Without teeth, patients suffer from the physical consequences of missing teeth. These problems include:
- Ugly gaps / spaces in teeth
- Diminished chewing ability
- Bone and gum tissue loss
- Unable to eat a proper healthy diet
- Shifting teeth, which causes jaw alignment problems and results in TMD (temporomandibular disorder) or TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder
- Risk of overload fractures of the jawbone and teeth as the remaining teeth take a heavier load
Dental implant surgery involves placing a titanium implant into the jawbone. There it is allowed to heal. The bone will grow up to and fuse to the implant.
Once the implant is integrated into the bone Dr. Nugent will attach the abutment. The abutment screws into the implant and will serve as the base for the new cosmetic porcelain crown. The new fully restored dental implant tooth is brushed and flossed just like natural teeth.
Dental implants can accommodate a single missing tooth or several missing teeth. Also, Dr. Nugent can create dental implant dentures.
Dental Implant Dentures are secure and stable. The denture will “snap” onto the implants creating a stable and secure denture.
