With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, you’re probably already thinking about the mouth-watering food and the many friendly faces of those you’ll be spending time with this year.
Our team at Cosmetic Dental Associates wants to do all we can to make sure missing teeth don’t stand in the way of a wonderful season of celebration!
So today, we’re sharing five ways that dental implants can make your holidays better!
#1: Your Dinner Plate Will Be Loaded With All Your Favorites!
We certainly don’t want to take anything away from the real meaning of the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s a time for us to reflect on the many blessings in our lives. But everyone knows that a close second in this holiday hierarchy is the food!
What’s Thanksgiving and the following holiday season without lots of delicious food? It’s something to look forward to this time of year, but missing teeth can put a damper on your experience.
You need all of your teeth, and you need them to work properly if you don’t want to restrict your food options. That’s where dental implants can offer a great benefit! No other tooth replacement option gives you the same bite power of dental implants, thanks to the way they’re anchored to your natural jawbone for strength and stability.
#2: Your Jawbone Will Remain Strong And Healthy!
One of the reasons tooth loss can be a threat to your health is that it keeps your jawbone from the stimulation it needs to stay strong and healthy. Dental implants are placed inside the jawbone so it will fuse to it and work like a synthetic root.
The benefit here is that it helps keep your jawbone engaged, which will protect you from future bone deterioration and future tooth loss.
#3: Your Teeth Won’t Feel Loose!
Some patients rely on dentures as a tooth replacement solution, but they can sometimes be uncomfortable and unreliable. That’s due to the fact that traditional dentures rest on top of the gumline with adhesives that can lead to gum irritation and an insecure bite.
This will inevitably affect your peace of mind when you’re sitting around the holiday dinner table! Dental implants offer stability thanks to their fusion with your jawbone that allows you to chew your food without worry or anxiety about your dentures feeling loose, or worse, falling out!
#4: Your Dentures Can Be Secured!
At Cosmetic Dental Associates, we want all our patients to have a full set of healthy teeth. Sometimes that means giving you a more secure option than removable dentures.
That’s because traditional dentures are held in place with adhesives, but this comes with certain limitations. We all know the holidays can be a painful reminder of those limitations because the adhesives, although effective, aren’t always strong enough to allow you to eat food that takes a little more power to tear and chew properly.
Our experienced professionals can secure your dentures with All-On-4 Implants. Thanks to our in-house laboratory and technology, we can fit you with load-bearing implant-retained dentures for a strong, stable bite this holiday season!
#5: Your Smile Will Be Complete!
One of the ways you’re affected by missing teeth is the obvious blow to your self-esteem about your smile. You’re embarrassed about the large empty space or spaces, or you’re ashamed about the state of your oral health and fear being judged by others.
Dental implants and restorations fill those spaces so your smile is once again complete. Imagine the difference is your level of confidence, especially at a time of year like the holiday season!
You’re likely to have plenty of opportunities to be around lots of people. A healthy, beautiful smile can do wonders for your self-esteem so you can enjoy yourself, mingle, and smile for photos!
