What comes to mind when you think of summer? The hot sun, family vacations, spending all day lounging by the pool, and tossing baseballs back and forth in the backyard?
What about the things special to summer that excite our senses. The smell of hotdogs and fresh peanuts at the baseball game, the sweet smell of newly sprouted blooms flying through the air, and the familiar robust aroma of people firing up the grill all through the neighborhood.
You can probably relate to this kind of anticipation when you think about summer and all the fun that comes with it. But if you have missing teeth, this time of year doesn’t inspire the same kind of pleasurable sensory images.
Instead, you think about how many invitations for social gatherings with friends and neighbors you’re going to have to dodge just because you’re too embarrassed to show your smile. Or you think about all the delicious food you’ll have to miss out on simply because you can’t eat the same things you used to thanks to your missing teeth or slippery dentures.
We have good news for you! Our team at Bright Star Dental offers options in tooth replacement that can help you get back to the high quality of life you deserve!
A highly-skilled implant specialist can place a dental implant that acts as an artificial tooth root and secures itself to your jawbone. Then our talented Dr. Gilbert will cover the implant with a beautiful, natural-looking dental restoration so you can resume all the same activities you used to enjoy.
So why would you want to choose dental implants as your tooth replacement option? That’s what today’s blog will tell you! We’re talking about how dental implants can improve your smile and your summer.
How Dental Implants Improve Your Smile
Let’s be honest. If you have missing teeth or if you wear removable dentures, it’s hard to feel good about your smile. More than likely, you spend a lot of time on the sidelines of life while everyone around you seems to have all the fun.
You deserve a full set of attractive, natural-looking teeth that will give you the courage to get out there and socialize. Dental implants do just that. They provide strengthÂ and durability, while Dr. Gilbert’s expertly crafts restorations that look just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can restore the appearance of your smile so you can look great and feel excited about accepting those invitations for social summer events!
How Dental Implants Improve Your Bones
Your jawbone must have stimulation to stay engaged, healthy, and strong. Removable dentures simply rest on the gumline and don’t provide that stimulation. But dental implants do!
Whether you have a single implant or a full-arch restoration secured to dental implants, you will have a bite force that’s almost exactly like you had before, which means your jawbone can stay strong enough to maintain the structural integrity of your face and the health of your surrounding teeth.
How Dental Implants Improve Your Summer Experience
Improving the appearance of your smile and the bite force of your teeth means you’re also able to improve your summer experience by the foods you can once again eat. When you have dentures that shift around or if you haven’t replaced your missing teeth, it has a huge impact on your food choices, and chances are, you’re going to limit yourself nutritionally as a result.
You’re also going to stay away from foods that are more difficult to chew such as steak, barbecue ribs, crunchy fresh vegetables and corn on the cob, all of which are staples of American summertime fare!
With dental implants and implant-supported dentures, you’re options are no longer limited and you can come to the table with the same delicious food on your plate as everyone around you.
