Losing a tooth is tough no matter what time of year it is. However, when you lose a tooth right before the holiday season, it becomes even more detrimental. You likely already have so much planned, and a gap in your smile can dampen this joyous time of year. Here are just some of the reasons to replace missing teeth with dental implants.

Enjoy All Your Favorite Winter Foods

There are many types of foods that require you to have all your teeth to properly chew and enjoy. It will be hard chewing a tough piece of steak or prime rib, which are staples of many people’s Christmas dinners. Additionally, you may have trouble chewing caramel and sticky candies that show up in your stocking. A great part about a dental implant is that it functions just like a regular tooth. It is held securely in place due to the fact the titanium implant goes directly into the jawbone, eventually fusing with the bone tissue. You can eat anything you like without worrying about the restoration slipping.

Smile Wide for Pictures for a Beautiful Set of Teeth

Dental implants are designed to look as natural as possible. That means whether you need an implant in the front of your mouth or toward the back, it will blend in with the rest of your teeth wonderfully. Since people like to take pictures during the holidays, you do not want to commemorate the occasion with a big gap in your smile. Implants instill people with the confidence to smile and laugh with their loved ones. You will no longer feel as though you constantly have to hide your smile because implants provide you with a beautiful smile for decades to come.
