Pasadena, Texas All on Four Dental Implants
Smiles for a Lifetime. You can replace missing teeth with dental implants. An incredible procedure has been developed that allows the placement of 4 dental implants and new teeth in as little as one appointment. It’s even possible to restore an entire mouthful of teeth (top and bottom) with implants and non-removable set of new teeth in as little as an hour. With the All-on-Four-Implant procedure there is no bone grafting and no sinus lift necessary. Healing time is greatly accelerated.
All on 4 Dental Implants will change your life.
Patients who benefit most from this ground-breaking and advanced system are 1.) patients that are toothless with dentures 2.) patients with teeth so bad that none of the teeth can be saved. In years past the patients had no option but to pull all their teeth and then suffer with their options:
Poor Restorative Choices of the Past:
1. Removable partial dentures. These dentures replace missing teeth by using metal hooks to grab onto remaining teeth. The problem is that they are not cosmetic and they damage the remaining natural teeth. Furthermore, these dentures rest on the gum tissue and produce chewing forces of only 10-20 percent of what is normal.
2. Multiple Implants. This involves getting eight dental implants on the top and eight implants on the bottom. Then using dental bridges to replace the teeth. Lots of implants, multiple surgeries, long wait, bone grafts and increased cost made this treatment option a poor choice.
3. Denture. The old fashioned denture has not changed in thousands of years. Something that looks like teeth is jammed into the mouth. The denture only rides on the gum tissue and is not secure. Eating is difficult because the denture moves. The dentures rub on gum tissue causing ulcers and destroy the bone and gum tissue.
The All on Four implant procedure was developed and mastered in Europe. The procedure has been refined with the utilization of CT scanners. These 3-D scans allow Dr. Nugent to digitally place the implants. Thus, we know exactly where the implants are going to be place before the surgery. The 3-D scan allows us to see vital anatomical structures and nerves and avoid these areas. Surgical guides (stents) are computer made to allow exact placement of the implants.
Patients get a full new smile in one day. Patients can go home and eat a light meal the day of their surgery. Don’t suffer any longer. Call our office at 713-941-8261. Dr. Nugent is located at 3421 Burke Rd, Ste A, Pasadena Texas 77504.
