Welcome to the Antoine Dental Center blog! We hope this online platform has some good dentistry-related information for you and your family. And if you live in Houston, we hope you’ll drop by sometime to check us out in-person. Once you are entrusted to our care, we’ll be there for the good times, and those unexpected bad times that inevitably arise over the course of a lifetime.
Today we want to talk about a certain kind of dental emergency: when a tooth, or multiple teeth, become dislodged. We aren’t talking so much about the times when the affected teeth can be saved, but rather when they can not. This is all too often the case. In fact, by all accounts, up to 70% of the adult population in the U.S. is missing at least one tooth. That’s a staggering figure, right?
Let’s get something straight: adult tooth loss is traumatic, no matter how it happens. Until you find a way to treat it, your health will suffer, and you won’t look or feel like your old self. It can be downright discouraging.
Around here, we have plenty of folks who can help you pick up the pieces and put your life back together. Our team of highly-skilled implant dentists has received hundreds of hours of education and advanced training in order to be able to provide this permanent solution for your missing teeth. You’ll be happy to know that we use the latest dental technology to plan the implants treatment that is right for you.
We firmly believe that a dental implant is your best restorative solution for a missing tooth. Here’s why:
This is a pretty basic surgical procedure that involves a two-step process. Your implant will be inserted and allowed to fuse into place. After sufficient healing, a crown will be placed. And then, you will be all set to get on with your life. Only now, you won’t have to be embarrassed about anything!
Implants Improve Your Looks
A restoration is ought to blend in with the rest of your smile, and a dental implant form our office makes that happen! The stunning crown we place over the implant will look totally natural, to the point that no one will ever know you’ve experienced tooth loss as an adult.
They Feel Natural
No other solution will be as comfortable as a dental implant. You will actually feel normal again. Our implant and crown combination are designed to feel so much like your natural tooth that you’ll probably forget you had to replace any at all.
Implants Bring Back The Bite Power
You will have a real biting force like before you lost any teeth. And you can go back to eating the foods you love, and the ones that keep you healthy! Your implant will be totally secure because it will bond directly to the jawbone. You can eat and smile with confidence.

As it happens, orthodontic solutions are the subject of today’s post. Have you ever considered getting the situation in your mouth straightened out once and for all?
Our dentists know that everyone has unique dental needs. As such, our office has kept up with the latest dental technology to be able to provide you with more treatment options, more comfortable treatments, and shorter treatment times. In fact, if you have crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, we think you’ll love the gorgeous grin that the forward-looking method known as Invisalign can deliver.
When Invisalign was introduced back in 1999, it was a real game-changer.
Our adult patients love that this technique is radically different than conventional approaches to orthodontic treatment.
Rather than metal brackets and wires, Invisalign works by employing a series of clear, plastic aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to facilitate the movements of your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible which means your treatment will be discreet and won’t attract any unwanted attention or rude comments from your peers. They are actually more like whitening trays than braces.
Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to their final desired position. Before you even start treatment, you will be able to get a preview of what your teeth will look like after Invisalign.
Every two weeks or so you must switch the aligners out yourself to keep things moving forward. Thus, there won’t be any inconvenient office visits required for tune-ups.
Not unlike traditional orthodontic wires, each Invisalign tray is specifically designed to move certain teeth, at very specific times. But the difference is that the aligners fit snugly for a more comfortable experience, one that won’t cause any mouth sores or irritation.
What’s more, they are not left in non-stop. Because they are removable, eating will be a lot more enjoyable, and cleaning will be a breeze. You won’t have to alter your diet or carry around special tools to remove trapped food. You just pop them out and rinse them under warm water.
The magic happens quickly too.
You won’t have to look back and measure years of your life by your treatment because the process is extremely effective and can be completed in about 12 months, depending on the severity of your dental issues.
Your Houston,TX orthodontic treatment will leave you smiling in the end. No kidding, the results are always stunning.
