Nowadays people are living longer due to improvements in healthcare, medicine and nutrition. However many of the older generation have already lost teeth due to previous tooth decay and gum disease. This results in difficulty chewing and eating and can have a negative impact on the quality of life. Denture wearers will know that chewing can be incredibly painful due to dentures moving around.
The fact is no age is too old for dental implants. Healing after implant surgery is generally swift. There is commonly 2-3 days of discomfort after the surgery however having an implant placed is normally faster and easier than having a tooth extracted. Even if teeth have been missing for many years, a highly skilled dental implant surgeon can place implants that will give you many years of improved quality of life.
Dental Implants should always be a treatment option for patients to consider. Especially if alternative options are dentures and Dental bridges.
