Maintain your youth with the Dental Implants!
Dental Implant patients are of all ages and implants may be the right choice for anyone missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay. In today’s world of dentistry, implants are the standard of care for missing teeth. Also, they are especially practical for patients who can avoid wearing removable dentures. Dr. Nugent can determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and medical history. Dr. Nugent will use a 3D x-ray to plan and design your new dental implant. Then he will 3D print a surgical guide so that he can place the implant in the exact location that he planned on the computer.
Dental implants do not damage adjacent teeth like an old fashioned bridge. Plus, they are the only missing tooth treatment option that simulates and preserves the jawbone.
As a patient, you face a difficult decision to undergo surgery to insert dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. But we have the experience and expertise to calm those fears. Call 713-941-8261 today to see if you are a candidate for dental implants.
When you lose a tooth to trauma, infection, or periodontal disease, you are losing more than the part of the tooth that is visible when you smile. You are also losing the root of the tooth, the important bony structure that connects and maintains your jawbone.
The tooth root might seem insignificant at first, but it’s incredibly important when it comes to the health of your smile.
Dental implants serve as artificial tooth roots that integrate into your jaw bone. When a dental implant is restored with a dental crown, which replaces the visible portion of a single missing tooth, it’s as close as you can come to a brand new tooth.
