With dental implants, you can say goodbye to the unsightly spaces that used to hold real teeth. And you can do so with the option that is without a doubt the most beneficial one available. At Royal Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we are your source for the expert placement of implants.
What makes a dental implant different from a traditional fixed bridge or from removable dentures is that it is constructed so that it will replicate the best qualities of your natural teeth. That means it has a root beneath the gum line; one that is anchored securely in your jaw. The way that is done is through our Clifton dental surgery. You will come in for a consultation and examination, during which your eligibility for the procedure is determined. That basically means checking your gums to ensure that they are healthy, and testing your jaw bone, which must meet a certain level of suitability in terms of both thickness and strength. By the way, both of those qualifying features can be corrected in most cases with proper treatment. Moving forward, our Clifton dental surgery is used to place the post, made of titanium, into your jaw. Over the course of the next few months, your jaw bone grows around the post. Eventually, they become fused. At that point, the next phase is to take impressions that are used for the making of the tooth that will be cemented to the top of the post. Together, these components create a reliable new tooth that allows you to speak and chew with full confidence. And with good care, there is every reason to expect it to last for many years, and possibly for life.
Our Clifton dental surgery can be done for the replacement of one tooth, or multiple teeth. All you need do is contact our office to schedule an appointment to come in.
