What is Osseointegration?
Osseointegration is the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of a dental implant.
Literally, the bone grows up to and fuses to the titanium locking the implant in place. Then Dr. Nugent can restore the implant to give you a new tooth or use the implant to make dental implant dentures.
Osseointegreation was discovered in Europe in the 1950s.
Pasadena Texas Dental Implants:
Dr. Nugent carefully places the dental implant into the bone. The genetic code that commonly makes bone reject a foreign material is not activated. Instead, the body allows bone cells to attach to the titanium surface and the result is a firm and permanent anchorage for a prosthetic reconstruction.
