Dr. Nugent: Family Dentist and Dental Implants
Dental Implants are the most advanced way to replace missing teeth. Dr. Nugent has been using dental implants to help patients replace missing teeth for over 13 years. Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. That is because dental implants mimic natural teeth. The implants are anchored in the jawbone just like natural teeth. The restored implant comes out of the gum tissue just like natural teeth. And finally, the crown of the implant looks, feels and functions just like a natural tooth.
Dr. Nugent always recommends the best treatment to his patients. He often tells patients “This is what I did for my family members.” In fact, Dr. Nugent has completed dental implants on his Father, Father-in-law, and Mother-in-law. Then Dr. Nugent’s Mother broke a tooth.
Dr. Nugent’s Mother need a dental implant. There are outdated and old fashioned ways to replace missing teeth like a dental bridge. However, there are so many negative aspects associated with bridges that Dr. Nugent very rarely does an old fashioned bridge.
If your dentist is recommending an old fashioned bridge then you need to read: Bridge or Dental Implant?
Dr. Nugent wanted the best for his Mom so he chose to do a dental implant.

The Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a number of advantages for patients who have lost teeth:
Designed for Lifetime Durability
Dental implants have a long-term success rate of over 95%, which is significantly higher than the success rates of bridges, prostheses, and other tooth replacement options. By brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist routinely, you can typically maintain the health of your implants for the remainder of your life.
Maintains Skeletal and Facial Structures
The tooth root must provide regular stimulation to the mandible. When you loose a tooth’s root, the jawbone can begin to resorb, potentially resulting in unattractive facial changes. Dental implants stimulate the jaw, fostering healthy bone growth and preventing undesirable changes to the face.
A Brighter Smile
When using a bridge to replace a tooth it is necessary to shave down healthy teeth to make room for the dental bridge. Dental implants do not necessitate the cutting down of adjacent teeth.
Once implants are in place, Dr. Nugent will custom-tailor your replacement teeth so that they appear identical to your natural teeth. Dental implants enable you to preserve your natural, self-assured smile. Plus, implants allow you to chew with the same force as natural teeth.
