Dr. Nugent is a regional leader in the surgical placement and cosmetic aspect of dental implants. This exciting tooth replacement technology is far superior to traditional dentures and bridges. Dental implants look, function and feel like nature intended. Dental implants consist of a titanium cylinder and a single crown or a multiple-tooth prosthetic (bridge or denture). Because implants are anchored in the jawbone, they never slip out of place, and they don’t require special care like dentures do. Patients across Texas feel younger, healthier, and more attractive because of modern dental implants. If you’re interested in learning more about dental implants call Dr. Nugent. He is a leader in dental implant care.
Implants are titanium cylinders that are inserted into the jawbone where a tooth used to be. Over time the bone grows up to and fuses with the titanium. Now the implants are firmly locked into the jawbone. Dr. Nugent will then finish the dental implant by creating a single tooth, dental implant bridge or dental implant denture on top of the implant. Implants are made to mimic the look, function and feel of natural teeth.
Better Technology, better results!
Dental implant placement and restoration used to require multiple visits. However, Dr. Nugent has an advanced Cone Beam Computer Topography X-ray unit. (a small CT machine). With this technology Dr. Nugent can know the exact dimensions of the implant to be used and evaluate for any anatomical pit falls. A dental cone beam 3-D scan presents important information when it comes to the assessment and planning of surgical implants. Furthermore, a 3-D scan is commonly accepted as the preferred method for pre-surgical assessment of dental implant sites and is becoming the standard of care. Dr. Nugent’s ability to plan this way, greatly reduces the risk of unforeseen complications and expenses.

Once the dental implant is placed the body takes over. Over the next couple of months your jawbone will grow up to and fuse with the dental implant. This processes is called Osseointegration. This locks the implant into the jawbone and provides a secure anchor point for Dr. Nugent to build a new tooth.
After the healing process is complete, Dr. Nugent will restore the dental implant giving you a new tooth! Your new dental implant tooth will look, function and feel just like your natural teeth giving you the ability to chew and smile again.
