Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and if you’re like most people, you begin to salivate at the thought of all the delicious foods that fill a table this time of year. But if you’re missing one or more teeth, you may yourself dreading Turkey Day because of your inability to eat the foods you love. Fortunately, there is a solution that can not only give you back your beautiful appearance but also have you enjoying both food and family this year. Read on to find out how eating with dental implants can make a drastic difference in how you view the holidays.
How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Thanksgiving
Whether you’ve been living with dentures that require frequent relining or replacement, or you recently lost multiple teeth as a result of poor oral hygiene or sudden damage, dental implants can be an intriguing and welcoming change to life without natural teeth.
By choosing to embrace these permanent tooth replacement fixtures, you can expect to reap many benefits when it comes to enjoying Thanksgiving, such as:
Eating All the Foods You Love
If you’re being honest, Thanksgiving is not an ideal time to “watch your weight.” With so many delectable desserts, side dishes, and of course main entrees, who wants to skip out on grandma’s famous pecan pie? When equipped with dental implants, you don’t have to worry about focusing more on swallowing to keep your denture in place. Instead, you can eat freely and enjoy a stronger, healthier bite. Your teeth will be permanently in place, allowing you to forgo the potential of your teeth slipping or falling out while talking to family.
Improved Oral Health
Dental implants offer far more than traditional dentures. Apart from their natural appearance and feel, they also enable you to enjoy greater oral health because of the implant’s ability to stimulate the jawbone. This added benefit makes it possible to stave off the possibility of facial collapse or sagging and instead, embrace a more youthful appearance that will have your family and friends wondering how you achieved such a beautiful smile.
Preparing to Smile for Photos
How long has it been since you’ve seen your aunt and uncle who live across the country? Are you guilty of letting the years pass without seeing your grandparents? Because Thanksgiving is a time to gather together as friends and family, you’ll want to feel confident and comfortable taking photos to capture these special moments. With dental implants, you no longer need to hide behind your hands or offer up a closed-lipped smile. Instead, you can smile bigger than before and feel good about the way you and your new teeth look.
