“Bridges are outdated. Dental Implants are the most advanced and longest-lasting replacement option for missing teeth. Dental Implants are the treatment of choice and the standard of care for replacing teeth.”
Michael Nugent DDS
Deer Park, Pasadena Texas Dental Implants:
Dental Implants are the most advanced and longest lasting tooth replacement option. In fact, dental implants have become the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants do not decay, and healthy adjacent teeth are not irreversibly damaged. Dr. Nugent has done implants on his mother, father and in-laws because dental implants are the very best way to restore missing teeth.
Here is what some of Dr. Nugent’s patients have to say about Dr. Nugent and dental implants:
Dental implants are made of titanium. This inert metal is placed into the jaw bone and the bone fuses with the metal (a process called osseo-integration).
Then the prosthetic tooth (abutment) is placed on top of the implant. Lastly, a beautiful ceramic crown is inserted.
Dental implants provide a more natural and cosmetically beautiful solution to missing teeth. Come discover how dental implants can restore your smile and self confidence.
Are dental implants safe?
Absolutely!!!! Dental implants have been used since 1970 and are FDA cleared.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants preserve bone and facial appearance. Dental implants are the longest lasting, most advanced way to restore missing teeth. Dental implants do not require grinding down of neighbor teeth. Dental implants are permanent (you do not take them in or out).
Will the dental implants look natural?
Yes, your dental implants will look and feel natural. The final restoration will be a ceramic crown that is matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Why replace missing teeth?
All the teeth in your mouth rely on each other for proper function and support. When a missing tooth is not replaced it causes numerous problems. Teeth will shift and migrate and cause problems with chewing and pain in the jaw joint. Teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are more prone to gum disease and decay. Dental implants prevent shifting of teeth. Furthermore, the social embarrassment of missing teeth can be very traumatic.
Why choose a dental implant over a bridge?
A dental implant will create a beautiful natural looking tooth without cutting or grinding of surrounding teeth. Patients can floss in between the dental implants and their teeth. Bridges make it extremely difficult to floss and as a result teeth are extremely susceptible to decay and bridge failure. Dental implants are better than bridges.
If you are missing teeth due to disease or trauma then dental implants offer the most advanced way to replace missing teeth.
