Deer Park Texas Dental Implants
Is your Dentist comfortable with Dental Implants?
Some older Dentists are afraid of dental implants as they prefer what they have been doing in the past. Furthermore, some older dentist have not kept up with what modern dentistry can offer.
A larger part of Dr. Nugent’s practice is devoted to dental implants. Dr. Nugent is a leader in the Pasadena area on the subject of dental implants. Patients travel from all over Texas to seek his expertise and knowledge on dental implants.
Dental implants are not new and have been used for the past thirty years. Dentists need to be extremely knowledgeable and proficient on dental implants because of the tremendous value dental implants offer. Dental implants offer patients a foundation for new replacement teeth where natural teeth are missing. With dental implants, Dr. Nugent can offer patients the opportunity to regain normal function and appearance of the tooth, without being forced to wear a bridge or a denture.
This patient was born without an adult lateral tooth. The missing tooth was easily and predictably restored using a dental implant. The patient was so excited about the look and feel.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
- Dental implants fuse with existing bone and replicate a tooth root.
- Dental implant will support your new teeth firmly and safely without the need to cut on adjacent teeth.
- Dental implants are permanent and are not taken out.
- The ceramic crowns supported by implants are extremely cosmetically pleasing.
- Dental implants eliminate slippage, messy denture adhesives and pain during talking or eating dentures.
- The dental implant preserves bone levels.
- No other procedure can match the long term success of dental implants in replacing teeth.
Dental implants are an investment in one’s personality, way of life, and oral health. When you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, you give yourself the only permanent option for tooth replacement.
Dental implants are the only option for permanent tooth replacement. Other options, such as dentures and bridges, are not as durable, are susceptible to decay, and require more maintenance than dental implants.
Because dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone, the risk of bone loss in the affected area is diminished. Dental implants actually stimulate the bone to remain healthy.
Eat the foods you love. No dietary restrictions with dental implants.
Dental bridges and prostheses require additional oral hygiene measures for their daily maintenance. This is because they can become contaminated with bacteria and food residue. With dental implants, you can care for your restored tooth the same way you care for your natural teeth, which simplifies your daily preventive care routine.
Once completed, dental implants seamlessly integrate into your mouth. They restore the appearance, sensation, and function of missing teeth. There is no discernible hardware present. Instead, when you laugh or smile, people will notice your gorgeous, revitalized smile.
Dental Implant Procedure:
A natural tooth has two main sections: the root and the crown. A dental implant replicates the tooth root. The dental implant acts as an anchor to support new replacement teeth.
The first step of the procedure is surgical placement of the implant. The dental implant will be left alone for a period of 3-6 months. Bone will grow around the Implant in a process called Osseointegration. Once the dental implant is secured in the bone a beautiful ceramic crown is placed on the implant.
Replacing missing teeth are very important to you oral health and self confidence. If you are thinking about dental implants then call 713-941-8261 and schedule a dental implant consultation with Dr. Nugent. Deer Park Texas residents trust the expertise and knowledge of Dr. Nugent.
