Dental Implants in Charlotte, NC
Are you Missing Teeth in Charlotte, NC?
If you have missing teeth, there are several dental restoration options available to you. The option that best replicates the look and feel of your natural teeth is dental implants. Charlotte periodontist Dr. Shannon Parsons recommends this highly successful replacement for patients with missing teeth.
What are Dental Implants in Charlotte, NC?
The dental implants used to replace your missing teeth are made up of three parts. The first part is a titanium post that is implanted into the jaw bone. Titanium is biocompatible and widely used in implants throughout the body. The second part is an abutment that connects the titanium post to the crown. The crown, which is the third and final part, is the only visible portion of the dental implants. Charlotte periodontist Dr. Parsons can have the crowns shaped and shaded to blend in with the teeth surrounding the space left by your missing teeth.

When replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, Charlotte periodontist Dr. Parsons will begin with a consultation to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Dental implants in Charlotte are performed in our office. A local anesthetic is used to make you comfortable prior to beginning the placement of your dental implants.
