What are the steps in getting dental implants?
First seek out a dentist who has a strong passion for implant dentistry. Most dentists prefer to work as a team with Oral Surgeons to produce predictable outcomes. However, Dr. Nugent is one of a select few general dentists that can perform the implant surgery from start to finish. On compromised cases Dr. Nugent will refer his patient to the oral surgeon. Dr. Nugent will evaluate your jaw and take advanced 3-D x-rays to evaluate your jaw bone.
Then the surgery takes place and the implant is inserted into the jaw bone. The implant acts like a tooth root and then the abutment and crown are placed.
Dental Implants can be utilized to anchor and stabilize dentures. These implant dentures are secure and stable. Old fashioned dentures only rest on the gum tissue and are extremely unstable. Patients can eat the food they love. Patients throw away their denture adhesives because the implant dentures do not move.
