Dr. Nugent why are dental implants becoming more and more popular?
There a multitude of reasons why implants have increased in popularity. These include:
- Americans are living longer
- Increased chance of tooth loss related to age
- Failure of bridges due to decay, root canal failures, and complexity of keeping bridges clean
- Terrible fit and function of dentures
- Emotional and psychological aspects of losing teeth
- The predictable and extremely successful long term prognosis of dental implants
- The tremendous advantages of implant supported dentures
Implants have been in use for over thirty years. However, a lot of dentists have not kept up with modern dentistry advancements. I am lucky that during my dental training I received dental implant training from oral surgeons (specialists in surgery), periodontists (specialists in gum and bone tissue) and prosthodontists (specialists in restoring complex cases). A large part of my dental practice is devoted to dental implants. I pride myself in keeping current with the latest dental advancements. I do this by taking hands on lectures, reading textbooks and printed journals, and reading online journals. The amount of information and research that is available is amazing. To stay current I not only have to read what is happening in the United States, but also have to read research that comes out of Europe, Asia and South America. I would have never thought that I would get so excited about learning after I graduated dental school. Missing teeth can cause embarrassment, insecurity, and lowered self-confidence. Experience a happy and healthy smile with dental implants. If you are looking for a local leader in dental implants, then call my office at 713-941-8261 and schedule a dental implant consultation.
