Your smile and how confident you are with it is important to us at Mint Hill Dentistry. We want you to be able to smile anytime you want and know your teeth look wonderful. If you are currently hiding a missing tooth or several teeth, we are here to help.
Be proud of your full, natural looking smile once again! A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry and can restore a single tooth or an entire set of teeth. Simply a replacement “tooth root,” dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post directly into your jawbone by one of Mint Hill Dentistry’s trusted doctors. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a sound foundation to attach your custom crown, bridge, or denture.
We perform a bone grafting procedure when the patient’s jawbone needs to be built up to accommodate an upcoming dental procedure. At Mint Hill Dentistry, we use bone grafting mostly to rebuild the gums in preparation for dental implant placement, but it can also be used to reverse the loss of bone that may have occurred due to tooth loss, trauma, disease or ill-fitting dentures.
PRF is an exciting technique that is relatively new to the field of biologics in dentistry. With PRF, the dentist completes a blood draw and places the vaccutube in a special centrifuge that separates the blood into layers. This process concentrates the patient’s own growth factors and healing properties from their blood into a material that can be used during surgery to greatly increase healing post-operatively.
