Dental Implants For A Better Thanksgiving [BLOG]
We’re fast approaching the kind of holiday that demands strong, well-functioning teeth. Thanksgiving is no time for dental problems!
If you’re missing a tooth, several teeth, or are already living with traditional dentures, a holiday like this can be underwhelming, perhaps even dreadful, for a number of reasons.
But we hope today’s blog will give you some hope for turning that around!
That’s because our team at Hellertown Dental Group wants to make sure you know about dental implants and all the ways it can improve your Thanksgiving experience!
Missing Teeth Can Spoil Thanksgiving Dinner!
Yes, the holidays can be hectic, especially at the beginning of the season. Thanksgiving is the official kickoff for traveling relatives and overnight guests, cooking, baking, cleaning, and shopping.
Through it all, most of us are able to slow down here and there to enjoy delicious food and create special memories. But missing teeth and slippery dentures can spoil all of that!
Let’s take a look, however, at how dental implants can help you enjoy the upcoming season with strong teeth, a healthy mouth, and a beautiful smile!
You’ll Be Able To Eat Confidently With Implants
This is a time of year to reflect on all of your blessings. It’s the number one reason for the season!
But let’s be honest. A close second on that list of reasons is the mouth-watering food you get to enjoy on Thanksgiving!
Missing one or two teeth can certainly affect your ability to eat comfortably. You might have to chew on one side or avoid certain foods because it causes pain or discomfort. An even bigger problem exists for those who’ve lost many teeth and have to rely on removable dentures.
Since dentures rest on top of your gums with adhesives, you have to limit yourself to softer foods that are easier to chew. Who wants to restrict themselves on Thanksgiving?
Dental implants help you avoid that. Implants are placed in your jawbone and fuse to it securely for a bite that’s nearly as strong as that of natural teeth. That means you can eat all the foods you love and look forward to this time of year!
You’ll Be Able To Maintain Better Oral Health With Implants
Anyone who’s been affected by tooth loss and has experience wearing dentures knows how they impact your oral hygiene routine.
That’s because you have to take them out every day and clean them thoroughly to avoid the spread of germs. This might be fine for some people, but others find it a hassle.
Dental implants aren’t removable, except by your dentist. So you can care for your teeth just as you always did. You can brush and floss your teeth with ease for a cleaner, healthier mouth.
Another health benefit of dental implants is that they fuse to your jawbone to keep it strong and to allow healthy bone growth in the future. This actually helps to protect you from bone deterioration and more tooth loss down the road.
You’ll Be Able To Flash A Full, Healthy Smile With Implants
You know that the holidays are ripe for a ton of family photo ops! Especially with a smartphone in everyone’s pocket, you couldn’t avoid the cameras if you tried.
With dental implants, you don’t have to! Instead of feeling too embarrassed to smile, dental implants give you a full set of natural-looking teeth. That way you can huddle up with family and friends without worrying about being judged about your missing teeth.
Enjoy The Season With Dental Implants!
Thanksgiving is a time to soak up as much quality time with family and friends as you can. It’s a time to be fully present and enjoy the company of people you love. It’s a time to count your blessings.
And it’s a time for the most amazing food your dinner table sees all year! You deserve to fill your plate with all your favorites and to eat with confidence. Dental implants from Hellertown Dental Group can help you do that!
