With Dental Implants You Can Now Enjoy Your Favorite Holiday Delicacies

The holidays are the seasons where families and friends gather to have fun and share mouthwatering delicacies. It’s the times in the year when everyone brings out their secret recipe to share with family and friends. Some people however skip the delicious meals due to dental issues. For example, traditional dentures make it hard to bite and chew certain foods. When food gets underneath the denture it causes lots of discomfort. Such problems make it hard to enjoy the holiday and one might end up in the emergency room.

However, with the new developments in cosmetic dentistry Barrie, dental patients can now enjoy their holiday favorites without any discomfort or trips to the emergency room. The modern tooth replacement options offer improved functionality as well as a natural teeth appearance. With the natural look, you will feel more confident when chatting and sharing meals with family and friends.

Some of the modern solutions you will get include

Dental implants

Implants are used to replace one or several missing teeth. They are placed in the jawbone thus providing a more stable support. Once the dentures and bridges are mounted on the implants, they won’t shift or slip when you chew food or speak. Crowns placed over the implant also feel more natural; unlike they would with the traditional dentures.

When they were first introduced, dental implants were very expensive. However, the prices have gone down over the years making them affordable to most dental patients.

Denture plate

A denture plate combines the concept of implant technologies and traditional dentures so as to offer a more affordable solution for patients who don’t want to spend much on teeth replacement. The denture plate is held in place using implants. Denture plates are firm and tight and thus food cannot get underneath when one is chewing.

Benefits of dental implants and denture plates

With dental implants and denture plates, you can bite solid foods without issues. They improve the chew and bite abilities allowing you to enjoy your family’s great recipe on thanksgiving.


They also prevent loss of jaw bone density. Bone loss is a consequence of lost teeth that are not replaced. This happens because the jawbone is preserved by the pressure that comes from chewing. When a tooth is removed, the bone reabsorbs into the body. During the first year after tooth extraction, it is estimated that one looses 25% of bone.


With the modern teeth replacement options, you prevent sagging facial features. Missing teeth can cause the face to sag making one look older than they are. As such, if you just lost a tooth or two, talk to a cosmetic dentist about replacement options immediately before the skin begins to sag.


Denture plates and implants are some great solutions in dentistry that you can benefit from especially if you lost teeth. Treatment and recovery will depend on the individual’s dental health. Talk to a dentist and he or she will help you determine the best treatment option depending on your dental condition.

Our daughter was 5 weeks old when she had a frenectomy done at Molson Park Dental and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and end results. The entire team was so friendly and did such a wonderful job keeping me at ease during the procedure. Also, our daughter started nursing 100 times better immediately after the procedure was done. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to continue our breastfeeding journey pain free and allowing our daughter the ability to nurse efficiently :)
