Do you wonder if you are too old for dental implants? Dr Rachel Hall of Evolve Dental dental implants dentist Kenmore explains about dental implants, what age you can get them and what the benefits of dental implants are.

Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Are you struggling with missing teeth? Fortunately, gaps in your smile can be a thing of the past thanks to several different tooth replacement options out there to choose from. One of the most popular options is dental implants because of their numerous benefits. However, many patients worry that they are too old to get a dental implant.

Kenmore Implant Dentist Answers What Is the Best Age To Get An Implant

You may be surprised to learn that age is not a barrier to getting a dental implant. Dental implants can benefit people of any age as long as the jawbone has completed developing, which usually happens in your early 20s.

Your age isn’t something that is generally considered when it comes to being a good candidate for implants. Instead, your dentist at Evolve Kenmore looks at your health history, gum health, and the integrity of your jawbone. If all of those things appear to be in good shape, you are likely to be a good candidate for an implant.

So the answer is if you are in good general health, non-smoker, with healthy gums and solid bone structure to place the implant into then you are not too old to get a dental implant placed.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants have all sorts of benefits. Here are just some of the things that make them such a popular choice:

  • Prevents bone loss: Implants are the only tooth replacement option out there that preserves the integrity of the jawbone. The titanium or ceramic implant is placed directly into the bone in order to replace the root of the missing tooth which makes it feel and act like a tooth when you chew.
  • Easy maintenance: You don’t need to stock up on any adhesives or cleaning tablets like you do with dentures. Instead, you just care for your implants how you would care for your natural teeth. Just brush, floss, rinse, and see your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.
  • Zero eating restrictions: Implants are placed directly into the jawbone, so they are more stable than other tooth replacement options. Once they have finished healing, they can restore up to 90% of your natural chewing power. Eating your favorite foods won’t be a struggle at all!
  • Long-lasting: Implants can last upwards of 25 years and even the rest of your life with proper care. You may never have to worry about your missing teeth ever again!

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean that you have to rule out dental implants as a tooth replacement option. Instead, discuss the possibility of an implant with us at Evolve Kenmore Dentist. This way, you can find the best way to restore your smile to health!
