Dental Implants do not damage to adjacent teeth.
Once the tooth is ground down that tooth structure can never be replaced. Furthermore, bridges do not have a great long term success rate nor do they preserve bone and tissue levels.
Partial dentures use metal wires to hook onto the remaining natural teeth. This puts additional pressure on the remaining teeth. The partial denture when chewing puts tremendous repetitive strain on the remaining teeth. Over time the natural tooth become loose and are lost. Also, partial dentures are bulky and make cleaning your teeth more difficult. The partial dentures have to be removed at night to let the overworked gum tissue and natural teeth rest.
Dr. Nugent can replace missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants do not damage adjacent teeth, do not come out and are easy to clean. Dental implants preserve bone and gum tissue levels.
Dental Implants Improve Hygiene.
Dental implants replicate natural teeth. Therefore, dental implants are cleaned just like natural teeth. Patients brush and floss their dental implant teeth just like their other natural teeth. Old fashioned bridges need special floss threaders to get under the bridge because you cannot floss a bridge like natural teeth. Partial dentures and dentures have to be soaked in special denture cleaners overnight.
