Will Dental Implants Work for me?
Pasadena, Texas Implant Dentist Dr. Nugent ensures patients receive dental care that is safe, effective, and comfortable by utilizing the most advanced dental technologies. When it comes to addressing adult tooth loss for our Pasadena and Deer Park patients, dental implants are the absolute best treatment option. Dental implant are the most advanced technological way to replace missing teeth and offers patients a secure, durable, and comfortable solution for missing teeth. Dental implants have been in use for over thirty years. However, implant dentistry continues to evolve and improve. Patients who were not candidates for dental implants in the past are probably able to receive dental implant now.
Dental implants are titanium cylinders that are place into the jawbone. The implants fuse with the jaw bone and serve as anchors for dental restorations. Dental implants can secure dental crowns, dental bridges, or implant dentures. Dental Implants provide a solution for patients who have experienced any degree of adult tooth loss. Ideally, patients who will undergo dental implant treatment should be:
- In overall good general health
- Can tolerate a tooth extraction surgery
- Have healthy gums
- Be free of oral health problems
- Have substantial jaw bone density
- Be committed to the proper care and maintenance of the dental implants
- Non-smokers or to stop smoking during implant treatment
I’ve been told I don’t have enough bone for dental implants.
Dental implants need a certain amount of bone in order to attach to the jawbone. However, a lack of jaw bone or a narrow jaw bone is no longer a barrier for dental implants. Patients can receive a bone graft to augment the bone levels.
Diabetes and Dental Implants?
Patients who have diabetes were once considered poor candidates for dental implants. However, with increased dental implant protocols even the diabetic patient can receive dental implants.
Thanks to the scientific advances in dental implant dentistry, there are very few patients that can’t receive dental implants. Don’t suffer with adult tooth loss.
