Tooth Replacement

At Royal Oak Dental Group, our dental teams pride ourselves on our dedication to the highest quality treatment by talented and competent clinicians. We know that losing teeth can feel frightening and traumatic, which is why our team will support you by providing outstanding care and accurate information throughout the process.

Providing Dental Implant Placement & Restoration

The first of two components to implant treatment is the surgical placement of a titanium screw into your bone. The second is the restoration of the titanium screw after your implant and bone fuse together in a process called osseointegration.

A number of different approaches exist for different oral situations, which is why our restorative and surgical teams will work to identify which approach will be most appropriate in your unique case. Implant treatment can be successful for the replacement of one, multiple, or all of your missing teeth.

Prior to any surgical placement of implants, our dentists first design the future restoration, and then virtually position the implant. To ensure accuracy in surgical placement, we will create a surgical guide that will allow us to precisely place the implant according to our virtual plan.

Dental Bridges

In some cases, it may be more advantageous to utilize remaining teeth to fabricate a dental prosthesis known as a bridge, which will adhere to your adjacent teeth. The advantage to this dental treatment option may be aesthetics, or simply avoiding multiple costly surgeries.

The longevity of this restoration requires special attention to restoration design, how adjacent teeth are prepared, the impression technique, insertion and cementation protocol, and controlling occlusal (bite) forces. When we couple our clinical considerations with your excellent home hygiene protocol, your restorations can survive for decades.

Removable Partial Dentures

A very economical tooth replacement option is the removable partial denture. The benefit of the removable partial denture is that it can replace one or multiple teeth without adding additional cost. However, it is critical to optimize the health and contours of all the teeth that will remain and be incorporated into the engineering and design of the removable partial denture.

These prostheses require high quality laboratory craftsmanship in order to be as comfortable, stable, and retentive as possible.

Complete Dentures & Affordable Dental Care

If you or someone you know is one of the forty million Americans who have lost or will lose all of your teeth, please do not fret, because we can help. Complete dentures are not replacement teeth; they are a prosthesis meant to aid you in function and speech, while restoring aesthetics.

Most people do just fine with maxillary (upper) dentures, but many struggle with mandibular (lower) dentures because of the decreased surface area available for dispersing chewing forces, as well as decreased surface tension retaining the denture in place. Our dentists highly recommend the use of one or two dental implants to aid in the retention of lower dentures.

Dear Patient:
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy as we all collectively do our best to navigate the COVID-19 health crisis. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout these challenging times. Because the health and safety of our patients and community is paramount, it has been necessary to limit our patient care to urgent and emergency care over these last few months.

As we have closely followed recommendations from the North Carolina Dental Board, CDC, and other reputable health organizations, we recognize the importance of regional-specific guidance based on the most comprehensive, accurate, and current scientific literature and data available. While community guidelines may continue to evolve, we must continue to make our treatment decisions based on the best knowledge available. It is our job to help improve the health of our patients by approaching comprehensive dental treatment PROACTIVELY, not just reacting after the compromise has become irreversible in nature.

With this in mind, we have made the decision to safely reopen our doors to ALL PATIENTS beginning Monday, May 11th. This means routine dental care, such as cleanings and simple restorations, will resume. When you come to our office you will notice the following elevated measures and precautions that we believe are necessary to maintain until we emerge from this COVID-19 environment (and likely thereafter):  

  • Sanitation stations in the front desk/waiting area
  • Anti-microbial Hydrogen Peroxide mouth rinses before the start of each appointment
  • Hi-Evacuation suction for hygiene appointments to minimize cavitron-related aerosols
  • Patient entrance doors will remain open to reduce contact 
  • Mandatory pre-screening questionnaire over the phone when appointments are confirmed and upon arrival to the office, in addition to temperature checks of ALL STAFF and PATIENTS
  • Patients will wait in their vehicles until their appointment begins
  • Limited access to patient waiting areas and operatories whenever possible (e.g. restricted to patients, parents of young children, translators, service animals, special needs assistance, etc.)
  • Enhanced social distancing measures throughout the office 

This is not the first crisis that we have endured as a state or as a nation, and we look forward to overcoming this event better, stronger and more resilient than ever before. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your oral health. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns, and let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you.
