Am I Too Old for Dental Implants? |, , ,

If you’ve never replaced a missing tooth or have been wearing removable dentures for several years, you may be wondering if getting dental implants is still an option. Rest assured that no patient is too old for dental implants.

Did I wait too long to get dental implants?

Although the complexity of the case is unique to each patient, the answer is almost always a resounding ‘yes’. As long as there is enough bone left to insert a dental implant, it is never too late to reap the benefits of this extraordinary restorative solution.

Additionally, the need for proper nutrition and the ability to eat a wide variety of foods is a vital necessity at any age.  Dental implants can also restore lost confidence in older patients and increase their oral comfort tremendously.

Did you know that multiple dental implants can be placed in a single appointment, with 3D implant planning?

But what if I don’t have enough bone left to support a dental implant? Is it too late?

This is a common scenario for patients who have waited a long time before deciding on dental implants.

When the bone is not stimulated by the root of the tooth (either the tooth is missing or a removable denture is used), the bone begins to deteriorate and loses density over time because it no longer has work to do.

Most people know that a dental implant is a special titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. This post must be surrounded by healthy bone.

In many cases, a bone graft treatment comes to the rescue. It is the ideal treatment to help patients who have long lost their teeth. With the use of a bone graft, it is still possible to receive healthy and successful dental implants.

If the patient does indeed require a bone graft, then he, or she, may be able to complete the procedure on the same day as her implant surgery. To know if this is an option for you, we need to see you and the study of high-quality x-rays.
