Age And Dental Implants

If your natural teeth are not quite how you would like them – whether this is due to tooth staining, uneven shape or even tooth decay – then dental implants could be your answer.

But can your age preclude you from having dental implants?

The older generation

Nowadays, people are living longer than ever before and as such, we see a number of missing teeth in the mouths of our older generation, caused by things such as decay and gum disease – things that often affected them earlier on in life.

And even when missing teeth have been replaced with dentures rather than dental implants, dental implants could still be an option for you.

As long as you are healthy and can undergo routine dental procedures, including extractions, then you will be a good candidate for dental implants. It will also go in your favour if you don’t smoke, or have quit, and practice good dental hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing regularly.

Other reasons that may preclude you from having dental implants, include:

  • Ongoing cancer treatment
  • Drug abuse
  • Psychiatric treatment (medications)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Bleeding disorders including haemophilia
  • Heart issues
  • Hypothyroidism

Even if you have lost some bone due to missing teeth and it has started to degrade, you can still qualify to have dental implants. Here at EvoDental, we offer a revolutionised concept in dental implants that works, even when jawbone has significantly degraded.

Our EvoSolution treatment, is particularly useful for people living with challenging dental issues, as we only need between 5mm – 10mm of bone in an even spread throughout the jaw, to be able to fix permanent teeth in just one day of treatment – as long as it is a full jaw treatment.  

It’s never too old to get dental implants and they can be life-changing, whether you’re 50 or 80. Giving you back the ability to eat properly, speak properly and, of course, to smile properly, they really can make the world of difference.

Here at EVODental, our EvoSolution ensures you get a smile in a day using dental implants, which are also an ideal alternative to dentures and dental bridges. As an advanced alternative to all-on-four dental implants, our EvoSolution involves adding further two implants in the nasalus, zygomatic and pterygoid areas, depending on your individual needs.

Benefits of dental implants

There are a number of long-term, significant benefits to be gained from dental implants, both functional and socioeconomic aspects, and can be a cost-effective alternative to conventional treatments:

  • They look and act like normal teeth
  • There are no restrictions to the kind of food you can enjoy
  • There will be no damage to any remaining teeth you may decide to keep
  • They are cost-effective
  • A confident smile
