As you get older, you may have the desire to replace your missing teeth with dental implants to improve your smile and bite. Luckily, dental implants are effective no matter what your age so, no – you can’t be too old for dental implants.
With people living to 90 years old and beyond, more older people are coming forward to get dental implants. If there have been years of tooth decay or gum disease, this can cause the teeth to become loose and fall out. Whilst historically older people have opted for removable dentures to replace their teeth, dental implants are becoming more popular due to the lack of maintenance required and their natural look. Patients often complain that dentures are annoying and can feel uncomfortable when they become loose, they can also irritate the gums causing sores.
Your social life shouldn’t suffer due to problems with your teeth that can be resolved by a dental implant specialist. Throw away the dentures and invest in permanent implants that just need to be brushed and flossed like your natural teeth! No more worrying about loose or unnatural looking dentures.
Whilst dental implants are suitable for older people, recovery time can be longer from the surgery which is to be expected. It is due to this that we wait 4 months to place the teeth for elderly patients, compared to 3 months for younger patients. Despite this, success rates in younger and older people are the same.
Treat yourself to a smile you can be proud of and book a free consultation to find out everything you need to know about dental implants.Back to Blog
