Dr. Nugent’s desire and commitment to dental excellence has driven him to become a regional leader in dental implant technology. Your teeth are designed to last a lifetime. However, decay, periodontal (gum) disease, and trauma can lead to tooth loss. When a tooth goes missing, it is important to replace it right away in order to prevent the numerous negative effects of missing teeth. Negative effects of missing teeth:
- The remaining teeth begin to shift. This shifting can create spaces between teeth, food impaction, bite collapse, chewing alteration, and TMJ pain. People with missing teeth are also more prone to gum disease, a serious health condition that can significantly shorten your life span.
- Bone loss from missing tooth and facial contour collapse. As the facial profile collapses a more elderly looking profile is created.
70% of adults are missing at least one tooth. It is reported that if the missing tooth is not replaced, then 20% of adjacent teeth will be lost in the next four to eight years.
Dental implants are the most cosmetically-appealing and advanced way to restore missing teeth. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. For patients who want a beautiful, healthy, younger-looking smile, the choice is dental implants. Dr. Nugent can transform missing teeth and embarrassing smiles into the amazing smiles for his patients.
Dental Implants can change your life!
What is a dental implant? A dental implant is a collection of three parts that mimic a natural tooth. The implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the bone. Bone fuses with the post to create an extremely stable platform. Next, the abutment is a custom-made part that attaches to the implant and will be the base for the crown. Lastly, a beautiful and lifelike ceramic crown is placed on the abutment.
With his extensive implant knowledge and training, Dr. Nugent is a favorite of referring doctors. Dr. Nugent sees patients from all over Texas. To set up a dental implant consultation with Dr. Nugent, please call 713-941-1812.
