Greetings Houston! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of the Antoine Dental Center. Have you finalized your Halloween plans yet? Have you bought bags and bags of candy to hand out to trick or treaters? What kind of candy will you be passing out?
Halloween is ruled with fun treats to eat. But do you have to worry about the kind of foods you eat due to broken or missing teeth? Missing or damaged teeth can make life incredibly difficult. The food you eat is often something you just take for granted; like water and air. But what happens when you can’t eat it anymore?
Do you have to worry about pain and discomfort? Does your mouth bleed when you eat? If that sounds like you, you’ve probably begun eating soft and softer foods. Eventually, your nutrition will start to suffer due a lack of variety in your diet. But a trip to the Antoine Dental Center could help get back your ability to chew.
At the Antoine Dental Center, we offer a range of procedures designed to help you restore your ability to chew. We can replace damaged teeth with same-day dental crowns. We can replace missing teeth with premium dentures, dental bridges , and dental implants. In today’s blog post, we’d like to tell you a little more about these various options.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
We offer CEREC same-day crowns at our comfortable and modern office. Crowns are an ideal solution for repairing damage or decay to a tooth. A dental crown is essentially a cap which is fitted over the remaining portion of your natural tooth. They help to protect your tooth from further damage or decay.
Dental crowns normally take several appointments to apply, but not anymore! We know use CEREC computer technology to create a crown the same-day of your appointment. This quicker process saves you time and money. Best of all you can walk-in with a damaged tooth, then walk-out with a new tooth it’s place.
With a dental bridge, we can replace one or several adjacent teeth. A dental bridge holds artificial teeth, and is held in place with porcelain crowns. A dental bridge can also be secured with dental implants. Dental bridges are a great way to fill in your gap of missing teeth. Now you can chew without pain once more!
Dentures can replace several teeth (a partial denture) or all of your teeth. Our dentures are custom-fitted to ensure they stay in place when you eat. In addition, our premium dentures are incredibly lifelike and restore your ability to chew.
Our dentures will last for many years if you follow proper care procedures. But if you want the most secure-fit possible, you should consider dentures supported by dental implants. Then you never have to worry about applying adhesive to your dentures, or about your dentures falling out during the course of a meal or conversation.
Dental implants are most permanent and secure way to replace a missing tooth. A dental implant is a titanium post which we painlessly embed into your jawbone. This post takes the place of where your missing tooth root was. After the post has fused to your jawbone, we can place a dental restoration on top.
Dental implants can be used to secure dental bridges, dental crowns, and dentures. No matter what your situation may be, if you having missing teeth, you should consider a dental implant. Our skilled dentist have years of experience and education in placing dental implants.
