Are Your Teeth Ready for Turkey?

This November, we have one important question to ask you: are your teeth ready for Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is filled with the foods you look forward to enjoying all year. Mashed potatoes made from real potatoes, not the stuff out of the box. Handmade stuffing that’s just die for. That perfectly roasted turkey; everything with gravy poured over the top of it.

But life is just less fun when it becomes hard to eat the foods you really enjoy. At no time is this more true than during the holiday season. You’re spending a lot of time with fiends and family. You may even spend hours slaving over the hot stove to craft the perfect meal; it’s a cruel twist of irony if it hurts ti chew all the foods you just made.

At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we can help get you chewing once more. In today’s post of our dental health blog, we’re going to tell you a little bit more about how we can get you chewing again. We can help repair a damaged tooth with a same-day dental crown. We can restore missing teeth with dental implants and dental bridges. If you need dentures, we offer some of the very best available in all of the Lone Star State.

Repairing Teeth with Same-Day Dental Crowns

Often times people have a hard time chewing due to damage or decay to their teeth. Sometimes this damage is as result of poor oral hygiene; but damage can also be caused by simple genetic factors or even an accident. With a dental crown, we can help get you chewing in comfort again.

A dental crown is specially-designed to repair a damaged, decayed, or even broken tooth. A crown is sort of like a cap for your tooth; we remove the decay and damaged portion of your tooth and then restore it with a dental crown. We also use dental crowns to restore teeth after we clean infection out of them during a root canal.

We can also install a dental crown in just one appointment. This process takes weeks at other offices because they have their crowns made off-site at a dental lab. At our office, we have the latest in computer technology. With the CEREC system, we can actually produce your dental crown in our office. That means you only have to visit once to have a tooth repaired. We can having you chewing again with plenty of time to spare before Thanksgiving.

Replace Your Missing Teeth with Dental Implants and Dental Bridges

Dental implants are the industry-leading method of replacing missing teeth. When you are missing a tooth, the simple act of chewing can cause a lot of stress to your remaining teeth. This can turn eating into a painful endeavor, and actually endangers the health of your remaining teeth.

Dental implants are helping us change all of that at the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX. A dental implant is a biocompatible metal rod which we actually install into your jawbone. A dental implant takes the place of your natural tooth root; the rod will actually fuse with your jawbone. Once the implant has been placed, we use it to permanently support a crown, bridge, or denture. We can use dental implants to replace a solitary missing teeth, a row of missing teeth, or even all of your teeth.

Although dental implants are considered the industry’s leading method for replacing missing teeth, a dental bridge can also be an effective solution. Dental bridges are used when you are missing one tooth or several adjacent teeth. A dental bridge holds artificial teeth which restore the gaps in your smile. A bridge can be supported by either dental implants or by two crowns attached to your remaining natural teeth. A dental bridge is an excellent choice if you are not a candidate for dental implants.

Replace Your Teeth with Our Premium Dentures

Dentures are perhaps the most time-tested method for replacing missing teeth. We offer both full dentures,(designed to replace an entire row of your teeth) and partial dentures (designed to replace a few missing teeth.) Our dentures are made out of premium materials and constructed with care. The end result is a beautiful set of false teeth which look incredibly lifelike. Our dentures last for a very long time if handled with proper care and cleaning habits. We can also stabilize your dentures into place with dental implants.
