It’s summer time again, and that means there are a lot of opportunities for showing off your smile in summer activity photographs. Remember this season with your best smile by looking into teeth replacement if you’ve recently lost teeth and preserve the smile you remember from last year’s photos. Of course, new dental implants will do more than just preserve your smile. They also make it easy to enjoy your favorite summer foods again, including ribs, corn on the cob, and other warm weather delicacies that challenge the teeth.
Dental Implants Are Your Most Advanced Option
While there is some patient concern about the cost of dental implants, it’s important to remember two things. The first is that the cost of implants has come down a lot, and the second is that more and more insurance companies are covering them. Even if you do have to go out of pocket, dental implants are a permanent solution that only costs slightly more than the alternatives, both of which have to be replaced regularly throughout the rest of the patient’s life.
Implants are also more rugged teeth replacement options than dentures or bridges. That’s because of the way they are built. They are anchored to the jaw with titanium anchors that support the architecture of the porcelain replacement teeth. Those teeth are rugged, and with the support under them, they can take on even the toughest foods.
