Deer Park Texas Dental Implants:
Principally a dental implant is a fixed restoration (does not come out at night) to replace one, multiple or all missing teeth. The implant fixture itself is made from titanium that your jaw bone will fuse to therefore providing a solid foundation to restore your tooth/teeth.
Dr. Nugent takes time to carefully analyze and plan your dental implant procedure. He has vast experience with dental implants and he uses the latest technologies to provide safes and more predictable implant surgeries. For example, Dr. Nugent uses advanced three-dimensional planning software and Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) to ensure the most accurate placement of your dental implants.
Dental Implant Parts
- Dental Implant – a titanium cylinder that is placed into the jawbone
- Abutment – screws into the implant and emerges out of the gum tissue and is the base for the crown
- Crown – the cosmetic porcelain restoration that looks, functions and feel like a natural tooth
Dental Implant Dentures
Old fashioned dentures merely rest on the gum tissue. They are loose and ill-fitting. However, dental implant dentures are stable and secure. The implants are utilized to anchor the dentures. No more messy denture adhesives with implant dentures.
