Are you looking forward to sharing holiday meals with family and friends? Or, does the thought of sitting down for a meal with others give you instant anxiety because of your fear that your dentures will slip or simply fall out? If dentures are taking the joy out of sharing meals with those you love, it is time to do something about it.

Dental implants offer a fixed, permanent solution to missing teeth that allow for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. By investing in dental implants, you can eliminate the constant worry that your dentures will slip or fall out during meals and other social interactions. You can actually look forward to eating again! You can also eliminate the hassle and expense involved in buying messy denture creams. Best of all, you will be the only one who knows that you have them. Dental implants are so natural in appearance and comfortable to wear, you may even forget that you have them!

If the cost of dental implants is a major deterrent, it is important to consider the return on your investment. How much are you willing to pay for a dramatically improved quality of life? You have taken care of everyone else in your family, isn’t it time to take care of yourself? Many oral surgery offices offer attractive financing options and/or in-house payment plans. Isn’t it worth it to find out? Maybe this year is the time to give yourself the gift of a new set of teeth!

Another new year is just around the corner. Before you know it, you will be toasting with friends and singing Auld Lang Syne once again. Is losing weight on your list of resolutions once again this year? If you resolved to lose weight last year and did not quite achieve your goal, you are not alone. Every year, thousands of Americans resolve to lose weight and improve their overall health only to find that the end of the year has come and they are still struggling with extra pounds. In fact, overweight and obesity has become a health crisis in the United States. This is especially dangerous because being overweight or obese increases your risks for a number of serious diseases and medical conditions including heart disease, Diabetes, breast cancer and more.

So, what is the best way to achieve your weight loss goals? The simple answer is to eat healthier and to exercise more. However, if you are currently wearing dentures, the solution may not be quite as simple. That is because wearing dentures can make it hard to eat certain foods. Foods like vegetables, fruits and whole grains that are rich in fiber and other important nutrients and lower in calories can be hard to properly chew and digest for patients who wear dentures. They are then forced to replace these foods with softer, more processed foods that are easier to chew and digest. Unfortunately, these foods are often higher in calories and lack the fiber and nutrients that are needed to maintain good overall health.

The good news is that there is a great alternative to dentures that allows you to eat the foods that you want to eat: dental implants. With dental implants, you do not have to eliminate any foods from your diet. You can eat a healthy, well-balanced diet that will help you achieve your weight loss goals and maintain a healthy body weight. If you are currently wearing dentures, talk to an oral surgeon today to see if you are a candidate for this revolutionary tooth replacement system. Happy New Year!
