Deer Park, Texas get advanced dental options. Replace your missing teeth with dental implants. A dental implant is the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Implants are the ideal solution for patients who have lost teeth due to heavy decay, failed root canal , fractured or extracted teeth.
But what is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is inserted into the jawbone. It will act at the root structure for the missing tooth. Next, the abutment screws into the dental implant and will serve as the foundation for the new cosmetic porcelain crown. Because dental implants are so secure in the haw bone they can also be used to create dental implant bridge and dental implant dentures.
Without a dental implant, the space left by a missing tooth can inflict slow, gradual chaos within the mouth. This is because the teeth are designed to work in unison to provide a strong and stable bit. A single missing tooth will disrupt chewing forces, leading to a multitude of serious dental issues – including bite misalignment, drifting teeth, jaw pain, decay and further tooth loss.
When a tooth is lost the underlying bone structure begins to deteriorate and melt away. Within one year of losing a tooth, the jawbone can lose forty to sixty percent of the bone that once surrounded the missing tooth. This bone loss will continue forever unless a dental implant is placed. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that stimulates and preserves bone levels.
To help Pasadena and Deer Park patients avoid these significant complications, Dr. Michael Nugent provides advanced specialized care in all aspects of implant dentistry. This includes both the surgical placement and then final restoration of the dental implant. Therefore, patients can receive all their dental implant work here at our Pasadena Texas Dental Implant Office.
To achieve his rigorous placement standards, Dr. Nugent relies on many advanced technologies including: CT scans, digital X-rays, bone mapping techniques, custom surgical guides and digital photography to gather complete information. The more information gathered prior to surgery makes the actual surgery easier and more predictable
Of key importance is that Dr. Nugent uses a powerful CT digital 3D scanning and imaging package. This allows him to digitally place an implant in a virtual environment before ever touching the patient. This advanced technology helps Dr. Nugent determine the position, size, type, and number of implants to place in the mouth. Knowing everything beforehand Dr. Nugent avoids having to do excessive cutting and exploring in the mouth during the implant procedure. Therefore, the entire dental implant surgery is much less invasive, shorter and more precise and predictable.
One Dr. Nugent has planned your dental implant he will print a surgical guide on his 3D printer. The implant guide allows Dr. Nugent to more accurately place your dental implant. The surgery is faster and less invasive.
The results for dental implants are astounding. Out of all dental procedures, dental implants offer the highest success rate, not to mention:
Supreme Stability – the dental implant is locked into the jawbone
Long-Term Durability – dental implants are designed to last a lifetime
