It is the most plentiful time of the year. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and families all around the country are already preparing for the bountiful feasts that are sure to fill up tables and bellies alike.
Stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, turkey, and above them all, desserts are on everyone’s mind. However, if you have teeth implants, you may have some concerns regarding what you can and can’t eat.
Last month, we discussed some of the big do’s and don’ts when it came to approaching Halloween with dental implants. Here are some of our tips for eating a Thanksgiving supper with dental implants and why teeth implants can be something to be thankful for this year.
What Foods Should Be Avoided?
The short answer to this question is: None of them. If you have dental implants you have what could be considered a normal set of teeth in your mouth.
With teeth implants in place during the holidays you are free to enjoy all of your favorite treats and dishes. So go ahead, indulge in that extra serving of mashed potatoes, or cut off an extra piece of Pecan Pie.
The holidays can be a nightmare if you have poor dental hygiene. With missing teeth or jaw-bone deterioration, the joy of the holidays can easily be sucked out when you find yourself struggling to get through your family favorites.
Unlike dentures, where you have to be aware of the things that go into your mouth, you don’t have to worry about embarrassing moments with teeth implants. All you have to do is smile, serve, chew, and enjoy your family this holiday season.
Forget Denture Cleaning This Holiday Season
When you have to live your life with dentures, there are a lot of obstacles that have to be overcome, especially during this holiday’s season. Thanksgiving is all about being with family and grazing on food throughout the day. Yes, there is one big meal, but let’s face it, we are all really in it for the leftover snacking later that night.
With dentures, you can still snack but there is an extremely high risk of getting your lovely Thanksgiving snack can get caught underneath and either ruin your gums or even worse, create a bad odor that will surely put a damper on your evening.
With dental implants you don’t have to worry about snacking or having food implant itself into your gums. When you have teeth implant surgery, you are essentially ensuring that all of the hassle that comes with dentures and missing teeth go away.
In order to maintain your new smile, all you have to do is brush and floss regularly, like you would with a natural set of teeth.
