Fall is in full swing and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This means it is time to get ready to be surrounded by family and enjoy some amazing food. As you prepare for the holiday, you start decorating and digging out old family recipes. Not to mention any travel plans or cleaning if you are hosting the Thanksgiving get-together. Another thing that should be on your mind as Thanksgiving approaches is your oral health. Below, we will talk about how dental implants can greatly improve your holiday experience.

Drawbacks of Missing Teeth

If you have any missing teeth, you know it can cause some trouble during the holidays. First, you may be self-conscious of how you look if you smile in a family photo. Secondly, missing teeth make it difficult to enjoy the foods you love. Biting into turkey becomes a challenge when teeth are missing. If you have removable dentures, you can probably only enjoy soft foods–and while mashed potatoes are great, there are a lot more foods to enjoy.

How Dental Implants Can Make You Thankful

Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and perform just like natural teeth. With strong, great-looking synthetic teeth, you can be thankful for your ability to:

  • Eat everything on the table, including turkey, ham, and pecan pie.
  • Chew easily.
  • Fill your mouth with food instead of small bites.
  • Confidently smile for holiday photos.

There are always plenty of reasons to be grateful when surrounded by family on Thanksgiving, but why not take it to the next level? You do not have to deal with missing teeth or removable dentures anymore. Implants will give you so many more reasons to be thankful.
