Dentistry for Diabetics 3 | Monroe, LA - Bayou Dental Group

Are your missing teeth or slippery dentures threatening to spoil your Thanksgiving fun?

Our team at Bayou Dental Group wants to keep that from happening! That’s why we’re telling you about non-removable teeth replacement options available in our Monroe, LA dental office.

You don’t have to let tooth loss affect you this season. With strong, secure implant dentures, you can enjoy the holidays to the fullest with a complete, beautiful, and confident smile!

Tooth Loss Makes Eating More Difficult

One of the best parts about any holiday is the food. Thanksgiving is at the top of the list when it comes to delectable dishes!

But without a full set of strong, healthy teeth, eating becomes a chore. You might have to chew on one side of your mouth to avoid pain and discomfort. You might shy away from certain foods that require more bite power to tear and chew easily.

On a holiday like Thanksgiving, restricting yourself when it’s time to fill your plate is the last thing you should have to do!

Tooth Loss Can Threaten Your Health

Losing a tooth as an adult is a far cry from the exciting rite of passage you experienced when you lost teeth during childhood. You can’t sit around and wait for a new tooth to come in, which leaves an empty space in your mouth where harmful bacteria love to thrive.

As an adult, losing a tooth can start a domino effect of more tooth loss if you don’t get it replaced. If given enough time, bacteria can take hold of those dark, empty spaces and lead to the spread of gum disease and other health problems.

Tooth Loss Steals Your Confidence

If you’re missing one or more teeth, it’s a huge blow to your confidence. You worry about letting down your guard while socializing with family and friends. You’re plagued with feelings of self-doubt and insecurity.

You feel unattractive. You feel ashamed. You fear others will notice all the gaps in your smile and judge you about the state of your oral health.

This is no way to live on any day of the week, let alone a holiday!

Tooth Loss Steals Your Smile

This is perhaps the most difficult issue you face because of tooth loss. Your smile is incomplete. Unlike the other ways missing teeth affects your life, this is something everyone around you can see.

During the holidays when cameras are flashing and group selfies are being immediately shared on social media, you become too preoccupied with your unsightly smile and how to hide it to happily join in the memory capturing.

Enjoy The Holiday With Secure Replacement Teeth

Removable dentures are an effective replacement option for many patients who’ve been affected by tooth loss. That’s why they’re still used today in dental offices around the country.

But if you’re looking for a more secure option, Dr. Finley can help!

While dentures have their place, they come with limitations that can affect your quality of life. Kept in place with adhesives, dentures make you more vulnerable to embarrassing moments.

They can move around while you’re eating, speaking, or laughing. This can fill you with stress and anxiety, especially around the holidays. You’re no doubt going to be surrounded by a lot of people, and feeling insecure about slippery dentures can put a dark cloud over your holiday experience.

At Bayou Dental Group, you can take advantage of our All-On-4 or All-On-6 Implants. These are non-removable options that anchor your upper or lower replacement teeth with four or six dental implants.

Unlike traditional dentures, they give you the kind of stability no other tooth replacement option can. That’s because the dental implants fuse to your jawbone and operate like a synthetic root. This keeps your jawbone engaged, healthy, and strong.

Dentures secured with dental implants can benefit you in several ways:

-You can care for them easily with brushing and flossing.

-You can eat the foods you love without fear of slips.

-You can keep your jawbone healthy.

-You can preserve the stability of your facial structure.

-You can have a complete, natural-looking smile!

Take a moment to consider how these benefits might turn your holiday experience around.

Instead of anxiety about slippery dentures, you can eat what you want and chew with comfort and confidence. Instead of insecurity about your missing teeth, you can smile for family photos knowing you look as good as you feel!
