Many senior citizens wonder if they’re eligible for dental implant therapy, and if they can even afford it. The good news is that almost anyone, including seniors, can get dental implants– and it’s affordable!
As a specialist in dental implants, I help many senior citizens restore failing teeth so they can live fuller, healthier lives. I often consult with patients who are over age 65 who are concerned that they are not eligible for dental implant treatment, and in many cases, I’m able to successfully restore their teeth.
The combination of my extensive training and expertise, along with with the latest technologies we use at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry, allows me to treat a wide variety of senior patients with dental implant therapy.
Dentures vs. Dental Implants for Senior Citizens
Many patients over 65 have dentures. Often, these dentures can be uncomfortable, and they don’t provide strong tooth structures to chew healthy foods and maintain a balanced diet. Patients have to replace dentures more frequently, which becomes costly over time.
Dental implants are often a better, more stable solution for many senior citizen patients. People are living longer and healthier than ever today, and having strong and stable teeth are an important part of our quality of life. With the modern technology we use, we can create permanent dental implants so you have natural looking and feeling teeth.
Am I Too Old for Dental Implants?
Many senior citizen patients worry that they’re too old for dental implant therapy. In many cases, they’ve had extensive dental work that has failed, and are concerned they don’t have enough left to work with to get stable dental implants.
Not to worry! I can help. I’ve worked with many patients who have been told that they can’t have stable, natural looking and feeling implants and they have given up hope. In most cases, we’re able to find a solution to get them to a healthier, happier place. It’s important to come in for a full evaluation and consultation so we can discuss your dental implant options.
Affordable Dental Implants for Seniors
Many of my senior citizen patients worry about being able to afford dental implant treatment. Our office offers a variety of payment options, and most patients can find an option that works for their lifestyle.
If you’re senior with failing teeth, you’re no stranger to dental costs. Sometimes a shorter term option like dentures can be less expensive right away; however, when you look at the costs of replacement over just a few years, a more permanent stable solution can be more cost-effective in the longer term. Strong dental implants can help you keep a healthier mouth overall, and avoid dental complications and associated costs of them.
I enjoy working with senior citizen patients who need dental implants because I see what a difference it makes in their overall health and quality of life.
We always offer complimentary consultations, and we’d love to give you a full evaluation to see if dental implants are right for you.
