Pasadena Texas: Denture Options
Dentures that look and feel just like natural teeth with dental implant dentures! Dentures are substitutes for missing teeth. They are a plastic dental prosthesis that goes in and out of your mouth.

The cheeks, tongue, eating, talking, laughing, sneezing and coughing cause the denture to move. Get the best, upgrade to dental implant dentures and change your life.
What are Dental Implant Dentures?
Unlike a regular denture, which rests on your gums, dental implant dentures are anchored into your mouth by dental implants. With implant dentures the special denture snaps into place on the implants. There is a stable and secure connection. No more slipping or coming loose in the mouth. Implant dentures eliminate the need for denture paste or adhesives. The implant denture is removed at night for cleaning.
Basics of a Dental Implant
Dental implants are long-term replacements that Dr. Nugent will surgically place into your jawbone. The dental implants are made out of medical grade titanium. Bone loves titanium and will literally “fuses” to the jawbone through a process called “osseointegration.” Your stable implant denture will not slip or make embarrassing clicking sounds making it apparent that you have “false teeth.” Dental implants are made out of titanium. Therefore, you do not have to worry about the decay or root canals. Furthermore, the dental implants will stabilize and preserve bone levels.
Caring for your Dental Implant Denture
It is vital to remove your denture at night and to clean it thoroughly. Also, attention should be given to the implant attachments in your mouth as plaque and tartar can form on the attachments.
Dental Implant Dentures vs. Old Fashioned Dentures
Old fashioned dentures are recognized to be painful and inconvenient. Most patients criticize the discomfort, embarrassment, and express unhappiness with their dentures. Dentures do not act as natural teeth. The old fashioned denture is not anchored in place and is free to move and float on the gum tissue. Old fashioned dentures accelerate bone loss after tooth loss. They do not stimulate the bone like natural teeth do. Overtime, the gum tissue patients relied on to keep their dentures in place will disappear. Thus, the fit of the dentures will be incorrect and the dentures will be extremely unstable.
Dental Implant Denture
Dental implant dentures provide the patients with a life free from pain, discomfort, and embarrassment. Implant dentures allow patients to throw away their denture adhesives. No messy adhesives needed with implant dentures. The dental implants will preserve bone and gum tissue. Dr. Nugent’s patients are amazed at their ability to chew, speak, and smile with comfort again. Dental implants have truly transformed dentistry for the denture wearer.
If you need a long-term solution for many missing teeth, Dr. Nugent offer implant-supported dentures. Implant-retained dentures resemble standard dentures in appearance, but they are supported by dental implants. Denture users frequently report that their dentures have become loose and “float” around their mouth, affecting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are great option for patients that are missing all of their teeth. Furthermore, Dr. Nugent can often retrofit an old denture with into an implant denture.
The implantation of the implants is the initial step in fixing your denture with dental implants. Dental implants, which resemble screws in appearance, are surgically implanted into the jawbone to securely hold your denture. While the exact number of implants necessary can vary depending on your personal demands, most cases necessitate four to six dental implants per denture. After the implants have been inserted and adequate healing time has passed, your denture is attached on top. Implants provide remarkable stability to your denture. In fact, many patients say their implant-retained dentures feel and operate much like real teeth.
