Dr. Nugent is one a few select dentists in the nation that have Cone Beam Computer Topography (CBCT). Dr. Nugent acquired this technology simply because if Dr. Nugent was the patient, he would want his doctor to have a 3-D image prior to implant placement.
Mapping the Inferior Alveolar Nerve
Digitally placing the Dental Implant
Once vital anatomy is mapped out in 3D, Dr. Nugent can do a virtual implant surgery. He will place the dental implant and can study the size, angulation and location of the implant.
Once Dr. Nugent is satisfied with the position he will create a surgical guide. This guide allows Dr. Nugent to place the dental implant in the exact location that he planned for on the computer screen. Using a surgical guide allows for Dr. Nugent to perform your surgery faster, safer, more accurately and more predictable.
Dr. Nugent is a leader in dental implant therapy.
His office is located at 3421 Burke Rd #1, Pasadena, Texas 77504.
