Dental Implants

Welcome
You are right in the home of quality dental implants, the Dental Implant Center. As the name of our clinic suggests, we are the Charleston dental clinic of choice for dental implants. Not just any implants, but the highly reputed IMTEC Sendax Mini Dental Implant.

What is a dental implant? A dental implant is a titanium post that is fixed in the jaw to replace the regular root of a tooth. A section of the post goes into the bone while the rest is where the new denture or bridge is fitted. Several of these implants can be used to replace several missing teeth, or if needed all the teeth.

Many people in Charleston South Carolina are now seeking dental implants, as these represent the modern solution for the teeth they may have lost through injury, periodontal disease or any other reason. This option beats the traditional bridgework procedure in tooth saving, because implants do not depend on the neighboring teeth for support.

Benefits of Implantology:
This is the ultimate solution in tooth replacement or dentures, a highly worthy alternative to bridges and partials. In fact, our very own Dr. Joseph Gillespie who is well accomplished in implants procedures, having successfully attended all courses offered by the IMTEC concerning the Sendax implant, recommends implants for the following reasons:

  • They give both top and bottom dentures a firmer support
  • They look and feel natural; many people forget they had lost a tooth/teeth
  • Boosts your social confidence knowing that your smile is complete
  • You will eat, speak and smile with comfort and confidence
  • With proper care and maintenance implants have the capacity to last a lifetime
  • With an implant you can have a permanent denture; no more worries of wobbling and clicking dentures, messy glues and pastes, or misplaced dentures

Despite all these benefits, dental implants are more suited for some people than others. This procedure demands adequate amount of bone in the jaw so as to support the implant. Inadequate bone implies that you may have to undergo ridge modification, whereby bone or a bone substitute is used to build the ridge. Implants also demand healthy gums that are periodontal disease-free.

These are however the issues that impede full-sized dental implants and not the Sendax type. The latter are only 1.8mm in diameter and do not require gum flapping or sutures meaning that courtesy of our clinic you will experience expedited recovery time and less gum soreness.
These are also some of the reasons why the Dental Implant Center offers free consultation aimed at assessing your suitability for this procedure. and any other procedures you may have to go through, so you can benefit from this revolutionary dental care solution.
