Every holiday has its own special perks, but they do all share one common thread of sugary delight… CANDY! And no holiday has the candy market licked quite like Halloween!
Just because you don’t trick-or-treat anymore doesn’t mean you don’t get just as excited about the season’s candy storm as the little ones. And why shouldn’t you? After all, you’ve earned it, right?
Maybe if you have a full set of healthy teeth! Without that, enjoying candy becomes a thing of the past. It’s one of life’s simple pleasures you gave up long ago.
Our team at Restorative & Implant Dentistry thinks you deserve to be in on all the Halloween fun. With dental implants from our Pompano Beach, FL office, your confident bite can be restored so you don’t have to let one more holiday pass by without enjoying all the delights of the season!
Today, we’re telling you about this phenomenal tooth replacement option and how it can help you revisit the Halloween excitement of your youth.
Dental Implants: Chew Candy With Confidence!
Missing a tooth, or several teeth, poses a problem that’s really twofold.
The first, and most obvious, problem is cosmetic. Let’s face it, of all the dental problems you can have, missing teeth is at the top of the list of worst case scenarios. It’s a tremendous blow to your self-esteem to have an unsightly smile.
An incomplete smile is something you’ll go out of your way to hide. It’s embarrassing and, as a result, a constant source of emotional stress. You might avoid getting together with friends. You’ll turn down party invitations, which can be tough this time of year. It’s only going to become more and more difficult after Halloween!
And you’re likely going to isolate yourself at work out of fear of feeling judged by others. Lunch starts to become a lonely ritual. Promotions? “Why bother?” you ask yourself. This all takes a huge toll on your emotional and psychological well-being.
The second part of the tooth loss problem is that it poses serious threats to your physical health, all of which begin in your mouth. An empty space is a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Once it’s had a chance to feed off of sugars, it creates plaque acids that attack your teeth and gums.
In addition to this damaging process, you also have the risk of losing bone mass because your jawbone along those empty spaces will deteriorate for lack of use. This only serves to compromise the structural integrity of the surrounding healthy teeth and bone. So ultimately, it’s true that tooth loss begets more tooth loss!
Opting out of tooth replacement will make you quite vulnerable to gum disease, the infection from which can get into your bloodstream and start a domino effect of health problems like diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
Dental implants put all of that destruction in reverse. By acting as an artificial root inside your jawbone, it will promote continued healthy bone growth and keep your teeth, gums, and facial structure strong. Not to mention the boost to your self-esteem from having a complete smile again!
Make Halloween Fun Again With Dental Implants!
Once a dental implant is placed, it’s covered by a natural-looking dental restoration. The look and function of your teeth will be restored for a confident, beautiful smile. Not only does this bring all kinds of benefits to your personal and professional life, but it’s invaluably beneficial for your overall health.
No tooth replacement option comes close to the success of dental implants. In fact, your bite power is restored almost to its natural strength, allowing you to chew and eat your favorite foods with confidence.
Did we mention that by food, we also mean candy? It’s true! Now, we know it sounds a little strange to hear this coming from a team of dental professionals, but candy is fine in moderation. And let’s face it, with missing teeth, you’ve probably abstained from candy long enough! A little extra sugar on Halloween is probably due, right?
