Pasadena, Texas Dental Implant Dentist:
A dental implant is a titanium “root” replacement that is placed into the jawbone. The bone will fuse with the titanium implant. Once integrated with your bone, the dental implant can be used to support a crown, bridge, denture or non-removable denture.
Dental implants can be used to eliminate partial plates and dentures. Implants have been used successfully for over 40 years. Dental implants have the highest successes rate of any tooth replacement option. Dental implants are designed to mimic natural teeth and thus look, feel, and function like natural teeth. In our Pasadena dental implant office, dental implants are the standard of care for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Nugent has used dental implants to replace teeth on his parents, in-laws , team members and friends.
Dental implant treatment represents a slightly greater investment than conventional treatment. However, when one looks at the benefits and successes of implant therapy it is obvious dental implants are the best treatment option.
What is a Dental Implant?
Options to replace a single tooth.
Dental tooth implants are designed to mimic natural teeth. Implants provide a highly stable support system for the replacement teeth or dentures. Other benefits include:
- Longevity and reliability. Dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option. Dental implants can never get decay and will never need a root canal.
- Improved biting pressure. Dental implants give you back your ability to eat. Healthy teeth are able to withstand over 500 pounds of biting pressure per square inch. If you’ve worn dentures for a long time, you know that you cannot chew certain foods. Dental tooth implants can restore the amount of pressure that can be withstood to almost the exact same level of healthy natural teeth.
- Comfort and fit. Dental implants look, function and feel just like natural teeth. Furthermore, dental implants can anchor dental implant dentures. The denture snap onto the dental implant and can’t slip and slide like unsecured dentures can. Old fashioned dentures are secure enough and they often cause sores in the mouth. Furthermore, loose dentures can create an annoying clicking sound. Dental tooth implants eliminate these problems.
- Increased self-confidence. Dental tooth implants function exactly like natural teeth. Patients regain self-confidence once they realize they can again chew, talk, laugh and smile with confidence.
