Pasadena, Deer Park Texas Dental Implant Options:
Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants:
When people talk about dental implants, they are usually referring to the entire completed implant system. This includes the implant itself, the abutment and with the replacement teeth that are visible in your mouth. The completed implant restorations (crowns, bridges or dentures) are cosmetic and look just like your natural teeth. Deer Park and Pasadena, Texas seek out Dr. Nugent for his implant expertise.
Dr. Nugent offers a number of implant options, depending on your treatment needs and how many teeth you need to replace. These include implant options for one tooth, multiple teeth, or all the teeth in an arch.
Single Teeth replaced with Dental Implants:
The most common dental implant treatment is the replacement of a single tooth. Dr. Nugent has the advanced training and skills to both place and restore your dental implant. Dr. Nugent is one of the few general dentists in the area that has a 3-D Conebeam CT machine to “digitally” place your dental implants PRIOR to your surgery. Dr. Nugent will know exactly where you implants need to go before your surgery. Better diagnostic information leads to better dental implant placement.
Multiple Missing Teeth replaced with Dental Implant Bridge:
Dr. Nugent can replace several teeth in a row with a Dental Implant Bridge.
Old fashioned bridges essentially used existing teeth on either side of the missing teeth to support the row of replacement teeth in between. However, the natural teeth must be aggressively cut down to support the bridge teeth. These replacement teeth “bridge” the gap between the anchor teeth. Old fashioned bridges hurt natural teeth and have a high failure rate due to decay and the natural teeth after having been aggressively cut needing root canal therapy.
Implant-supported bridges are far superior to old fashioned bridges for a number of reasons:
Dental implant bridges allow Dr. Nugent to replace the maximum amount of teeth while using the fewest dental implants. The dental implant bridge will never get decay, will never need root canals, does not damage natural teeth and is long lasting.
Missing All of your Teeth
When patients are missing all of their teeth Dr. Nugent recommends two different options: 1) Implant Dentures 2) CONUS Dentures or 3) All on Four Permanent Teeth
Dental implant dentures are the new standard of care when Patients are missing all of their teeth. Dental implant dentures are secure and stable as they “snap” onto the implants creating a solid foundation.
