Dental Implant Dentistry Pasadena Texas:
Replacing missing teeth is vital for dental health and overall health. Teeth are the very first component of the digestive system. Missing teeth can negatively affect your appearance and self-confidence. Plus, missing teeth can cause problems with your remaining teeth and gum tissue. Pasadena, Texas trusts the implant knowledge and experience of Dr. Nugent.
Teeth are designed to work in unison. When a tooth is lost the remaining teeth are subjected to increased chewing forces. If space from a missing tooth is not treated the adjacent and opposing teeth will collapse into the vacant tooth space.
This causes huge problems such as: irregular bite, jaw joint pain, increased tooth decay and gum disease. Furthermore, the bone and gum tissue that once supported the missing tooth will rapidly disappear. With modern dentistry Dr. Nugent can utilize dental implants to replace missing teeth and avoid the aforementioned problems. Dental implants offer the most advanced, conservative and longest lasting tooth replacement option.
Fully restored dental implants are a combination of three parts: Implant, Abutment and Crown. The implant is a titanium cylinder that is inserted into the jaw bone. The bone fuses around the implant and locks the implant in place. The implant acts like a tooth root. Next, the abutment screws into the implant and serves as a base for the cosmetic porcelain crown. Dental implants allow Dr. Nugent to restore missing teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Dental Implants are better than bridges!
Dental implants do not damage adjacent teeth. Dental implants are securely anchored in the bone. Dental implants will never get decay, nor need a root canal. The longest lasting tooth replacement option is a dental implant. Whereas, half of all bridges fail within thirteen years due to decay or failed root canals. Bridges require damaging adjacent teeth. Bridges do not preserve bone levels. More information about dental implants versus a bridge.
