Charleston Dentists

Many thanks for visiting the website of one of the best Charleston dentists in the field of dental implants, Dr. Joseph Gillespie.

What is a dental implant?
This is a small titanium screw that is fitted into the gum and upon which a crown can be attached. It can also be used to anchor a denture in certain persons thus making it more stable. This will stop the denture from slipping and will as such avoid sore gums. A dental implant is therefore a suitable alternative to conventional bridge work that involves grinding away at healthy teeth so as to provide support for new/cosmetic tooth/teeth.
These benefits have seen many people start seeking dentists in Charleston from whom they can source dental implant services. However, not all dentures are the same. This is evident in persons who do not have enough bone in their jaws to support an implant or hold up to the rigors of traditional implant surgery.

A new solution
It is for the above reasons that the IMTEC Sendax Mini Dental Implant was developed. This is a much smaller implant (still made of titanium alloy) measuring 1.8mm diameter. With it, the above issues presented by the conventional implant are solved. In fact, with the IMTEC Sendax implant we are looking at a minimally invasive implant technique that saves patients procedures such as gum flapping or sutures that were typical of conventional implants fitting. Accordingly, patients now enjoy faster recovery times and much less soreness of the gums than before. Also, unlike conventional implants which took around six months to be completely installed and to function well, the IMTEC Sendax takes just an hour for the installation. You can therefore have the process done in the morning and still get to enjoy lunch with minimum soreness in your gums.

Why is the Dental Implant Center best for handling IMTEC Sendax Mini Dental Implant?
In addition to being one of the best Charleston dentists, Dr. Joe has also covered all the courses provided by IMTEC concerning this implant and has further undergone numerous classes and seminars on implantology.
