The holidays are quickly approaching and you still haven’t done anything about those missing teeth, have you? Are you ready to go to the holiday parties, see old friends, and savor foods that are only served during this season? If your answer is no, we want you to know that it’s not too late to get the help you need when it comes to tooth replacement. We don’t want you to miss out on time with Aunt Nancy, drinks with your old next-door-neighbor Brian, or even have to pass up the homemade caramels that your sister makes each year. Good teeth means confidence, and this is the time when you need it most.
Need An Implant?
Dental implants are the way to go when it comes to replacing a tooth or two that you have lost. They are strong, sturdy, and will look and feel as real and natural as the teeth you were born with. However, you might be putting it off because you believe that the recovery time from having an implant done will cut into your holiday festivities. Yes, having dental implants done is considered to be a surgical procedure, but what about mini implants?
Less Invasive; Faster Recovery
Mini implants are the answer to those who don’t want to go through a whole surgical procedure so close to the holidays, but still want to get a new tooth. Mini implants are just as their name implies; they are smaller than standard implants, but just as strong. They usually only require a mild anesthetic, meaning that you won’t need to go under or suffer from the fog of general anesthesia. Since they are small, they heal quicker, meaning that you can have your implants done and be ready to take on the Christmas Eve extravaganza at your cousin’s house.
Helps With Dentures, Too
Of course, mini implants are ideal to help stabilize your dentures when they begin to loosen up, as they certainly will over time. You can be in and out of the dental office the same day in just a short amount of time with dentures that fit like the day you first got them. Imagine enjoying all of the flavors of the season, from hot cocoa to fudge, without having to pray that your dentures stay put. Your speech will be clearer, your dentures will look more natural, and best of all, no more pastes or gels to secure them!
