Pasadena Texas Dental Implants
A healthy smile symbolizes enjoying life to the fullest. If you have missing teeth, then you owe it to yourself to find out about the most advanced way to replace missing teeth: Dental Implants.
Dental Implants are comprised of three parts: implant, abutment and crown.
1.The implant is a titanium cylinder that is inserted into the jaw bone. The implant replicates a natural tooth root.
2. The abutment is screwed into the implant. The abutment is the piece that connects the implant to the crown.
3. The crown is the laboratory made restoration that replaces the visible part of the tooth and is cemented onto the abutment.
Dr. Nugent has used dental implants on his Father, Mother, Father-in-law, and Mother-in-law to replace missing and broken teeth. Dental implants are the most advanced, most successful, and longest lasting way to restore missing teeth. That is why Dr. Nugent used dental implants on his family members.
Dr. Nugent believes in honest, conservative, and compassionate care. Patients travel from Clear Lake, Deer Park, La Porte, Friendswood, League City, Pasadena, Pear Land, Webster and Houston for Dr. Nugent’s honesty, technical expertise, and friendly bedside manner. Dr. Nugent’s dedication to dentistry and technical expertise make him a favorite of referring doctors.
Dental implants are the absolute best and most technologically advanced way to restore missing teeth. Dental implants are not taken out at night. Dental implants are anchored into bone and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants preserve and stimulate bone. Dental implants do not require grinding and cutting of adjacent teeth. You will floss normally in between your implant crown and adjacent teeth.
You should not ignore missing teeth. People lose their teeth for many reasons such as trauma, periodontal disease, decay, and fracture. Missing teeth can lower your self-confidence and make you smile and laugh less. Missing teeth can prevent you from eating the foods you love. Also, missing teeth can cause remaining teeth to shift positions resulting in jaw misalignment. Furthermore, there is rapid bone loss following loss of teeth. Dental implants preserve bone levels.
