For most people, summertime is full of enjoyable experiences. It’s a time of year when our senses come alive thanks to the sights, the sounds, and the smells that fill the air. The beautiful bold colors of fresh blooms and trees, the symphony of birds overhead, and the smell of freshly cut grass and the grills being fired up throughout the neighborhood all contribute to summer’s delight.
But if you’re someone with missing teeth or removable dentures, summer awakens vastly different sensory details. The robust aroma of barbecue ribs and fresh corn on the cob wafting through the air only fills you with longing because it reminds you of just one of your limitations.
At the LANAP & Implant Center, we care about you, your health, and your quality of life. You deserve to get outside and take in all the pleasurable experiences that summer has to offer. That’s why we’re devoting today’s blog to the topic of dental implants, one of the many transformative options in tooth replacement we offer in our Collegeville and Williamsport, PA offices.
You don’t have to let one more summer go by without getting the most out of the experience… the social gatherings, sharing quality time with family and friends, and the chance to enjoy delicious food around the picnic table with the people you care about.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways dental implants can help improve your summer experience!
Feel More Confident With Dental Implants
No matter what time of year it is, missing teeth or loose fitting dentures affect you on so many levels, only one of which is a lack of confidence. You see evidence of its negative impact on your life all over the place.
When you reflect on all the times you’ve been in social situations, you can recall what it felt like to stifle your smile or hold back your laughter for fear of showing your teeth. You can’t enjoy yourself when you’re around a lot of people because of the mortifying possibility of showing the gaps in your smile or having your dentures shift around when you laugh or speak to others.
Dental implants can turn your confidence completely around. They allow you to have a full-set of secure, natural-looking teeth, which gives you the freedom to be exactly who you are.
This summer, you don’t have to turn down invitations for special events and occasions or stand off to the side while everyone else has a good time. You can join the party with a beautiful, confident smile.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods With Dental Implants
You’ve been there many times. You’re at a cookout, and you find a seat at the picnic table. You sit there eating your plateful of soft, bland food while those around you chomp on fresh, crunchy grilled vegetables, juicy steak kabobs, and savory barbecue ribs. Fun, right?
Wrong! And you know it all too well.
We’ve often talked about how missing teeth and ill-fitting dentures can lead to a nutritionally deficient diet. But let’s not forget those times when you have to steer clear of all that delicious summer holiday fare just because you can’t chew as easily as you used to.
Dental implants and implant-supported dentures allow you to enjoy the foods you love again. You not only feel confident because of your improved appearance, but you feel confident eating foods that require more bite force. Dental implants bring more to the table with their strength and durability, which means you can bring more to your plate at the next summer cookout!
Maintain Good Oral Health With Dental Implants
When it comes to your oral hygiene routine, dealing with empty spaces or removable dentures can not only be a hassle, but it can be difficult to keep your teeth and gums thoroughly clean. That’s one of the reasons dental implants and implant-supported dentures make it easier to maintain a higher quality of oral health.
With a full-set of teeth, it’s so much easier to brush and floss just like you would with your natural teeth. Because we lead such busy lives, the more complicated and involved it is to maintain something, the more tempting it is to neglect that responsibility. Dental implants allow you to follow a consistent oral regimen much more easily, which is beneficial to your periodontal health.
