La Porte, Texas residents want the best and most advanced dentistry possible. For Dental implants, La Porte knows that Dr. Nugent is the leader in implant dentistry.
Dental implants are not new. They have been used for over 30 years. Dental implants are designed to mimic natural teeth. They are the only tooth replacement option that is anchored into the jaw bone just like natural teeth. Thus, implants are the only tooth replacement option that stimulate and preserve bone levels. Dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option available. They will never get decay or need a root canal. The implant does not damage adjacent teeth like a bridge. Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime.
Dental bridges are old and outdated technology. Bridges require aggressive cutting of adjacent healthy teeth. Often the aggressive cutting of once healthy teeth will lead to the tooth nerve dying. Then the patient will need a root canal. Bridges are difficult to clean and frequently get decay underneath the bridge causing major dental and financial problems. Around half of all bridges fail within 10 to 15 years.
Patient has an old fashioned bridge. It was very difficult to keep clean.
The YELLOW shows the bone loss that has happened as a result of the bridge. Remember, bridges do nothing to preserve bone levels. The GREEN shows decay on the bridge. The MAGENTA is the infection from the tooth dying.
Dr. Nugent was able to restore the patient by using two dental implants.
