Why Summer Is More Fun With Dental Implants! [BLOG]

If you’ve suffered tooth loss, then no doubt this year’s 4th of July party wasn’t as enjoyable as summer barbecues used to be for you.

This particular season gives us an array of delicious food options that you can’t indulge in without a full set of strong, stable teeth. Crunchy, buttery corn-on-the-cob, grilled steak and vegetables, and barbecue ribs are staples of summer cookouts.

And let’s not forget about trying to have fun with family and friends when you’re constantly on guard about hiding the gaps in your smile.

That’s why your friends at Shook Dental Care want you to know about dental implants and why they make the best option for replacing missing teeth in San Pedro!

Dental Implants Offer You A Better Life

Here are some of the life-changing benefits of replacing your missing teeth with dental implants:

*No More Smile Insecurity*

What all social gatherings tend to have in common is a camera. Everyone has a smartphone these days, which means there is always plenty of opportunity to capture memories with a simple click of a button.

If you’re insecure about missing teeth, there is nothing fun about a photo op!

But dental implants lock down your stunningly lifelike replacement teeth tightly, so you never have to worry about an embarrassing smile again!

*No More Tooth Or Bone Loss*

The most significant feature that sets dental implants apart from other tooth replacement solutions is that they actually replace the root. What that means is your jawbone has something to attach itself to so it can stay strong and continue to grow.

That’s why the new tooth that’s attached to the top of the implant has more stability than if there weren’t an artificial root underneath.

Since an implant can stop the loss of mass in your jawbone, all your surrounding teeth are protected as well.
So in replacing your teeth with implants, you’re essentially ensuring better oral health over the long run!

*No More Unsightly Gaps*

A lost tooth leaves quite a large gap behind, but no matter how many teeth are missing, dental implants can be used to fill the empty spaces.

For one lost tooth, a dental implant and dental crown can be used as your replacement. Dental bridges can be attached to implants if you’re missing several teeth, and even dentures can be strategically secured with implants if you need a full arch of teeth replaced.

The point is, with dental implants, you have options to fill unsightly gaps and complete your smile.
