The holidays are meant to be a time to enjoy friends, family, and good food. However, when you are living with missing teeth, these joyous occasions can be marred by embarrassment and the inability to take part in the most memorable festivities. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way! Eating with dental implants can give you a new lease on life. Not only will you be able to consume all your favorite foods, but you’ll do it with greater confidence. Read on and learn how dental implants can make a difference at your Thanksgiving table this year.
Eat the Foods You Want
With dental implants, you don’t have to worry about your restorations slipping or falling out. Instead, their surgical placement and ability to fuse with your jawbone and surrounding tissues makes it possible for these posts to remain firmly intact. This added level of security allows your implants to function just like regular teeth. This means you can enjoy all your favorite holiday dishes.
Keep Your Oral Health in Check
By choosing dental implants to restore your smile, you’re not just enhancing your overall aesthetic, you’re also taking steps to improve your oral health. When teeth are missing, the alveolar bone begins to weaken. Over time, this negatively impacts the jawbone, resulting in deterioration and changes in your facial shape. Placing implants into the jawbone allows for new bone to grow and remain stimulated, keeping it strong and durable. Not only does this create a more stable foundation for your natural teeth, but it also makes it possible for your dental implants to remain in place for a lifetime.
Embraced Renewed Confidence
When seated at the Thanksgiving table, you no longer have to smile with your lips tightly closed. Instead, you can show off your natural-looking teeth with pride. Your family and friends will never be able to tell the difference between your real and artificial teeth because your restorations will look just like regular tooth enamel. You can expect to have greater confidence in your smile and the way you look this year. You might even recommend a family photo or two!
As you prepare to enjoy Thanksgiving with your closest friends and family, be thankful for your dental implants. Not only do they make it possible to have a more memorable holiday, but you’ll be able to enjoy a better quality of life year-round.
