Have you lost a couple of teeth over the years? Don’t spend another summer hiding your smile at pool parties or avoiding vacation pictures. Now is the perfect time to choose dental implants. As you spend time soaking up the sun, take a break to visit your dentist to treat your tooth loss before the end of the season. Here are 4 benefits of choosing dental implants this summer.
1. Look and Feel Your Best
Research shows if you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks, you likely to have low self-esteem. If you’re embarrassed by the gaps in your smile, you might struggle with social anxieties or avoid certain situations. Dental implants are a great way to look and feel your best to be more outgoing this summer. As a nearly perfect replica of your real teeth, you can give your confidence a boost knowing your smile looks and feels natural.
2. Enjoy Your Favorite Summer Meals
If you’ve lost several teeth, you’ve likely cut several foods from your diet because they became too hard to chew. You don’t have to skip steak, ribs, or corn on the cob anymore. Your dental implants are supported by your jawbone, so you’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation. You’ll regain as much as 70% of your natural biting force to indulge in all your summer favorites.
3. More Flexibility in Your Schedule
The process of getting dental implants can take several weeks to complete. Typically, you might not have time for multiple dental appointments or a recovery, but life tends to slow down during the summer. Instead of taking an expensive vacation, use your time off work to invest in dental implants. You’ll have the time in your day to visit your dentist while also relaxing during your recovery without needing to worry about heading back to the office.
4. You Still Have Dental Benefits
Although we’re already halfway through the year, you likely have several dental benefits remaining. On average, less than 3% of Americans meet or exceed their annual allowance. As a result, you can use your remaining coverage before it expires at the end of the year to offset the amount you’ll need to pay. While it’s unlikely your policy will cover the entire cost, you can use your annual allowance to lower the fees for certain steps in your treatment, like the consultation, tooth extractions, or restorations.
Achieve a Beautiful Smile
Dental implants are an excellent solution to enhance your confidence and improve your quality of life. After just a few weeks, you can enjoy permanent results to have an attractive smile you’ll want to show off.
