The Top 10 Things You Should Know Before Getting Dental Implants

Every day I meet with patients who desperately want dental implants but they are afraid to take the first step. They are afraid it’s going to hurt. They are afraid it’s going to take too long. They are afraid to miss work, and they are just plain scared to death that it’s going to cost too much.

Have you ever considered the cost of living the rest of your life with bad teeth or dentures?

Just the other day, I was talking with a friend who went on a “blind date” with a nice young man who is interested in her. And… she liked him, but his teeth were awful and she said, “it just took that shine off the whole romance thing.” No matter how much she tried, she couldn’t help but notice how often he hid his smile with his hand while he was talking or laughing. And that got me thinking… just how big of an effect do teeth have on our lives? I mean no one is going to tell us to our face, “Hey Mike, you’re a really nice person, but your teeth stink.” So, I did a bit of research and to my amazement, here’s what I found :

Scientists have found that the human eye can judge a crooked smile in less than one-half of one second. We make our first impression within 4 seconds of meeting a new person. People with beautiful smiles are judged to be happier, healthier, more successful, more educated, and even kinder than they are judged in identical photographs with “computer simulated” crooked smiles. It’s not surprising that having bad teeth or bad dentures means you have a much smaller chance of making a good first impression. Additionally, denture repairs, relines and replacements can cost tens of thousands of dollars over a lifetime.

If you’re worried about making a good first impression or you simply want to avoid bad teeth for the rest of your life, you must find out THE SECRET TO A PERFECT SMILE. It’s going to completely change your outlook on meeting new people, going out to dinner, applying for a new job or smiling confidently in photos.
