Dental implants are the standard of care for replacing missing teeth.
Nothing in dentistry will last longer or work better than dental implants when replacing missing teeth. Dental implants were designed from the root up to the crown. That is dental implants are anchored in the jawbone just like natural teeth. In fact, Dr. Nugent’s patients say they cannot even tell they have a dental implant. Dental implants are a conservative treatment plan. With dental implants no adjacent teeth need to be damaged. Bridges require the dentist to grind away healthy tooth structure. The only teeth replacement option that preserves bone is a dental implant. Chewing forces are distributed down the implant where the bone is stimulated and preserved. With outdated teeth replacement options bone is lost. The lack of bone contributes to wrinkles and a gaunt appearance as the facial structures collapse into atrophied areas.

Dental implants are composed of three parts: implant, abutment and porcelain crown. The titanium implant is inserted into the jawbone. Once the bone fuses to the bone the abutment is screwed into the abutment and will serve as the foundation for the crown. Lastly, a beautiful cosmetic porcelain crown is made to fit over the abutment. The patient will brush and floss the restored dental implant just like a natural tooth.

Dr. Nugent’s patient was missing a front tooth. She wore a bulky plastic partial denture to replace the missing tooth. She researched her options and picked Dr. Nugent for her cosmetic demands. A dental implant was chosen as the best option. Once the implant was fused with the bone Dr. Nugent placed a white zirconia abutment followed by an all porcelain crown. The results were amazing.

TAKING THE COST OF DENTAL IMPLANTS INTO ACCOUNT
For many years, dental implants have been accessible. However, they are still a relatively novel idea for the majority of patients. There are a few key considerations that must be examined while evaluating dental implant prices and comparing bids.
It is vital to consider the lifespan provided by dental implants. Dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option. Although dentures and bridges initially cost less, their affordability may fade over time. These older techniques are frequently more expensive over time because they need to be repaired and replaced every 5 to 10 years. Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime if they are installed and cared for correctly.
HEALTH OF JAW BONE
When a tooth is absent, the jaw bone eventually deteriorates. A dental implant is made out of titanium. The metal fuses with the jaw bone, strengthening it and encouraging bone growth. This lessens future issues by maintaining the jaw bone’s natural strength and quality.
CONDITION OF LIFE
In addition to being a long-term financial investment, dental implants can also improve one’s quality of life. The closest thing to a natural tooth is a dental implant. It also removes the daily inconveniences and potential embarrassment that are frequently brought on by dentures, allowing the patient to consume the same nutritious meals they have always loved.
