When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are in a class of their own! These awesome little implants can completely revitalize and restore the look, feel, and functionality of your smile—and they’re built to last. However, you might be wondering about the timeline for such an incredible treatment process; when is the best time to get dental implants, and why? Keep reading to learn about four huge benefits of beginning the dental implant process during the summertime.
1. There’s Plenty of Time in Your Schedule
Things tend to slow down during the summer, and many people enjoy a relaxed schedule filled with extra PTO days and longer weekends. Even though it’s always nice to relax during the summertime, it’s also an excellent opportunity to recover from receiving dental implants! Since your implant sites can take months to heal properly, utilizing your summer downtime to heal up can ensure that your recovery goes smoothly and is ultimately stress-free.
2. You Can Enjoy Cool Summertime Treats
During your recovery period, you’ll need to adhere to a soft food diet to ensure that your implant sites don’t sustain any additional damage. Fortunately, there are many summertime snacks and treats that fall under this category! Ice cream, yogurt, smoothies, and milkshakes are all excellent options during your recovery period; not to mention they can help cool you off during those hot summer days!
3. You’ll Take Advantage of Your Dental Benefits
If you have a dental insurance policy, you should already know that your benefits are set to expire at the end of the calendar year. Since summer is roughly halfway through the year, it’s an excellent opportunity to take advantage of your benefits and seek out treatment! Having coverage will make your implants more affordable, which contributes to an overall stress-free experience as you don’t have to worry and fuss about payment while you’re recovering.
4. You’ll Look Younger and Feel Healthier
Your teeth don’t just help you bite and chew; they also provide necessary stimulation to your jawbones! Without this stimulation, your jaws can prematurely deteriorate and cause all sorts of problems, including a lack of facial support! But dental implants restore missing teeth and return structure and fullness to your face. This makes you look (and feel) much younger, while also giving you a dazzling new set of pearly whites to show off just in time for the summer.
Talk with your dentist if you think dental implants are a viable treatment option for you. There are many benefits to receiving them, and summertime is a great time to get the ball rolling!
