Friendswood Texas residents want the best way to replace their missing teeth. They seek out dental implant therapy from Dr. Michael Nugent. Dental implants are the best, most advanced and cosmetic way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants look, function and feel like natural teeth. That is because dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that restores the entire tooth.
A fully restored dental implant is comprised of three parts.
- Implant – the titanium cylinder that is placed into the jawbone and serves as a replacement tooth root
- Abutment – this screws into the implant and will serve as a foundation for the new porcelain crown
- Crown – the porcelain restoration that looks and feels like a natural tooth
Dental implants replace the entire tooth. They are the only tooth replacement option that will stimulate and preserve bone levels. Dental implants will never get decay and will never need a root canal. Dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option in dentistry.
Dental Implant Dentures:
For patients that are missing all their teeth a great option is dental implant dentures. Dr. Nugent can make implant dentures that “snap” onto the implants and provide a secure and stable connection. No more denture adhesives or loose dentures.
You don’t have to suffer with old fashioned dentures. See how Dr. Nugent can convert your old fashioned dentures to dental implant dentures.
Another option for Friendswood residents is the All on Four Dental Implant therapy. This gives patients permanent non-removable teeth all in one day. It is great for patients that want the ultimate in oral rehabilitation and absolutely DO NOT want to take their teeth out at night.
