Dental Implants St Charles IL“All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth, my two front teeth, my two front teeth.” Who doesn’t love a good Christmas song? It lifts our Christmas spirit, and we get excited for hot cocoa, presents and spending time with family. But we are sure you will agree with us when we say that missing two front teeth wouldn’t be something you would be singing about.
 
A missing tooth can make you feel self conscious, and we don’t want a missing tooth to put a damper on your holiday festivities. So, why not look forward to getting dental implants? While a complete implant procedure can’t be performed before Christmas, it can be a present to think about for the New Year! There are many advantages to getting dental implants.
 

Dental Implant Benefits

In St. Charles, dental implants are a popular dental request. It offers multiple benefits—some you can’t get with other options, such as dentures and bridges. Check out the list below, and see if you don’t jump for joy.
  • Mimics natural tooth – your family and friends won’t notice the difference between the implanted tooth and the surrounding teeth, as long as you don’t tell them. We can keep a secret!
  • Slip resistant – an implant is safely secured in the jawbone. No slip of the teeth or tongue. Eat and speak with confidence.
  • Permanent placement – you don’t need to buy denture solution or anything like that. Dental implants are permanently placed in the jawbone.
  • High-success rate – the body accepts biocompatible material, so your body will be less likely to reject the implant and synthetic tooth.
 
All you need to do is properly care for your teeth and gums because a healthy mouth will allow the implants to last a long time, even a lifetime.
 
For dental implants in St. Charles, talk to your St. Charles dentists at St. Charles Family Dentistry. We are excited for Christmas! How about you? Let us know in the comments. We appreciate the feedback.

It’s December already?? This year has really flown by! December is always a busy time of year and that holds true here at St. Charles Family Dentistry. This weekend is our staff Holiday Party at Drs. Ed and Lynn’s house. I am certain it will be a great time, and everyone is really looking forward to it. Next weekend is the final installment of Dr. Ed’s Advanced Orthodontics lecture series. This will be the sixth time that doctors from across the nation will visit our office to listen to Dr. Ed. It has been a great lecture series, and we are very thankful to all the patients and staff who have helped make it a success!

Just a reminder that for the second year, SCFD is a collection site for Toys for Tots. We are offering a free fluoride varnish for patients who bring in a new, unwrapped toy. Be sure to take advantage of this great offer and great opportunity to give to a wonderful charity.

Do you have a difficult person to shop for on your holiday list? Well consider a gift certificate to St. Charles Family Dentistry. The gift certificate can be used for tooth whitening, oral hygiene products like the Oral-B Power Brush, or any dental service. Give the gift of a bright, healthy smile this holiday season!

Everyone at SCFD is thankful for our great team, wonderful families, and the best patients in the World! Happy Holidays from all of us!
