Embarking on the teeth replacement process this winter means you will have the rest of 2019 – including Colorado's iconic summer season – to look forward to with a complete smile. Missing teeth affect your smile, your bite and your dental wellness. Restoring your teeth with dental implants in time for summer means you can get back to enjoying the things you love, without the discomfort caused by missing teeth. Please learn more below about the benefits of getting the process started now.
Avoid Dental Discomfort and Problems Caused by Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can put a damper on your summer fun. Find out if dental implants are the right way to accomplish your dental goals, so that you can avoid the common problems associated with missing teeth:
- Uncomfortable bite. The gaps caused by missing teeth can be uncomfortable. The tissue itself may be irritated, or you may experience discomfort or aching when you bite down.
- Shifting teeth. Although it doesn't happen instantly, your teeth will begin to tilt because of the gaps left by missing teeth. When all teeth are present and properly aligned, they retain one another's position. Tooth loss allows neighboring teeth to drift.
- Smile aesthetics. Feel good about your smile when you replace missing teeth. Embarrassment about the gaps can cause you to withhold your smile and laughter, which is never a good feeling. Our dentists are passionate about creating smiles our patients love.
Depending on the type of implants chosen, the process may take several weeks from consultation to final results. Opting to begin the process now means you will have the rest of 2019 to look forward to, with a complete smile.
Sensational Summer Cookouts
In backyards across Aurora and Denver, summer cookouts are the norm. Barbecues may be one of the most relevant reasons to restore your teeth before summer. Missing teeth makes chewing difficult. You need your front teeth to bite foods, while the back teeth chew food for easier digestion. Perhaps you have noticed discomfort during meals, or that you have been avoiding certain foods like apples, steak or raw carrots.
Although each person's timeline will vary with scheduling constraints and particulars of the procedure, implant dentistry results will be ready by summertime if the implants are placed now or in the months ahead. You will be able to eat all of your favorite foods once everything has healed.
Get Back Into the Activities You Love, Confidently
While summer activities like hiking, camping, swimming, fishing and all the other fun we love to have in Colorado are not directly affected by whether you are missing teeth or not, you may not feel motivated to engage in such pursuits if you are unhappy, depressed or sad about your smile. It is normal to experience such emotions when you do not like your smile, and when you are experiencing dental discomfort or difficulty eating all the foods you like. Eventually, such emotions may deter you from hobbies and interests.
The good news is that dental implants may be the right way to restore positive feelings in relation to your teeth and oral health. Some people experience a lift in self-esteem and quality of life once their teeth have been restored. You deserve to feel great about your smile, and we can help you decide if now is the right time for dental implants.
