Are there any Age Limitations Related to Dental Implants?

One of the benefits of dental implants is that, whether you are 70, 80 or 90 you do not have to worry about being considered a poor candidate for dental implants because of your age. There are no upper age restrictions associated with implant dentistry. The only age restriction applies to younger patients whose jawbones are not fully developed yet.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Are you missing teeth?  Do you chew on one side of your mouth? 

Most commonly dental implants are used to replace missing teeth.  From protecting your oral health to preserving your bone and gums, the benefits include:

  • An implant is beneficial as it connects directly into your jaw bone. After tooth loss, the bone in that region will also diminish. By using titanium to replace the root a more secure bond is created which more accurately replicates the original tooth bond.  There is no need to damage an adjacent tooth or teeth to restore those that are missing.
  • The titanium implant will fix to the bone cells of the patient’s jaw and form a lasting bond and anchor the replacement tooth. This has a positive impact on the patient’s experience by offering greater comfort, stability and confidence as the implants look and feel just like your own teeth.
  • Implants are permanently fixed to the jaw which prevents the need to adjust a device such as a bridge or removable denture which may shift. This significantly aids the patient’s ability to speak without having to “work” to pronounce words.  In addition, a patient will retain their normal face shape and smile, adding to the patient’s confidence
  • With implants, patients can expect a return to normal eating habits and eating foods like nuts and fruits. Having the ability to eat, bite and enjoy your favorite foods without the possibility of having a device shift in the patient’s mouth, cannot be overrated.
  • With proper care, implants can last a lifetime making them a cost-effective solution.
  • Implants will help to protect the patient’s healthy surrounding teeth. Because the implant is securely attached to the jaw, there is no need to damage or grind the surrounding teeth to restore a missing tooth or teeth.  This helps protect the jawbone and prevents healthy adjacent teeth from shifting.
