This may be accomplished via FaceTime, Zoom meeting or other platform whereby we may have a face to face encounter. These will be available to you, our patient, as a courtesy.

These are unprecedented times for us all. We strive to be on the front edge of the capabilities and service we provide our patients. Much of that depends on our availability and communication. We are here and we will, across any medium possible, provide the guidance you need during these difficult times.

Dental Implants Are Trustworthy Say Charlotte Dentists

By Dr. Pinnix on June 03, 2013


Dental implants in Charlotte are really taking off. Many dentists in the area say that this is because they can trust the implants to do the job that they need to do. In other words, they trust the implants, and they have seen them work out very well for their patients. They do not see problems with the implants that they have put in their patients for years and that is quality that our Charlotte dentists, Dr. Betancourt and Dr. Pinnix, can count on.

One of the biggest concerns for those who require implants is just how quickly they can get them. Our Charlotte dentist is typically able to put in the implant the same day that the bad tooth is removed. That is important so that the patient is not having to go around with a big gap in their mouth for very long as no one wants to face that potential embarrassment. We get you in and out with the dental implants are going in the same day that the bad tooth is removed.

The patient comes into the office to receive an implant. They are numbed up and receive the implant placed in the spot where their other tooth had been removed during one office visit, which we find to be important because it means that no patient is having to come back over and over with multiple appointments to get numbed.

The whole process is one of the easiest that you are ever going to see in a dentist office. There are some patients who are literally able to get the work they need done in as little as one hour. When that is done, they can go on with their day and their life smiling and much happier. Their bad tooth has been removed, and it has been replaced with something that they can be happy with. That is the beautiful of these implants and part of the reason they are so popular.
