Deer Park, Texas Dental Implants:
Dental implants are the absolute best way to replace missing teeth. Deer Park, Texas residents trust the knowledge and experience of Dr. Michael Nugent. The decision to use dental implants can be based of their superior cosmetic properties or their many dental benefits. Dental implants are very safe and offer patients the longest lasting tooth replacement option. Dental implants are composed of three parts: dental implant, custom abutement and crown.
The science and technology behind dental implants is very sophisticated and is possible due to process called Osseointegration: the process in which titanium will fuse directly with the bone. Thus, dental implants are securely anchored in the jawbone and replicate natural teeth roots. Titanium is a bio-compatible material. The jawbone does not reject the metal and does not treat it like a foreign object. Fully restored, dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
Implant placement is a very minor outpatient surgery. Patients go to work or school the very next day. The disruption to the patient’s life is very minimal.
Do Dental Implants Hurt?
With old fashioned bridges healthy teeth have to be aggressively cut on to make room to support a bridge. Dental implants do not damage the nearby teeth. Dental implants cannot decay and will never need a root canal.
