Dental implants represent the highest level of dental care. When replacing teeth implants are the “Gold Standard”. When Dr. Nugent’s parents lost teeth, he replaced them with dental implants. Only the best for Dr. Nugent’s parents. Patients have varying levels of missing teeth. How can dental implants help people with different needs?
Single Tooth Implant
Dr. Nugent’s Pasadena dental team may recommend a single dental implant if a tooth has been extracted or is missing. A titanium implant is inserted into the jawbone to replicate a natural tooth root. Time is allowed for the bone to fuse with the implant. Once the bone is fused the implant is secure. Next the abutment is screwed into the base of the tooth implant. Then the cosmetic crown is placed on top of the abutment.
Multiple Teeth Implants
When a patient is missing multiple teeth there are several different options to replacing these teeth with dental implants. Multiple dental implants can be placed. Once great option to replacing multiple missing teeth is to utilize a dental implant bridge. A dental implant bridge is advantageous as it allows Dr. Nugent to replace multiple missing teeth with as few as two dental implants.
An out-dated replacement options for multiple teeth is a Partial Denture. This is a denture that comes in and out of your mouth. It rubs the gum tissue and aggravates your tongue. The metal clasps are not cosmetic. Furthermore, the metal clasps cause strain on the teeth causing the teeth to loosen in the jawbone. The partial denture does nothing to preserve the gum tissue and jawbone.
