Why a Dental Implant is Ideal at Any Age

If you’re an older adult, you may think it’s too late to get dental implants. Think again, because these dental wonders are now working wonders for people of all ages.

The Age of Dental Implants

There’s simply no age limit for getting a dental implant. 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 with advances in bone grafting. And while dental implants initially took many months to complete, it’s now possible to receive same day dental implants.

The Difference Between a Dental Implant and Dentures

At one time, dentures were the only tooth replacement treatment available. But they tended to be uncomfortable, slip throughout the day, and make it difficult to talk and eat. 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 implants 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 DentRite.

The Advantages 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 with 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
