Am I too Old to Get Dental Implants?

As we increasingly live longer, active and higher-quality lives, we want our smile to look as good as we feel, and a commonly asked question is, “Am I too old to get dental implants?”  The short answer is NO, as the truth is that dental implants have a role for people of all ages.

Dental implants are a natural-looking, durable and secure solution to damaged or missing teeth. They are also an ideal alternative to partial dentures or bridges for multiple tooth replacement. No matter your age, it is never too early or late to get the smile you desire, and dental implants can transform both your appearance and your oral health, and can have a strong positive impact on a person’s smile and quality of life.

Larger numbers of patients in their 80s and 90s are increasingly opting for dental implants instead of cosmetic dentures because they are more secure, comfortable and natural looking. While traditional dentures often shift or slip, causing eating and speaking difficulties, dental implants never shift due to their secure placement. This security allows you to eat, speak and smile with confidence.

Messy glues and pastes are used to hold dentures in place, but dental implants are placed directly into the jaw bone using a post made of sturdy titanium. This means you won’t have to struggle with adhesives or worry about your teeth moving during a conversation or meal.

Cosmetic dentures also can make people look older than they actually are. Dental implants are a far more natural looking alternative because they are directly placed into the jaw bones. Cosmetic dentures rest directly on the gums often creating a receding gum line. This unsightly problem is eliminated entirely with dental implants. They look and feel so natural that dental implant patients who are 45, 65 or 85, often forget they even have them, and no one can tell the difference between dental implants and your natural teeth.

As long as you are healthy, patients of any age can safely have dental implants and can enjoy many years of a healthy vibrant smile. Discuss options and review the advice provided by Prosthodontists in your area. It is never too late to improve your smile, and dental implants are an ideal solution for patients of all ages…read more
