Why should I Choose Dental Implants?

The Facts about Dental Implants.

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for tooth loss. Dental implants are the most advanced technology available for replacing missing teeth.  Although dental implants were first discovered in 1952, science and technology have made dental implants very predictable and successful. Multiple long term studies have shown the success of dental implants to be from 96% to 98%.  Dental implants owe their tremendous benefit and success to the fact that they are designed just like natural teeth. The titanium post is inserted into the jawbone where it acts like a natural tooth root. Then the abutment and porcelain crown complete the dental implant. This results in a replacement tooth that acts and looks just like a natural tooth. Dental implants do not damage adjacent teeth like bridges and partial dentures. Furthermore, dental implants fuse to the jawbone and stimulate bone activity. Whereas with bridges and partial dentures, there is tremendous bone loss. Age is not a limiting factor with dental implants.

What is a Dental Implant?

Establishing long term success for your dental implants.

The success of your dental implant comes down to two important factors- your dental team and you. Dr. Nugent is a local leader in the dental implant field. He uses extremely talented oral surgeons to place the implant because oral surgeons are the absolute best at surgical procedures inside the mouth. Be very weary of “one stop shops” for dental implants. Dr. Nugent realizes that he can only be an expert in so many areas. That is why Dr. Nugent utilizes a team approach to dental implants. Dr. Nugent’s oral surgeons handle the surgical aspects and Dr. Nugent completes the implants with teeth restorations. Working as a team Dr. Nugent can give patients the very best dental treatment.

Patients were previously unable to receive dental implants if they smoked, had diabetes, or had inadequate bone density. However, more advanced protocols have been devised that allow patients who were previously told they could not receive dental implants to receive them.

Even though your new dental implants cannot get cavities, it is still important to maintain them as you would a natural tooth. Using a toothbrush and dental floss will eliminate microorganisms around the dental implant and gum tissue. The purpose of brushing and flossing natural teeth is to eliminate microorganisms from natural teeth and gum tissue.

Teeth loss has a significant impact on oral health and function, impairing the ability to smile, communicate, and eat. There are a variety of alternatives for replacing missing teeth, such as bridges, dentures, and implants. Bridges are secured to the teeth on either side of the space with dental crowns and work to restore the full function of the bite and smile. Dentures are a removable option for replacing multiple teeth and are typically prescribed for this purpose. Implants are designed to provide a permanent solution that is identical in appearance, sensation, and function to the patient’s natural teeth.
