Frequently Asked Questions At Clear Lake Dental Care

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an extremely healthy way to replace teeth that you’ve lost. When you lose teeth, the roots of those teeth go with them, and when there are no roots, the bone and gum tissue that surrounded the root is not supported anymore. When the bone and gum tissue have no roots to keep them healthy, they begin to deteriorate. There are a number of things that can happen when bone and tissue start to deteriorate, including a change in appearance and the shifting of natural teeth that you have remaining.

When you choose to replace your missing teeth with dental implants, you are making a choice that you won’t regret because it is the healthiest choice that you can make! Dental implants replace the roots of your teeth and make sure that bone and gum tissue don’t deteriorate. This will ensure that your appearance stays in tact and that your smile is looking gorgeous for everyone to see!

How Will Same-Day Crowns Benefit Me?

The main benefit that you will experience when you have a crown placed using the CEREC same-day crown system is that you will have more time on your hands to do what you want. By this, we mean that you will only have to come in for one appointment to have your crown placed. At other practices, you will have to make multiple appointments to have just one crown placed.

Another major benefit that you will experience with having same-day crowns placed at Clear Lake Dental Care is that the crowns will be of the highest quality. While some other practices will use amalgam or other types of metals to forge your crowns, we will use high-quality porcelain! You’ll be extremely happy when you have your crown placed in just one visit!

How Is Invisalign Different From Traditional Metal Braces?

While traditional metal braces come with pesky brackets and wires that are bonded to your teeth, Invisalign straightens your teeth using clear aligners that resemble a retainer. No one will be able to tell that you are having orthodontic treatment, and cleaning your teeth will be much easier! Cleaning your teeth will be easier because you’ll be able to remove your Invisalign aligners to eat and clean your teeth.
