Decay and Failing Dentistry


Dental Implants Pasadena Texas:

Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth because a dental implant replaces the ENTIRE tooth.

Pasadena Texas Dental ImplantsA dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is placed into the jawbone. There it acts like a replacement tooth root. The jaw bone will grow up to and fuse to the implant locking it into place.

Next, impressions are taking to fabricate the abutment and crown. The abutment screws into the dental implant and serves as the foundation for which the porcelian crown will rest on. A completed dental implant looks, functions and feels like a natural tooth.


In the past bridges were the best way to replace teeth. The problem was that two healthy teeth had to be cut down to pegs to support the three tooth bridge. Also, a bridge fuses teeth together and are very difficult to floss. Lastly, a bridge does nothing to stimulate the jawbone. Thus, the bone and gum tissue around a bridge starts to disapear.

The RED shows where the bone has disappeared. Again, an old fashioned bridge does nothing to preserve the jawbone. The MAGENTA represents decay.  This patient had multiple failing teeth. It was decided to extract the teeth and place dental implants. Because the bone loss was so severe, Dr. Nugent replaced two teeth on one dental implant.
