like your natural tooth. You’ll be able to eat, chew, and brush your tooth just as you were used to doing.

Implants are a reliable treatment, offering a 95% success rate. With excellent home care and regular dental checkups, your implant can potentially last for decades, making it a very cost-effective investment in your smile.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dr. Gentry can determine whether or not implants will work for you with a thorough examination and x-rays. For dental implants to be successful, we look for these factors:

  • There is enough healthy bone structure to support the implant.
  • The patient is in good overall health.

3-D cone beam imaging, one of the technology items used in Gentry Dental, allows us to determine whether you have enough bone and exactly where to place your dental implant for the best results. 3D technology assists in more accurate and precise placement of your implant, which ensures optimum results. Dental implants work well for most patients; however, if you’re lacking healthy bone, Dr. Gentry can perform bone grafting to restore your bone and support your implant.

At Gentry Dental, we’re proud to offer comprehensive implant treatment and state-of-the-art technology, which you may not find at other practices. Dr. Gentry’s advanced training allows her to handle both the surgical placement and restoration of your implant. We’re happy to ensure that you’ll be surrounded by the team you know and trust from start to finish without having to go elsewhere for your care.
