Did you know over 500,000 people each year choose dental implants to replace their missing teeth? A dental implant is unlike any other treatment because it replicates both the root and crown, so you can enjoy the next best thing to your real tooth. Although you can invest in a complete smile at any time, here are 4 reasons summer is the ideal opportunity to choose dental implants.
1. More flexibility in your schedule.
Let’s face it, life is busy. Thankfully, you tend to have more free time during the summer. With the kids home from school and time off work, you have more flexibility in your schedule. Instead of using your vacation days to take a lavish trip, you can use your time off for your recovery. You can lay out by the pool and relax while your mouth heals without worrying about rushing back to the office.
2. Your dental insurance hasn’t expired.
Your dental insurance is a monthly investment that allows you to enjoy reduced rates for specific services. Did you know less than 3% of Americans meet their annual limits? Instead of throwing money down the drain, you can use your remaining coverage before it expires to treat your missing teeth. Although your dental insurance won’t pay the entire amount of the treatment, your policy can offset the cost for certain steps in the process, like the consultation, tooth extractions, or restorations. Your dentist will help you maximize your benefits to keep a complete smile within your budget.
3. Invest in a confident future.
Research shows people who don’t like the appearance of their smile often struggle with low self-esteem. If your missing teeth are preventing you from feeling your best, you can invest in a confident future with dental implants. After just a few weeks, you’ll have a beautiful, complete smile that will make you look younger, professional, and intelligent. Your dental implants will look and feel natural, so you’ll be proud to show off your new teeth.
4. Reduce your oral health expenses.
You can lose as much as 25% of your jawbone’s density within the first year of losing a tooth. As your bone deteriorates, you’ll have a heightened risk of additional dental issues, like cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss. A dental implant replaces the root of your tooth to stop bone loss in your jaw. You’ll save money down the road by avoiding many common issues associated with missing teeth.
