Replacing one or more teeth is simple and long-lasting with our Clifton dental implants. They’re 100% dependable, allowing you to speak, laugh, and chew even the crunchiest and toughest foods without any worry. At the office of Michael Kushner DDS, we’ll do an expert job of placing your implants, and every step of the way beginning with he consultation.

When you come in for the first time, you will be examined, and testing will be done to determine if you’re a good candidate for our Clifton dental implants. Part of that is making sure your gums are healthy, and then taking x-rays as a way of seeing your overall jaw structure. If it isn’t thick enough to support the implant, bone grafting can be done to correct the problem. Your jaw bone is essential, because our Clifton dental implants are anchored in your jaw, with a full tooth and root just like with a natural tooth. If your jaw tissue is not up to standards, you would not get the reliable bond of your bone growing around the post and fusing with it. The next step is to surgically place the post, made of titanium. There is a waiting period of several months for the bone and post to fuse. A temporary denture can be placed during that time. A small support collar/anchor is then added to the post, after which a tooth-colored crown will be made from impressions taken at our office, and then cemented to the post. The collar/anchor will give additional support to the tooth. With proper care, you can get a lifetime of use out of your new implant.

Experience the difference that it makes to restore your full smile. Take that first step toward it. Schedule your consultation and examination by calling our Clifton dental implants office today.
