Any time you think about Thanksgiving, you’re probably inundated with images of delectable food spread throughout your kitchen and buffet tables. Your mouth waters as you anticipate the turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and the dessert. Oh… the dessert!
Those sensory fantasies are enough to sustain you over the next few weeks until Thanksgiving Day. But for anyone with missing teeth, thinking about delicious food only makes you ache with disappointment.
That’s because it’s just a painful reminder of all the ways you miss out on simple pleasures that others enjoy. Thanksgiving can be particularly challenging for you! Along with the chance to connect with family and friends and count your blessings, this is, without a doubt, the season to eat awesome food you love!
Dr. Tripp and our team at 7 O’Clock Dental wants you to enjoy Thanksgiving this year without having to forego anything from your plate. We also want you to look great for holiday pictures with a healthy, complete smile.
It’s that reason we’re devoting today’s blog to dental implants and how they can save your Thanksgiving this year!
How Dental Implants Can Save Thanksgiving
You’re dealing with the effects of tooth loss, whether you are currently missing one or more teeth, or you’re wearing slippery, poorly-fitted dentures. You’re making every effort to convince yourself that it’s not a big deal, and you don’t mind going through another holiday passing on certain culinary perks or smiling for pictures.
After all, you’re used to it, right?
You’re used to coming up with all kinds of reasons to avoid the group selfie with your siblings, parents, and grandparents. You’re used to suddenly needing to use the restroom or taking that (fake) phone call just in time for your friend’s group selfie forming in the kitchen.
You’re used to an extra helping of mashed potatoes to try and fill the emptiness a mouth-watering turkey leg would remedy. You’re used to all of it.
But you don’t have to be used to it. Not with dental implants in our New Orleans dental office. This tooth replacement option can turn your holiday experience around.
That’s thanks to the strength and stability you get with dental implants. They’re placed in your jawbone. Then, they’re covered with a natural-looking restoration. A synthetic root for your tooth, dental implants fuse to your bone, promote healthy growth, and give you the kind of bite power that’s as close to natural teeth as you can get!
Unlike slippery, poorly-fitted dentures, dental implants offer unmatched benefits. You can eat foods that take a lot strength to tear and chew, like turkey. You don’t have to restrict yourself, and who would want to on the most glorious food holiday of the year?
Dental implants also complete your smile, so when someone whips out their smartphone for a family photo or group selfie, you can smile with confidence and laugh without covering your mouth.
No more hiding in the spare bedroom. No more faking an important phone call or a bathroom emergency. And no more keeping your mouth tightly closed at a funny joke or shared memory. You can walk around and enjoy the emotional and psychological freedom of a complete, healthy, attractive smile!
Save Your Thanksgiving With Dental Implants!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. That means you’ll have so much to do in the next few weeks. You have the grocery list of items for the dressing, the casserole, and the dessert table. You have the turkey to order. You have Black Friday coupons to cut.
You don’t want to be burdened by a low self-esteem. The ache of longing as you watch everyone around you freely fill their plates with whatever they want. The fear of embarrassing yourself when your dentures fall out. The anxiety and shame about showing your smile in a photo.
You want to enjoy Thanksgiving with family, friends, and possibly new acquaintances. You want to eat the foods you love. You want to look great and feel confident.
Dental implants can give you that and save your Thanksgiving. But it starts with a phone call to 7 O’Clock Dental.
