Thanksgiving might be a little different this year. You may not be able to gather with your entire family in person, we hope you can enjoy a virtual meal together. By enjoy, we mean eat everything that you want to eat.

If you are missing teeth or have dentures, you understand that may not be as simple as it sounds. This is why we want to discuss four reasons we are grateful to offer dental implants for our patients in and around Laredo, TX.

1. Eat what you like

Modern implants aren’t just placeholders for your crowns, bridges, and dentures. They create an active connection to your jawbone, which allows you to generate more force in each bite and chew. As a result, you can eat practically as well as someone with a full set of healthy teeth.

2. Skip the adhesives

If you have traditional dentures, you know that over time they feel looser. It often takes more and more adhesive to keep them someone secure. Even then, you can’t bite with the same force that you could before you lost your teeth. With implants, your replacement teeth stay firmly in place.

3. Protect your jaw

Bone loss is common after someone loses teeth. This is primarily because you no longer have roots to stimulate new growth and keep your jaw healthy. By getting implants, you are replacing your lost roots and stimulating your jaw to keep it strong.

4. Smile & speak with confidence

We have heard many stories from people with dentures about their “teeth” falling out when they tried to smile or speak. By getting implants to support your replacement teeth, you can smile and speak naturally and normally without worrying about where your teeth might end up.
