Tooth loss is one of the most devastating dental problems you could face, especially at a time like this! With Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away, it’s only natural for people with missing teeth to feel reminded of that burden.
Now is the time of year to look forward to a delightful smorgasbord lining the dinner table. Now is the time of year to take in every wonderful moment you have with family and friends you don’t often get to see.
It’s not the time to lament about another holiday filled with worry, stress, and insecurity because of your missing teeth or poorly-fitted dentures. It’s not the time to settle for another plate of soft food while those around you eat whatever they want. It’s not the time to think of new ways to avoid being in all those family photos and group selfies.
Thanks to our team at Shook Dental Care, you don’t have to worry about that! Dr. Shook is a highly-skilled dentist who houses the latest in dental technology to provide you with the best tooth replacement option for your smile.
One of those options is implant-retained dentures. With dentures that are secure and natural-looking, you can save your Thanksgiving experience. Today, we’re devoting the blog to explaining just how our dentures can make that happen!
The Stability Of Implant-Retained Dentures
Traditional dentures certainly have their place, but when it comes to stability, the better option in tooth replacement is implant-retained dentures. That’s because with dental implants strategically placed as the foundation of your dentures, you have a stronger set of teeth overall. The implants anchor the dentures in a way that adhesives can’t because implants fuse to your own bone.
How Can Implant-Retained Dentures Save Thanksgiving?
With implant-retained dentures, you can enjoy other advantages as well, especially during a holiday like Thanksgiving! Here are some common benefits of stable dentures:
You’ll Have A Stronger Bite
Removable dentures can become loose over time, or can be poorly-fitted to begin with. They also rely on adhesives, which sometimes means you can risk certain foods that you might really love to eat but that demand a lot of strength from your teeth to tear and chew. Implant-retained dentures allow you to comfortably and confidently eat what you love with a much stronger bite!
You’ll Have More Nutritional Options
Just like you can’t eat all the foods you enjoy, you also risk not getting proper nutrition. With missing teeth or unreliable dentures, you’re going to stick with softer food, maybe food that’s even bland and boring, and food that might not be nutritionally adequate.
You’ll Have More Confidence
You can eat with confidence thanks to implant-retained dentures, but you can also smile with confidence, too! Think of all the people you’ll get to spend time with on Thanksgiving. You don’t want to spend the whole time dodging a camera! You’ll want to talk, catch up, laugh, and just enjoy the company.
A healthy set of teeth will give you the confidence to capture as many memories as you can this year!
You’ll Protect Your Remaining Teeth
Tooth loss can have a profound impact on your health, and not just that of your teeth and gums. Missing teeth, given enough time, will only lead to bone deterioration and more tooth loss.
Implant-retained dentures can protect you from that by giving you the ability to keep the jaw engaging, healthy, and strong enough to support the surrounding structures.

You deserve to soak up every single special moment of the Thanksgiving holiday. That means loading your plate with delicious food and smiling for pictures with the family and friends you love.
