As adults we often question the necessity of braces later in life. Why is that? Straightening teeth can prevent dental problems or the need for more extensive work later in life.


A dental implant is actually a root replacement, and unlike the root of a tooth, it is actually fused to the bone of the jaw. A crown is attached to the implant and becomes a stand­alone tooth, functioning and appearing just like the natural tooth you have lost. By contrast, a fixed bridge is a tooth restoration that is fixed in place by attaching to the natural adjacent teeth, which provide support on either side.

Therefore, we carry the experience, skill and state-of the-art equipment it takes to surgically place your dental implants as well as perform other oral surgery procedures that may be needed to qualify a patient for dental implants.
Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement. They have the ability to provide the most natural function, feel and appearance compared to conventional alternatives. However, successful dental implants require that patients have adequate bone to support the implant. Although jawbone loss can occur from injury or gum disease, it is common for patients to experience bone atrophy from a previous tooth extraction or tooth loss. Without proper jawbone stimulation from a tooth root, the surrounding bone can reabsorb, diminishing in quantity and quality. For such cases, oral surgeries such as bone grafting and socket grafting can be used to restore bone structure and help patients regain their candidacy for dental implants.

Bone Grafting

Today, modern dentists have the capability to regenerate and grow new bone through grafting procedures. Bone grafting is an ideal solution for patients that do not have enough jawbone to support a healthy dental implant. Bone grafting can involve a variety of graft material, including autogenous bone (a patient’s own bone), cadaver bone from a donor bank, bovine bone or synthetic bone. Our implant dentist will determine your graft material based on the location of your bone graft as well as the severity of your bone loss. In most cases, bone grafting is a minor procedure that can be done under local anesthesia. Bone grafting is an invaluable opportunity that allows patients to receive the most secure and longest-lasting tooth replacement option available.

Socket Grafting

For patients who are planning to get a dental implant and who need to have a tooth extracted, socket grafting is ideal. Socket grafting involves the immediate placement of a bone graft into the empty socket at the time of extraction. This not only works to maintain the natural contours of the jaw, but it also helps to preserve the maximum amount of bone volume so that the dental implant surgery is more predictable and successful. Bone remodeling after a tooth is removed can involve a 25% reduction in bone volume after the first year and up to a 60% decrease in bone width after 3 years. This risk can be eliminated when a socket preservation graft is performed.
During socket and bone grafting surgery, Gastonia Family Dentistry proudly uses the most sophisticated technology available. We use advanced 3D imaging equipment to ensure your oral surgery is precise and minimally invasive.
To learn if socket and bone grafting can qualify you for dental implants, please contact our practice today. We welcome the opportunity to restore your smile, regardless of your pre-existing conditions.

Isodry: This technology was built off of a past form of dental isolation, It keeps the patient’s mouth comfortable and open as well as controlling the oral humidity of the patient’s mouth. This technology also protects the patient from any foreign contaminates, while keeping the patient comfortable.



Healthier Teeth and Gums: Red and swollen gums can result from teeth that are overly crowded or spaced too far apart. This can also be a sign of gum disease! When teeth are straight the gums can fit tightly around the teeth making them easier to clean and reduce the swelling and redness. Clear aligner therapies can be very beneficial in straightening teeth and improving your periodontal health.

Time of Treatment: Traditional braces could lead to years of treatment. With the advancement of clear aligner systems we can achieve the results you desire much faster.

A Healthy You: Your mouth is a window to the rest of your body. The ADA has shown that oral infections can lead to much more serious systemic problems such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes. Clear aligners can make teeth easier to clean reducing the risk of possible complications. Call us today to schedule a FREE consultation




Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. Surgically placed below the gum, implants integrate to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. They can be used to replace any tooth including molars!

6Implants offer stability because they integrate to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by Dr. Kingsbury will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

How are “Computer Guided Implants” different? Using CEREC Cad Cam and 3D XG technology, Dr. Kingsbury can precisely place the implant in the ideal location using a surgical guide. This guide eliminates the need to cut a flap in the gum to expose the bone underneath, which in turn eliminates the need for sutures making it much more comfortable for the patient. In addition, using the surgical guide allows Dr. Kingsbury to place the implant in just the right position avoiding contact with nerves and sinuses.
