Welcome to the Antoine Dental Center blog!
Today we want to talk about a tough topic: tooth loss in adults. When this happens, there most assuredly won’t be any tooth fairies dropping by to stuff cash under your pillow. But that’s not the worst of it.
Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and make it difficult to eat and carry on a conversation. Missing teeth can also increase your risk of periodontal disease, cavities, bone loss, tooth loss, and deterioration of your facial structure.
But there is some good news for those of you dealing with this bad situation: dental implants are a viable solution for your problems. And our team of highly skilled implant dentists have undertaken hundreds of hours of education and advanced training to be able to provide you with this permanent fix.
You will love all that our implants can do for you. Keep reading to see why, and then be sure to get on our calendar with your implant consultation in our Houston office.
Implants Are Accessible
This simple surgical procedure involves a two-step process.
The implants themselves are titanium screw-like posts that replace the root of your natural tooth. Over a period of about 4 months, your jawbone heals around the implant and absorbs it. After the healing period, we will be able to attach an abutment to the implant to firmly hold your restoration in place. These restorations include porcelain crowns, dental bridges, or dentures.
Implants Restore Your Good Looks
Without a full set of teeth, your smile, along with your confidence, will plummet. And you will look old before your time. As such, you social and professional worlds will be adversely impacted.
Lucky for you, the crown we place over the implant will look and feel completely natural, it will give you a fuller smile and facial support. You’ll be back in action before you know it!
Implants Fit Naturally
It is not an exaggeration to say that, when it comes to artificial teeth, nothing will be as easy or as comfortable as a dental implant. Our implant and crown combination feels great in your mouth.
Implants Give You Biting Power
After the second part of the procedure, you will recover real biting power. This means that you can go back to eating the foods you love, and the fiber-rich items that keeps you healthy and happy.
Implants Are Easy To Care For
With implants, you just keep brushing twice a day and flossing like you normally would, and come into our office for regular checkups to make sure your gums are healthy.
