Do you feel like you need some time to learn all that you can about dental implants, think about your options, and make up your mind? If you would like to think for a while and consider how you feel about making this choice to replace your teeth, we want you to know that we understand. Rather than rush into placing implants, creating your pros and cons list, talking to loved ones, or simply asking us your many questions can be beneficial. Allow us to offer up a few reasons why this is the case.
Reason #1: They Become Permanent
Dental implants will essentially become permanent – and not something we can simply go in and remove from your smile. Why? Well, the posts bond with your jawbone. This process, called osseointegration, results in your jaw tissue and the implant fusing into one entity. If you prefer a fixed replacement that can later be removed, you may need to reconsider your choices.
Reason #2: They Require An Investment
As you have likely heard, the investment for dental implants is a sound one. This tooth replacement solution offers you extraordinary benefits and the implants will likely last the rest of your life (which means investing in them will become quite cost-effective). However, a budget is a budget. While we will be glad to discuss payment options, making a decision you are comfortable with is the priority.
Reason #3: You Will Need A Proactive Attitude
Yes, it is very easy to feel motivated and proactive for a treatment that requires your energy for a single day. However, as you will learn about dental implants, they require your focus and dedication for as long as a year before you are fully recovered and the implants are restored. Ask yourself how you feel about the entire experience before getting on board.
