Dental cavities have been on the decline in the last twenty years. However, missing teeth continue to be a major problem for Americans. Dental implants have been a standard of care for over thirty years. In dental school Dr. Nugent received advanced training in all aspects of implant dentistry. Dr. Nugent continues to study, and keeps current with the advancements of implant dentistry. Many dentists do not feel comfortable working with dental implants and only offer outdated dental solutions when replacing missing teeth. You deserve to see what modern hi-tech dentistry can do for you because dental implants are the most advanced and cosmetic way to replace missing teeth.
Dr. Nugent is a leader in implant dentistry and has patients travel from all over Texas to see him. Dr. Nugent’s dental office is at 3421 Burke Rd, Pasadena, Texas where he focuses his practice on Cosmetic, General, Implant, and Sedation Dentistry. Patients and referring doctors trust the knowledge and dental implant expertise of Dr. Nugent.
How do dental implants work?
A root-formed titanium rod is placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal. The rod fuses with the bone and becomes securely locked into place.
Then an abutment (piece that connects the implant to the crown) is screwed into the rod. Lastly, a gorgeous ceramic crown is cemented into place.
Dr. Nugent has many patients that forget which tooth is their dental implant. Implants function just like natural teeth. Dental implants are permanent (you do not take them out) and do not require grinding and cutting nearby teeth. Implants are the gold standard when replacing missing teeth.
