Are you missing teeth, but think you’re too old for dental implants? Find out why a dental implant is ideal at any age.

The Time and Place for a Dental Implant

Today, any one of any age can get a dental implant to feel better about their smile. As a result, this tooth replacement solution is helping people of all ages improve their appearance, dental health, and quality of life. In fact, people in their 80s and 90s are able to heal just as well as much younger patients after the procedure. Even patients with bone loss who once weren’t eligible for treatment are now able to get a dental implant due to advances in bone grafting. And while dental implants originally took many months to complete, it’s now possible to receive same day dental implants.

How Dentures Differ from a Dental Implant

Long ago, the only option for tooth replacement was a bulky pair of dentures. People soon discovered that they were very uncomfortable, often slipped during wear, and made chewing and talking a challenge. But once dentists started to realize that dentures can cause irreversible damage to the jawbone and inhibit a patient’s chewing ability, dentures started to be avoided and older patients soon discovered the dental implant. With a dental implant, patients can maintain an attractive, healthy and functional smile. While the cost of dental implants is typically higher than dentures, the beauty and benefits of the treatment make dental implant costs well worth it. If cost is a concern, many dentists can help ease dental implant costs by accepting insurance or dental discount plans like DS Plan.

The Benefits of a Dental Implant

Thanks to the rise of the dental implant, older patients have a lot to gain from this advanced dental treatment, such as:

  • An improved appearance and greater confidence
  • Ease and enjoyment when eating
  • Proper nutrition because chewing is more comfortable
  • Protection from tooth shifting because the dental implant fills in the gaps between teeth
  • Jawbone preservation since no damage is done by conventional dentures
  • Even though the cost of dental implants may be more than other options, they can ultimately save patients from the painful and pricey dental damage that dentures tend to cause
  • A fast and easy way to replace missing teeth, especially with the option of same day dental implants
  • A better, stronger, healthier smile at any age
