At Desert Smiles, which serves Glendale, Scottsdale and Phoenix, our implant dentist, Dr. Donald Wilcox, has the holidays in mind just like everyone else.
So Dr. Wilcox understands that with Thanksgiving turkey dinner coming up and all of the other treat-filled winter holiday celebrations that follow, you may be concerned about how your smile will fare, especially if you recently received or replaced a dental implant.
One thing you can count on with dental implants is that eating and drinking will be more natural and less cumbersome than these activities might be if you were wearing dentures, which can cause sensitivity and discomfort when foods or drinks are very hot, very cold, very hard or very sticky.
But that's not the only major benefit of dental implants. With today's technology, many patients also can undergo the procedure in just one or two visits, which means there may still be time for you to schedule a dental implant procedure if you were hoping to have it done before Christmas or New Year's Eve.
We can't imagine a better holiday gift for yourself than the ability to laugh, speak, eat and smile without feeling insecure about missing or damaged teeth.
When you're ready to explore how dental implants can greatly enhance your life, please call Desert Smiles to schedule your consultation with Dr. Wilcox, who was voted by his peers to be one of the "Top Dentists" in and around Phoenix, Glendale and Scottsdale: 602-978-1790.
