Deer Park Texas Dental Implant Options:
Implant Dentistry has come a long way in the past twenty years. There are new cosmetic implant dentistry procedures, more robust dental materials, and improved surgical techniques.
Most patients will not need to take advantage of advanced implant dentistry until later in life. It is estimated more than 42% of people over the age of 65 have experienced significant tooth loss and must resort to old fashioned dentures. There was not an ideal way to help these patients, They were stuck with old fashioned dentures that did not work very well. However, now there are dental implants that can solve many dental problems.
Ask any denture wearer and they will tell you that there is nothing more frustrating than unstable dentures. An ill-fitting old fashioned denture causes accelerated bone loss. As more bone and gum tissue is lost the denture becomes more unstable. Dental implant dentures will bring back bite strength, stability and, most important, self-confidence. Don’t accept dentures as your fate. Intervene early and replace missing teeth with dental implants.
Dental Implant Processes:
- Dr. Nugent will physically examine the implant site. Then a CT Conebeam X-ray will be taken so Dr. Nugent can “digitally” place your implant. Therefore, at the time of surgery ideal placement can be achieved without guessing.
The jawbone will slowly grow up to and fuse with the implant in a process called “osteointergration.”
- Once the bone healing is complete Dr. Nugent will take impressions so that the final prosthesis is made. It can be a tooth or an implant denture.
- Delivery of the final prosthesis.
Implants can be used to replace single teeth. Or they can be utilized to make dental implant bridges, dental implant dentures and the All on Four.
