This Thanksgiving, don’t worry about coming up with an excuse for why you won’t be having a plate in front of everyone. Dental implants will enable you to eat what everyone else is having and talk clearly while you’re doing it. Well, don’t talk with your mouth full, but you get the idea. Keep reading to learn about eating with dental implants in Richardson to enhance your Thanksgiving and the many years to follow.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and substitutes damaged or missing teeth with artificial ones that look and function like the real thing. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that don’t fit well. Implants also offer an option when a lack of natural teeth roots don’t allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements.
How Can Dental Implants Improve My Quality of Life?
Committing to dental implants in Richardson is investing in yourself, as they can improve your quality of life on multiple fronts:
- Enjoy good oral health: Dental implants are the longest-lasting solution for missing teeth with proper care. But there’s more to it. Since your missing tooth root is replaced with an implant, it promotes new bone growth over time. As a result, it stabilizes all the surrounding tooth and gum tissues to preserve your facial structure and dental health.
- Indulge in your favorite holiday foods: Eating with dental implants ensures you’ll have a strong bite to tackle Thanksgiving and any other holiday meal that crosses your path. Dental implants offer nearly the same bite power as natural teeth so that you can fill your plate with everything your mother and other relatives made!
- Smile with confidence: For many people, the holidays are an opportunity to visit with family members you haven’t seen in a long time. You want to feel free to smile and laugh, instead of being self-conscious and wondering how you look to your loved ones. Your dental implants will let you have a wonderful time and not give your smile a second thought.
The decision to choose dental implants can improve your Thanksgiving meal experience, as well as dining for every other holiday of the year. Truthfully, any given Thursday is also much better when you are benefitting from the premier tooth replacement option.
