Dental ImplantsIf 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.
CrownsThe 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.
DenturesImplant supported dentures allow you to enjoy the security of implants while spending less. Denture wearers often complain of the shifting and clicking that occurs when speaking. With this anchoring method, dentures are affixed by dental implants. Charlotte, NC periodontist, Dr. Shannon Parsons can use implant supported dentures to give you back the stability you have lost due to weakly adhered dentures.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Flap SurgeryOsseous surgery, or flap surgery, is usually performed when a pocket around a tooth (or teeth) has not responded to other treatments. The procedure is performed in order to create a clean environment around the tooth so that the tooth can be retained rather than lost. Osseous surgery is generally tried only after other treatments have been explored and tried and usually is performed when the pocket depth has worsened over time.
Gum SurgeryLaser gum surgery: Charlotte, NC periodontist Dr. Parsons successfully treats gum disease with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, a laser gum surgery. LANAP®, performed in his practice for dental care in Charlotte, renders less pain and less downtime for patients.
Bone GraftingThe dentist may place a mixture of your bone marrow and some bone-grafting material around the bone graft to help speed healing. The incision is then closed with stitches.
Periodontal SurgeryGum grafting is a common periodontal procedure used most often to improve the esthetics of a smile that is considered too "gummy". If you feel that your teeth are too long, cosmetic periodontal surgery can improve the look of your smile.
