If you have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to replace your missing teeth with dental implants in Dallas, this is it! Summer is a great time to start your journey to a complete smile. You can still enjoy the warmer weather and soak up the sunshine while investing in a permanent solution to treat your tooth loss. Here are 5 reasons to invest in dental implants before fall.
1. More Flexibility in Your Schedule
Replacing a tooth with a dental implant requires a multi-step treatment process that can take several months to complete. Since life tends to slow down during the summer, you will have more flexibility in your schedule to maintain frequent dental appointments.
2. Plenty of Time to Recover
The first phase of your treatment will involve surgically inserting an implant post into your jawbone to replicate the root. As with any surgery, you can expect a short recovery. You can use your vacation days to accommodate your recovery without having to miss work. You will have the time you need to allow your mouth to heal without the stress of running back to the office.
3. Spend Time Enjoying Summer
Your dentist will recommend taking it easy for 1 to 2 weeks, which means you can still lay out by the pool or work on your tan at the beach. You won’t have to worry about boredom because you can enjoy many of your favorite summer activities, like catching up on your favorite Netflix shows or reading a good book.
4. Plenty of Cool Treats
You will have to eat softer foods while your mouth heals. Thankfully, there are plenty of soft, cool treats to keep you nourished, like yogurt and smoothies. You’ll stay cool while enjoying your seasonal favorites. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and promote a quicker recovery.
5. Your Dental Benefits Haven’t Expired
Your dental insurance will reset at the end of the year, which means there’s still time to use your coverage. On average, less than 3% of people meet or exceed their annual limits, so you likely have several remaining. Although it is unlikely your dental insurance will cover the entire cost, you can use your policy to offset the fees for certain steps in your treatment plan, like the consultation, preparatory procedures, or restorations. Your dentist will help you maximize your benefits to lower the amount you will pay out-of-pocket.
You can look and feel your best for summer by restoring a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile you’ll be proud of. Don’t miss your chance to invest in the most successful method of treating tooth loss.
