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