Dr. Gentry is the only dentist you will ever go to after your first visit. "

The care given by her and her very professional staff is designed to keep the patient as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend her practice to anyone seeking dental care."

  • "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."

What’s the difference between a bridge and an implant?

Dental Implant in Mouth | Gentry Dental Tooth ReplacementA bridge is 3 or more crowns splinted together with a false tooth to replace the tooth you are missing. Fixed bridges are cemented in place (they are not removable), and require extra effort to clean under them. Although they are sometimes still used to replace missing teeth, they may not be the best option for you, since there is a risk to the neighboring teeth that have to be prepared for the bridge to fit. Bridges generally have to be replaced every 5-15 years.

A dental implant implant is most similar to a natural tooth. Implants consists of two pieces, a titanium post and a porcelain crown. The post is implanted into the bone and then the crown is attached after a brief healing process. A benefit of an implant is that the adjacent teeth do not have to be cut down. They are easy to clean with regular brushing and flossing and can last 30+ years with proper care. 

If you are in need of tooth replacement, contact our office at (704) 554-1007 to learn about all of our options. Dr. Gentry is skilled in both dental implants and bridges and will be happy to help!
