With the holidays just around the corner, you’re probably thinking about seeing family and friends whom you haven’t seen in a while. If you’re missing a few teeth and you’re embarrassed about the way you look, it can put a damper on Thanksgiving festivities. Fortunately, you can completely transform your smile and greet your family proudly this Thanksgiving with the help of dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
In addition to the obvious benefit of improving the way you look by filling in gaps in your smile, implants can provide you with a host of other benefits as well. A few include:
Eating Thanksgiving food can be challenging when you’re missing teeth. Chewy turkey, crunchy pecan pie and many other Thanksgiving dishes can be impossible to chew when your teeth are full of gaps. Food can also scratch or burn the sensitive exposed gum tissue in empty tooth sockets. When you choose to replace your lost teeth with implants, you fill in the gaps in your smile and make it easier to enjoy your favorite Thanksgiving indulgences.
Dental implants are unique from other tooth replacement options in their ability to support jaw bone health. Just like tooth roots, implant posts stimulate the jaw bone and keep it from deteriorating and losing mass over time. If you want to keep your jaw bone as healthy as possible after tooth loss, then implants are a wise choice.
Another benefit of implants is that they are known to last for a very long time as long as they are placed expertly and are accepted by the body. With proper care, they can last a lifetime!
