When you see bowls filled with leftover Halloween candy, do you wish you could still snack on your favorite treats? With Thanksgiving coming up, would you like to be able to eat anything you want during the big meal?
If you are missing teeth or have traditional dentures, you are aware that may not be possible. Sure, you might be able to enjoy some softer candy, and you can always eat mashed potatoes during your family’s Thanksgiving feast.
You may not have time to change that before this year’s holiday season, but you can do something that will help you enjoy future Halloweens, Thanksgivings, and more. You can get dental implants at Complete Health Dentistry of WNY.
We’ve witnessed what implants have done for many of our patients in and around Buffalo, NY. Call 716-272-1257 now to schedule a consultation to discover how they could help you.
Take A Bite Out Of Life
Eating is important. It affects your health, and it impacts your quality of life. Biting into and savoring the taste of your favorite foods is one of life’s little pleasures. Knowing that you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want can improve your day-to-day experience.
When you have implant-supported dentures, you can bite and chew practically as well as anyone with a full set of healthy, natural teeth. When you have implants to secure your dentures, you don’t worry about your replacement teeth sliding around when you speak or try to eat certain foods.
You can bite down naturally. You can chew with forces similar to what you could before you lost your teeth. Dining out with friends or having big meals with family is more enjoyable when you are confident that you can eat anything on your plate.
Build A Stronger Smile
Implants were made to take the place of the roots of missing teeth. Other restorations (crowns, bridges, and dentures) replace the natural crowns of your lost teeth.
Even though you couldn’t see them, roots played a vital role in your oral health. They stimulated your jaw, which encouraged new bone growth. This helps your jaw remain healthy and strong. Without roots or something to replace them, your jaw can lose bone density. That can lead to additional tooth loss and leave dentures feeling loose and unstable.
By getting implants, you can recreate the stimulation that your roots once provided. Having a healthy jaw can, in turn, hold your implants securely in place. With a series of implants, you can anchor your dentures in position and create a direct connection from your dentures to your jawbone. That is why you can bite with more power when compared to having traditional dentures alone.
Enjoy Many Holidays For Years To Come
You don’t have to settle for eating soft and mushy foods. You can restore your smile along with the power of your bite.
