La Porte Dental Implant Dentist:
Dental Implants are not new. They have been used for over 30 years to replace missing teeth. However, many general dentists have not kept current on what modern dental technology can do. Many dentists are still using old fashioned bridges to replace missing teeth. This is disastrous because old fashioned bridges have many problems. See why La Porte Texas residents make the short drive to our dental office for their dental implant needs.
Old fashioned bridges hurt natural teeth. Healthy teeth have to be ground down to little stumps to support the bridge. The removed tooth structure can never be replaced. The bridge is one solid piece and is difficult to clean. The support teeth can get decay and cause the bridge to fail.
This patient had an old fashioned bridge that was failing. There was decay on the front tooth that caused an infection. Also, note the bone loss. Decay on teeth supporting the bridge is very common as bridges are difficult to clean.
Deer Park and La Porte residents trust the dental implant experience of Dr. Michael Nugent. Dr. Nugent has been voted Best Pasadena Texas Dentist Multiple times. Don’t let a dentist talk you into getting an old fashioned bridge. Demand the best dentistry has to offer.
