Thanksgiving is a time for coming together with family and enjoying an absolute feast. Not only does it bring around perennial favorites like turkey, stuffing, and green bean casserole, it also features a vast array of regional and cultural variations as people across the country celebrate their Thanksgiving with their favorite foods. Of course, it can be difficult to enjoy these foods if you’re currently missing teeth, which is why you should talk to an oral surgeon about getting dental implants before the holiday.
Advantages of Dental Implants
There are a couple of options for replacing missing teeth. If you’re only replacing a couple, a bridge can easily span the gap. If you need to replace a whole arch, dentures are a long-standing top choice. Dental implants can do the job of either of them, though, and they come with some advantages you just can’t get from the other options.
Don’t Wait to Replace Missing Teeth
When you lose teeth, your mouth begins to change immediately. The changes are slow, and you won’t notice them at first, but they can be difficult to undo. That’s because your teeth begin to shift to take advantage of the gap created by the ones that are now missing. The longer you wait, the more they will move, and the harder it will be to preserve your original smile.
