League City Texas: What are Dental Tooth Implants?

 Pasadena Texas Dental ImplantsDental Implants are artificial tooth replacements.

The fully restored dental implant replicates the form and function of a natural tooth. Therefore, dental implants give patients missing teeth the most cosmetic tooth replacement option. Dental implants are the longest lasting and most robust tooth replacement option. There are several treatment options for replacing teeth. These include bridges and dentures. However, dental implants greatly outperform these out dated treatment options. Dental implants are the most advanced, conservative and longest lasting treatment option when replacing missing teeth. Furthermore, dental implants can be used in implant dentures and permanent dentures solutions like the All-on-Four Implant Treatment.

Reasons for missing teeth include: Tooth Decay Root Canal Failure Trauma Periodontal Disease (gum disease) Congenitally Missing Teeth Fractured Teeth

TMD TMJ Jaw Joint PainLeague City, Texas residents who suffer from tooth loss are self-conscious about their missing teeth. They tend to cover their mouth when they laugh and not smile. Tooth loss will cause teeth to shift. This shifting of teeth creates chewing problems and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ/Jaw pain) problems.



The Advantages of Dental Implant:

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for tooth loss that is highly successful. In fact, no other tooth replacement option will last as long as a dental implant. Dental implants are the most advanced tooth replacement option available. Dental implants can be used to support a crown when replacing a single tooth, or a dental bridge when replacing several teeth.  Also, Dr. Nugent can use dental implants to create a dental implant denture that is completely stable. Dental implants are conservative and the smarter financial decision when replacing missing teeth. Old fashioned dental bridges require grinding healthy teeth down to support the bridge. The bridge fuses the teeth together and makes it difficult to clean. Furthermore, bridges usually fail because one of the anchor teeth gets decay. This creates a larger dental and financial problem then the original missing tooth. The bridge does nothing to support the gum tissue and bone levels. Bridges are expensive and their benefits do not last long term. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant protects the adjacent teeth and stimulates the gum tissue and bone levels. Patients clean and floss their new dental implant tooth just like they would a regular tooth. With the extremely high success rate of dental implants the best financial decision is to replace missing teeth with dental implants.
