Dental Implants: A Permanent Solution to Missing Teeth
Dental implants are the most advanced way to permanently replace missing teeth. The implant is a replacement for a tooth’s root. Then the abutment connects the implant to the beautiful porcelain crown. Dental implants are an excellent alternative to old fashioned dentistry options like bridges or dentures.
A dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is placed into the jaw bone. Titanium is biocompatible (bone loves titanium) and works great long term.
The fully restored dental implant work, feel and functions just like natural teeth. Patients will brush and floss their new implant tooth just like their natural teeth. Patients eat and speak better and have a renewed sense of self-confidence.
Getting Dental Implants
The process of getting dental implants is indeed a lengthy time investment. However, implants offer unmatched success and benefits over old fashioned dental options.
The very first step is to meet with Dr. Nugent. He will explain the implant process and determine if you are a good candidate for implants. The good news, most everyone who is in good to average health can get implants. Even if you have been told in the past you were not a candidate, you most likely are now due to new methods and techniques.
There are three parts to a fully restored dental implant.
Abutment – Inserts into the implant and will serve as the foundation for the crown
Crown – The beautiful porcelain restoration that looks and feels like a natural tooth
Why Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are the most advanced and longest lasting method of replacing teeth. Old fashioned techniques like bridges and partial dentures damage the mouth. For bridges healthy teeth must be aggressively cut down to support the bridge. Often the bridge support teeth need root canals because of the drastic cutting. Bridges have a high failure rate due to decay and unsuccessful root canals.
Partial dentures put excessive strain and torque on the remaining teeth. Also, bridges and partial dentures do nothing to preserve gum tissue and bone levels.
Dental implants can never get decay or need a root canal. Plus, dental implants are the ONLY tooth replacement option that stimulates and preserves gum tissue and bone levels.
You deserve the best modern dentistry has to offer.
