Dental Implant Deer Park Texas:
Dr. Nugent what is Implant Dentistry?
Teeth can be lost due to disease, injury, or gum tissue. In the past, no ideal tooth solution was available. The solutions that were available all had some negative aspects. However, now with dental implants Dr. Nugent can replace missing teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth and without any negative aspects.
Dental implants are titanium cylinders that are inserted in the jawbone. There the bone fuses with the titanium and lock the implants into place. The implant serves as a tooth root and will accept the abutment and porcelain crown. The restored dental implant mimics a natural tooth in appearance and function. The dental implant transmits chewing forces to the bone and maintains bone health.
Missing teeth can cause embarrassment and low self esteem. Furthermore, missing teeth can bring about unwanted changes to a person’s facial appearance and outline. When teeth are missing the bone and gum tissue disappears and causes the cheeks to sink into the missing spaces. This can cause premature and unwanted wrinkles. Now with modern implant dentistry Dr. Nugent can replace missing teeth and prevent the negative aspects of missing teeth. No longer will patients have to accept the embarrassment and shame of missing teeth.
Dental implants are permanent and are designed to last a lifetime. Dental implants are permanently fixed in the patient’s mouth. Patients brush, floss and clean their implants just like natural teeth.
Dr. Nugent why are dental implants better then bridges?
Dental bridges require that the healthy adjacent teeth get aggressively cut on to provide space for the bridge. The bridge is one large connected piece and is difficult to clean. Most bridges have a lifespan of fifteen years. The two most common reasons bridges fail are because of decay on a support tooth or a failed root canals. Often the support teeth will need root canals because of the aggressive cutting on the teeth. When a bridge fails it is catastrophic because now the patient has multiple teeth that will need extensive work. Often the support teeth are no longer viable and need to be extracted. Dental implants are better than a bridge in every way!
Dental implants mimic natural teeth and are anchored into the jawbone. They do not move and do not come out. Dental implants preserve and stimulate bone. Dental implants replicate natural teeth so patients have the same chewing forces and experiences with dental implants as they do natural teeth. Dental implants improve the quality of your life.
