You may have heard about dental implants and their many advantages when it comes to replacing one or more lost teeth. It is hard not to see advertisement in the newspaper, radio and online. Did you know Dr. Nugent is one of the area’s leading dental implant dentists? He can do both the surgical and restorative aspect of your dental implant treatment. He uses advanced 3D x-rays, implant planning software and a 3D printer to deliver precise results.
An implant’s greatest benefits is its ability to replace the missing tooth root. When the implant fuses to the jawbone Dr. Nugent can create permanent non-removable teeth or use the implants to secure implant dentures.
Where the Magic Happens: Osseointegration
Osseointegration – a direct structural and functional connection between ordered, living bone and the surface of a load-carrying implant.
Osseointegration is bone grown right up to the implant surface without interposed soft tissue layer.
Dental implants are the only way to prevent the bone loss from missing teeth. The jawbone only serves to hold teeth in place. When teeth are lost the bone is lost. However, when and implant is placed the forces of chewing are transmitted down the implant into the bone. This stimulates the bone to stay robust and healthy.
Dental implants can be used to replace single teeth, multiple teeth or all the teeth with the All on Four protocol. They are also extremely helpful in securing dental implant dentures.
