Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. It’s one of our favorite celebrations of the year. We enjoy spending time with family and friends. We might even watch a few football games.
But we also love the food.
Whether it’s baked turkey or ham, buttery corn on the cob, or any of the delicious desserts you’ll find, it’s a real pleasure to dine of those things during the fourth Thursday in November.
We also know that patients who have loose-fitting dentures may not enjoy the Thanksgiving meal as much as they could. When you aren’t sure if your teeth will stay in place, you may avoid putting certain foods on your plate, no matter how much you would like to eat them. You also may avoid dining out with family, friends, and co-workers.
We don’t want you to miss out on the pleasure of eating the food that you love. It’s why we offer dental implants at our office in Beverly, MA. Discover how implants could upgrade your quality of life. Call 978-288-1946 to schedule a consultation at Martins Dental Partners.
Build Strong Restorations
Dental implants are an invaluable service when it comes to replacement teeth that function more like the real thing. Implants take the place of the roots of your missing teeth. When they are placed directly in your jawbone, they provide benefits that you will not get from traditional dentures and bridges.
The implants anchor your restoration in place. That means you won’t need adhesives to keep them somewhat stable. Implants stimulate your jaw as well, which prevents the kind of bone loss that frequently occurs with standard dentures.
Implants also establish a direct connection from your dentures to your jawbone. This means you can generate nearly as much force as you could when you had all your teeth. As a result, you can bite and chew anything you are in the mood to eat. Now, it does take a little time to complete this process, but it could make further Thanksgiving (and many other family meals) much more enjoyable for you.
Choose Quality Care
Our own Dr. Valerie Martins is a board-certified periodontist and a member of the Academy of Osseointegration. Without getting too technical, this means she understands the leading cause of tooth loss, and she has spent a significant amount of time learning about the best ways to replace missing teeth.
Because of her background, you can have your implants placed and restored at our office. Many general dentists have to refer patients elsewhere for at least part of this teeth replacement process. By coming to Martins Dental Partners, you can have every step of your procedure handled by the same doctor. This can give you more confidence knowing that the potential for miscommunication is reduced when you go to one doctor, who understands the specifics of your situation.
Take Control Of Your Situation
Quit skipping dessert! Eat that the corn or that apple with confidence that your teeth won’t get pulled out of your mouth.
