For most Americans, Thanksgiving represents a special time to gather with friends and family and to express thanks for our many blessings. A huge Thanksgiving feast of turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce and sweet potato casserole is also part of the Thanksgiving tradition for many families. This is the time when we set our tables with our best linens and china, turn off our cell phones and other electronics, and enjoy a long, relaxing meal around the table. However, if you are dealing with ill-fitting, loose or uncomfortable dentures, Thanksgiving dinner may not be all that enjoyable to you.
Dentures that slip or fall out easily can make it very difficult to enjoy a meal, especially when the meal involves a group. Even if it is with your family members, the last thing you want is for your dentures to fall into your dinner plate! In addition, loose or uncomfortable dentures can make it difficult to chew and properly digest certain foods.
If you notice that your dentures have recently become loose, ill-fitting or uncomfortable, it could be due to changes with the bone in your jaw. When pressure is not exerted on the jawbone on a regular basis, it can cause bone loss. This in turn can make dentures that at one time fit well, not fit well anymore. It is a vicious cycle.
You can break the cycle of ill-fitting dentures with dental implants. Dental implants are a revolutionary tooth replacement solution that provide for replacement teeth that look, function and feel like natural teeth. There a a variety of tooth replacement options that can be used with dental implants including dental-implant-supported crowns, bridges and dentures.
If you are tired of worrying about your dentures slipping or falling out or if your dentures have become uncomfortable, talk to your dentist today about dental implants. After a thorough evaluation, your dentist can determine if you are a candidate for this life-changing dental procedure.
