Good news: It’s still January. The year is still fresh and new. If you were thinking toward the end of 2018 that you should really get the ball rolling when it comes to tooth replacement but here you are and you still haven’t called us to set up a visit, no problem! You’ve still got about 11 and a half months to follow through! Of course, our Cerritos, CA team reminds you that the sooner you get started the better. Why, you wonder? Well, consider some reminders regarding why it’s a very wise choice to give yourself goals (and plenty of time).
Goals Are Essential
When you give yourself a goal, such as, “I’d like to finish with my tooth replacement treatment by the end of 2019,” you set a deadline. When you set a deadline, you leave the realm of fantasy and start dealing with reality. When you don’t set a goal, replacing missing teeth, learning about dental implants, bridges, and more can all remain something you dream about but not something you take action to achieve.
You Need Enough Time
Having a nice leisurely experience with tooth replacement is always much nicer than feeling pressed for time and rushed. Our team reminds you that there are multiple reasons you may want to give yourself a buffer of time as you begin this particular oral health adventure:
- First, you will want to be able to explore your options, from dental implants to bridges and more. You don’t want to feel rushed!
- Next, if you want dental implants, then remember that they generally require multiple months to a year until completion.
Completing Your Smile This Year Is Worth It
Why do we suggest taking advantage of this year in order to attain your smile completion goals? Well, it’s not all about comfort, convenience, and cosmetic details. Remember that replacing your missing teeth as soon as you can is also essential in your journey toward promoting your healthiest smile. Missing teeth encourage smile shifting, jaw deterioration (which you can prevent with implants), hygiene issues, etc. Avoid them by seeking care now.
