4 Reasons Why Summer is the Best Time to Invest in Dental Implants

Investing in a whole and healthy smile by replacing your missing teeth is a big decision to make, especially during summertime! You may expect that undergoing a treatment like getting dental implants will impede your ability to get the most out of the beautiful weather and planned vacations, but that’s actually not the case. Read on for four reasons why summertime is an excellent time to decide to invest in your smile.

1. Eat What You Want, When You Want

After you undergo dental implant surgery and get your restorations attached, you’ll be able to eat a much wider variety of foods, from mouth-watering steak to steamy crusty breads. That way, whether you’re enjoying the food on a beautiful cruise or visiting an area known for their cuisine, you’ll be able to take part in all of the tastings and savor the delicious new flavors!

2. Slow Facial Signs of Aging

Once teeth go missing, the jawbone deteriorates due to a lack of support and stimulation from the roots of the once-present teeth. As a result, many people notice that they develop sagging facial skin or hollow-looking cheeks, which are features often associated with aging. Because dental implants replace the root structure of teeth as well as their crowns, this process drastically slows, helping you maintain your youthful glow.

3. Smile with Greater Confidence

In addition to slowing signs of aging, dental implants also provide you with replacement teeth that don’t just look natural. They also feel lifelike and can restore up to 80% of your original bite power. This means that you won’t have to worry about unwanted and embarrassing slipping and shifting prosthetics each time you open and close your mouth while talking or chewing.

4. Take Advantage of Insurance Coverage

Most dental insurance plans have benefits that restart at the beginning of the new year, on January 1st. If yours is the same, starting your dental implant treatment in the summer will time it so you can submit claims to use up your remaining benefits, as well as some of your new benefits after your plan renews. While the entirety of dental implants typically isn’t covered by dental insurance benefits, some parts of the treatment are often at least partially covered.
