Dental Implants for Seniors that will Complete Your Smile and Prevent Bone Loss and Other Complications

Affordable Dental Implants for Seniors in La Crescenta CA Area

Despite your best efforts to care for your teeth, sometimes tooth loss is unavoidable due to age, wear and tear, or injury. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers numerous restorative treatments for replacing missing teeth, so you don’t have to do without. Seniors who prefer a natural, permanent solution to restore their smile should consider dental implants. Implants are ideal for seniors who don’t want the trouble of caring for removable prosthetics. At Bright Smiles Dental Studio, La Crescenta, California, we offer affordable dental implants for seniors interested in obtaining this treatment.

Can You Be Too Old for Implants?

As a senior, you may wonder, are you too old for implants? The answer is an emphatic “No!” You can benefit just as much from implants as younger individuals. In fact, implants will improve your quality of life in your golden years as your replacement teeth will look, function, and feel like natural teeth and be just as easy to care for as natural teeth. Implants require no special treatment other than routine brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleaning to maintain their attractive appearance. Through dental implants, seniors gain the comfort, natural appearance, and functional capabilities of real teeth.

Key Advantages of Implants for Seniors

Implants are a permanent means of replacing lost teeth as they’re surgically embedded into the jaw and topped with a crown to act as your replacement tooth. This keeps your teeth from shifting when you eat, laugh, or speak. Implants also offer additional benefits in the form of:

  • Facial support to prevent sagging – Implants act as tooth roots to prevent bone loss, keeping your jaw and face from sagging
  • Improved health due to fewer diet restrictions – Implants function like natural teeth, enabling you to eat healthy foods without worrying about endangering your teeth.
  • Restored speech – Implants restore your ability to speak clearly.
  • Greater confidence to smile with ease – Implants complete your smile to restore its natural appeal so you can smile confidently and easily. Implants restore your confidence to socialize with friends, dine out with loved ones, and even pose for pictures once again.

Dental Implants Recovery

Dental implants aren’t a quick fix for replacing lost teeth. The process may take up to six months to complete. Once the surgery is completed, you’ll have to wait for the implant to integrate into your system and fully heal before a crown is attached to complete your treatment.

Most patients require a few days of rest after the initial surgery to allow gum swelling and tenderness to subside. You’ll need to follow a soft-food diet during the next few weeks while your gums heal. Smoking should be avoided during recovery as it could lead to gum infection. After your gums have fully recovered and the implants have been assimilated into your system, we’ll put crowns on top to act as replacement teeth. This completes your treatment.
