As we get closer and closer to a busy holiday season, people struggling with tooth loss become more and more anxious.
That’s because you’re dreading another holiday where you can’t eat all the delicious dishes on the Thanksgiving table and holiday serving trays. You can’t show your teeth when you laugh at your hilarious uncle. You can’t smile with confidence for family photos and group selfies with family friends.
Advanced Dental Concepts wants to change all of that! Today, we’re dedicating the blog to tooth replacement options, like dental implants, and why not is the the best time of the year to finally get your complete, healthy smile back!
Holidays pose unique challenges for people struggling with missing teeth. Whether it’s just one tooth or an entire set of missing teeth, the holidays have a way of reminding you of what else you’re missing.
Here are some ways missing teeth can spoil your Thanksgiving and the holiday season that follows:
-You’re too worried about showing your teeth to feel comfortable smiling for family photos.
-You’re embarrassed by your toothless smile, so you reject all those holiday party invitations.
-You’re preoccupied with keeping your mouth closed around other people instead of enjoying the company.
-You can’t eat certain foods that demand a strong bite.
-You can’t chew without pain or discomfort.
These are just some of the reasons that make the holidays the perfect time to do something about your missing teeth for good!
For strength, durability, improved appearance, and function, no other tooth replacement options comes quite as close as dental implants. In our Roseville, CA dental office, we can use them to replace one tooth, or stabilize your full-arch replacement teeth!
Here are some unique advantages of dental implants:
Dental Implants Give You A Natural-Looking Smile
Dental implants are capped by dental crowns, which are made to look, feel, and function just like real teeth. It allows you to have a lifelike smile that will make you feel confident to pose for family photos, pursue romantic relationships, and to reach toward professional goals.
With a beautiful smile, you feel attractive and courageous, which definitely comes in handy during the busy social season of the holidays.
Dental Implants Encourage Healthy Bone Growth
If you choose not to replace missing teeth, it can lead to more tooth loss in the future. That’s because empty spaces in your mouth will give harmful bacteria a place to thrive as they feed on sugars and food particles. Then, you’re leaving your teeth and gums vulnerable to attack.
This can lead to deterioration of your jawbone, threatening the surrounding structures. But dental implants fuse to your jawbone and promote healthy new growth of your jawbone. Not only does this provide strength and stability, but it keeps your remaining teeth healthy and intact.
Dental Implants Can Last A Lifetime
Traditional dentures and dental restorations both have their place in modern tooth replacement despite the fact that they’ve been around for a long time. But when it comes to the longest lasting replacement solution, dental implants reign supreme!
Dental implants can last a lifetime because of their fusion to your jawbone and the resulting continued bone growth. Rather than restorations that can fall out or break, or dentures that need to be replaced every few years, dental implants can only be removed by your dentist, making them the most durable option available!
During this special time of year, you need strong, healthy teeth that won’t keep you out of the culinary extravaganza! You also need a beautiful, complete smile that will make you feel confident for the string of parties and photo opportunities.
Dr. Miller and our team of highly-trained professionals are here to help you get both! With the many strategies in tooth replacement at Advanced Dental Concepts, you’re sure to find the treatment plan for the natural-looking, healthy smile you need and deserve this holiday season!
