5 Reasons to Be Thankful for Your Dental Implants
November 3, 2022
Dental implants are often considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth; they’re capable of impressively replacing lost teeth in terms of look, feel, and functionality. To put it shortly, they do quite a lot for you, and you should be thankful for them, especially during the holiday season! Here are just a few reasons from your dentist about why implants are simply awesome for you and your smile.
1. Natural-Looking & Comfortable
While other tooth restoration options like dentures are known for often slipping around whenever you talk or eat, dental implants remain securely in place and in the proper positions at all times. Thanks to this stability, you can enjoy comfortable results that don’t just feel great—they look great, too! The implants are customized to fit your mouth, so you can be sure that your new pearly whites are as beautiful as they are functional.
2. Boosted Self-Esteem
Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, so having a beautiful, natural-looking set of teeth will work wonders for your self-confidence! Your smile will be at the center of all your family photos, and you’ll feel great about laughing, smiling, and chatting away at the dinner table.
3. No Dietary Restrictions
Nothing beats sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner and seeing the table lined with all of your mouth-watering favorites—and fortunately, dental implants will allow you to enjoy them all! Patients with other restoration solutions, like dentures, only gain back a portion of their bite force. But dental implants can restore a sufficient amount of bite power to your smile, meaning that mealtime will be better than ever.
4. Fewer Oral Health Issues
An unexpected dental emergency or nasty oral health issue could easily disrupt your holiday fun; fortunately, dental implants actively promote good oral health, since they help prevent problems from becoming serious in the first place. With dental implants, you’re at a greatly-lowered risk of developing things like gum infections—assuming you brush and floss diligently.
5. Enhanced Jawbone Support
Dental implants are composed of biocompatible materials that are able to fuse with your jawbone, which leads to unparalleled support and stability. This is very beneficial for your jawbone, since the forces exerted from your teeth prevent your jaw from prematurely deteriorating!
This holiday season, you should pause and take a moment to be thankful for everything that your dental implants do for you—because it is quite a lot!
