I am a senior. Can I still have dental implants?
Seniors are living longer than ever these days and staying more active. In fact, in their senior years, many people find them selves starting a new career or looking to start a new romance. Just because you’re a senior does not mean you need to stay at home and age. In fact, seniors today like to travel, work, meet new people, stay active, and be with the people they care about.
That is why we recommend dental implants for healthy patients of all ages. In your senior years, isn’t it more important than ever to eat the foods you love and live life to the fullest. In fact, nutrition is vitally important as we age, so being able to eat all of the delicious healthy foods will keep you in tiptop shape.
Dental implants are still the most reliable tooth replacement option for patients who are healthy enough to receive them. They are easy to take care of, look great, and are the option closest to your natural tooth. Not only do they complete your chewing surface, but they also help you to retain your jawbone because they anchor to your bone, just like a natural tooth.
No matter what age you are, we encourage you to consider dental implants as a tooth replacement option for today’s busy seniors.
