Summertime is here! That means school is out, the sun is shining, and long days by the pool are beckoning. Usually, you look forward to this time of year. If you have lost teeth, though, you might not be feeling as enthusiastic. Perhaps you’re feeling self-conscious that your friends or family will notice or judge your condition. Maybe you don’t want to go to that backyard barbecue because you don’t know what you could eat while you’re there. Whatever the reason for your hesitation, dental implants can help! Keep reading to learn four reasons why summer is the perfect time of year for this dental treatment.
Reason #1- Stop Feeling Self-Conscious
Having gaps from lost teeth is enough to make anyone feel self-conscious about their smile! Who wants to fully participate in group activities or family photos when they feel so completely flawed? Dental implants can be customized to match your natural teeth so once they are in place there is no noticeable difference. Your smile will be whole again with no one the wiser! By getting dental implants this summer, you can enjoy quality time with your loved ones without feeling like you need to hold back.
Reason #2- More Flexible Schedule
Because school is out for the summer, our schedules tend to be more open than it is throughout the rest of the year. That means there’s no better time than now to schedule your dental implant procedure! You have ample time for the surgery itself, as well as for the necessary recovery without feeling as pressed to get right back to the office.
Reason #3- Cool Summer Treats
After the dental implant procedure, your dentist will provide you with dietary restrictions you’ll have to follow for a few days in order to recover. Typically, they will have you stick with a cool liquid diet which means you’ll have to avoid any hot foods or beverages. Summer comes with a parade of various cool treats to enjoy like blended fruit smoothies, cold soups, and yogurt. You’ll be able to heal from your surgery with some of your favorite treats of the season.
Reason #4- Act Naturally
One of the greatest perks to dental implants over other treatments (like dentures) is that once you have healed, you no longer have to worry about restricted diets or adjusting to new hardware in your mouth. The rod in the implant acts like the root of a natural tooth and fuses to the jawbone. That means you can eat and speak normally without worrying that your dental work is going to slip out of place! You can confidently partake in all the activities you usually would and have a perfect smile to show for photos.
As you can see, there are clear advantages to getting your dental implant this summer. Call your dentist today so that you can kick back and relax for the remainder of the season knowing that you are well on your way to the smile of your dreams!
