Published: 11/08/2017Thanksgiving is a time to enjoy the company of family and friends while feasting on your favorite foods. Unfortunately, if you have missing teeth it can be challenging to fully enjoy the delights of the holiday. Foods that are chewy, crunchy or sticky can be difficult or even painful to eat if you don’t have all of your teeth.
Thankfully, there is a treatment available that could help you comfortably eat anything you want for Thanksgiving and every other holiday. Here are a few ways dental implants in Medford, NJ and Moorestown, NJ can restore your smile and dietary freedom.
Restored Dental Function
When you lose one or more teeth, your dental function is negatively affected. Normal activities like eating and speaking can become more difficult. If you have dental implants placed by an experienced periodontist, full dental function can be restored.
Once the implant treatment site has fully healed, you’ll once again be able to enjoy your favorite foods at any time. When Thanksgiving rolls around, you’ll have the ability to bite through the delicious turkey and sink your teeth into your favorite pecan pie.
For many people, the same set of implants can last a lifetime without requiring replacement. What this means for you is that once you have your implants placed by an experienced professional, you’ll have the ability to enjoy a variety of foods for years down the road. Just remember to take good care of your implants to maximize their useful lifespan.
Once placed, implants are permanent fixtures in the mouth. This means you won’t have to worry about using special pastes to secure them in place before eating, and you won’t have to take them out every night for cleaning. Instead, you’ll have the convenience of cleaning them just like you would clean your natural teeth.
