Implant-supported bridges utilize dental implants instead of crowns or other frameworks. The dental implants are positioned into your jaw, forming a solid anchor as the bone and metal implant fuse together over time. Normally one implant is surgically positioned for each missing tooth, then these implants keep your bridge in the correct position. Your bridge is then created to match the color, shape, and size of your surrounding teeth. Your new Implant-supported bridge is then attached to the implants. Regarded as the most stable bridge option, an Implant-supported bridge usually involves 2 surgeries to complete this process. First you will have the implants positioned in your jawbone and then a second surgery is needed to place the actual bridge on the implants. An Implant-supported bridge procedure will let you to enjoy a healthy new smile and renewed confidence in your bite.

Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts
Bone grafting helps preserve your smile and the natural contour of your jaw by adding grafting material around gum disease-affected teeth or to places where tooth loss has occurred. Placing grafted material in areas of missing teeth strengthens and prepares the sites for dental implants. Rebuilding your bone in areas of deterioration provides a firm foundation to which your implants can fuse. When you lose an upper tooth, especially to gum disease, there may be little bone with which to work. A “sinus lift” can resolve that. During a sinus lift, a small opening is made in the sinus above the roots of the affected tooth to form a small, balloon-like space where your dentist will place the composite to secure the implant.

"Everyone is very pleasant and welcoming. I am very satisfied with the service and treatments that I always receive. I highly recommend this Dental Fac..."
"My sister had a filling come out of her tooth and we called Waxsaw Dental and they got her in the next morning. Since the Doctor she had gone to for years had retired, she was scheduled with Dr Marshall Earnest and his assistant Jenna. They were both very kind and professional. They explained all of the options clearly and were able to fix the tooth the same day. Since I wasn't the one being worked on, I was able to watch the procedure. They worked together seamlessly with such skill and calmness. It was very impressive and I would certainly recommend them."
"Waxhaw Dental Center staff are friendly and kind, and do excellent work. I'm especially pleased with my crowns. We pay out of pocket, so if the prices were a bit more affordable I'd give them 5 stars."

"I was bumped due to a Hygienist calling in sick. I waited 4 weeks for call back to reschedule.. Never heard back, so I had to call and make my own short notice cleaning appointment. I received new a hygienist and new DDS. The cleaning was a little rough but it was thorough. Customer service for client retention needs work."
