Carrie P.
Dr. Patel was very fast and efficient. Lawrence was helpful and considerate of my comfort level. The entire team made sure I was aware of any potential issues and gave excellent feedback. I think the atmosphere in this place was amazing from the time I entered until I left. Great reception staff and all around great experience. I really felt like I was heard and cared for . Definitely will return for all other dental needs.
Fran F.
First time at Highland Creek Modern Dentistry and I love it. I had a wonderful experience. The office was very clean and bright. The staff was very professional and Dr. Patel was so warm, personable and made sure I was comfortable. She was very thorough in explaining my dental needs and concerns. Loved her!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place.
Shayla F.
My son and I both went here for a routine exam and cleaning. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The office was very clean,open and practical. The front desk was very nice and knowledgeable in explaining some of my general insurance questions. Dr. Patel was also very nice and very thorough when explaining what she was doing and our treatment plans at the end. I could not have been happier with the service. The rest of my family will now go here too.
Nirali P.
Dr. Patel and her team are amazing! From checking in to getting my teeth cleaned, the entire process was seamless. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a dentist
Bethany R.
In a world where it takes forever to get any kind of medical appointment, I needed a reliable dentist- *quickly* - following serious trauma to my front tooth. Dr. Patel was beyond helpful and efficient in providing me the appropriate care that I needed as well as eased my nerves throughout the process. Our family has been looking for a new dentist for a while now and there is no doubt we will be continuing our dental care at this practice! Not to mention, her office space is beautiful, warm, and welcoming!
Allyson P.
I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Patel. She is so warm, personable, and thorough in her explanations of every step. It's clear that she's trying to do the best thing for you and what you're most comfortable, instead of racking up your bill (a problem I had with the last dentist I tried). Her office is lovely and modern, her staff all incredibly kind, and the scheduling and online portal tools are incredibly convenient. I am definitely a patient for life after my first visit today.
Janet K.
Dr Patel was amazing! Her office is so bright and fresh and clean and her patient care is the best I’ve ever experienced. I will never go to another dentist here in the Charlotte area.
Shannon C.
As a new patient, I felt well taken care of from beginning to end. Dr. Patel, Glenn and Melissa were all so caring and exemplified the true meaning of professional patient care. I will definitely be returning and referring family and friends to the Highland Creek Modern Dentistry practice.
Matthew F.
Best dental visit experience ever. Friendly informative staff. We found our new family dentist!
Megan B.
Such a wonderful experience (and I hate the dentist haa). This office was kind, helpful and enjoyable.
Went in for a cleaning and I was extremely pleased with how nice everyone was. The space looks really good and I will be returning with the rest of my family.

What are Dental Implants?

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The Process of Getting Dental Implants

The process of getting dental implants typically involves several steps, including:

  • Consultation: Our experienced dentist will examine your mouth and jawbone during your initial consultation to determine if dental implants are the right option for you. She will also discuss your dental history, overall health, and any concerns or questions you may have.
  • Treatment Plan: After your consultation, our team will develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs and goals. This plan will outline the number of implants needed, the type of replacement teeth, and the timeline for your treatment.
  • Implant Placement: The next step is to place the dental implant into your jawbone surgically. This is typically done under local anesthesia and sedation to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  • Healing: After the implant is placed, you will need to allow time for the bone tissue to fuse with the implant. This process typically takes several months.
  • Abutment Placement: Once the implant has fully fused with the bone tissue, the abutment will be placed onto the implant to connect the replacement tooth or teeth.
  • Replacement Teeth: The final step is to attach the replacement teeth to the abutment. Our team will work with you to ensure that your replacement teeth are comfortable, functional, and natural-looking.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a range of benefits for patients with missing or damaged teeth. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Improved Appearance: Dental implants are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
  • Improved Speech: Missing teeth can affect your ability to speak clearly. Dental implants can help improve speech clarity and confidence.
  • Improved Comfort: Implants are a comfortable and secure option for replacing missing teeth. They do not slip or move like dentures, which can cause discomfort and irritation.
  • Improved Oral Health: Dental implants can help improve oral health by preventing bone loss and preserving the surrounding teeth.
  • Improved Self-esteem: Missing teeth can have a negative impact on your self-esteem and confidence. Dental implants can help restore your smile and improve your overall quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

Some dental insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost of dental implants, while others may not. It is important to check with your dental insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage for dental implant treatment. At Highland Creek Modern Dentistry, we offer flexible payment options, including financing, to help our patients afford dental implant treatment.

Can dental implants be done in a single visit?

The dental implant procedure typically involves several appointments over a period of a few months. The first appointment involves consultation and evaluation of the patient's oral health and suitability for dental implants. The next appointment involves the surgical placement of the implant into the jawbone, followed by a period of osseointegration, during which the implant fuses with the bone. Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, the final step involves the placement of the dental prosthetic, such as a crown or bridge.

Are dental implants suitable for everyone?

Dental implants are suitable for most people who are missing one or more teeth. However, some factors, such as the patient's overall health, the jawbone's condition, and the missing tooth's location, may affect the suitability of dental implant treatment. A dental implant provider can evaluate a patient's specific needs and determine if dental implants are viable.

What is the recovery process like after getting dental implants?

After getting dental implants, patients may experience some soreness and swelling in the area for a few days. It is important to avoid chewing hard or sticky foods during the first few weeks of recovery to allow the implant to properly fuse with the jawbone. Patients should also maintain good oral hygiene habits, such as regular brushing and flossing, to prevent infection and ensure proper healing.

What is the success rate of dental implant procedures?

Dental implant procedures have a high success rate, with an average success rate of around 95%. Factors that can affect the success rate of dental implants include the patient's overall health, the location of the implant placement, and the skill and experience of the dental implant provider.

What are the benefits of dental implants over other tooth replacement options?

Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options, such as dentures and bridges. Some of the benefits of dental implants include:

  • A natural-looking and permanent solution to missing teeth
  • Improved ability to chew and speak
  • No need for adhesives or messy creams
  • Preserving the natural structure of the jawbone
  • Preventing the surrounding teeth from shifting

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution to missing teeth. With proper care, dental implants can last for many years and even a lifetime. Patients should maintain good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing, and visit the dentist for regular checkups to ensure the longevity of their dental implants.

Are dental implants painful?

The dental implant procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and sedation, which numbs the area and minimizes discomfort during the procedure. Patients may experience some soreness and swelling after the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and should subside within a few days. Overall, the procedure is considered to be relatively painless.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the number of implants needed, the location of the implant placement, and any additional procedures that may be required. At Highland Creek Modern Dentistry, we offer flexible payment options to help our patients afford dental implant treatment.
