AM I TOO OLD TO HAVE IMPLANTS?

Age is not a factor for dental implant success. Bone healing around dental implants occurs with equal success in patients in their 8th decade of life as it does in their 4th! The only thing to stand in the way of dental implant treatment in the elderly is general medical health. Your Marchwood dentist can discuss this with you at your consultation.

 

CAN I REPLACE MY DENTURES WITH IMPLANTS?

Yes, you can and it will change your life. Dentures are a common, low-cost tooth replacement option that serve many people well. However, with advancements in dental technology and comfortable tooth replacement options becoming more accessible, many people are making the switch from dentures to implants.

Our patients are often curious about dental implants after discovering that dentures are more trouble than they’re worth. Here are some common reasons why people switch from dentures to implants and why dental implants are considered the “gold standard” of teeth replacement options?

With dental implants you avoid the pain and embarrassment of dentures.

  • Your teeth will not slide around or fall out. Dental implants are securely fitted to your mouth, which means you will avoid embarrassing situations due to dentures loosening, falling out, or clicking.
  • You won’t need to avoid any activities.
  • You won’t need to worry about what you eat.
  • There are no metal clasps around your teeth or plastic covering the roof of your
  • Dentures place constant pressure on your jaws, which can cause painful sores to develop.
  • Dentures do not stimulate bone growth, leading to bone loss in your jaw. This compromises your facial structure, collapses your cheeks and changes the positioning of your chin over time. Dental implantsactually help prevent bone loss by anchoring to the jaw bone and simulating bone preservation like natural teeth.
  • Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. They are a permanent solution compared to dentures or bridges.
  • Dentures need to be removed at night, requiring constant cleaning and maintenance. Dental implants are simply easier to care for!

 

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY DENTAL IMPLANTS AND NEW TEETH?

Once your new implants and the surrounding gum have healed, and your replacement teeth have been fitted, they must be cared for in the same way as normal, natural teeth. Brushing twice daily with a soft-bristled brush, using dental floss and using a low abrasive toothpaste will ensure that your dental implants last as long as they should and will prevent any further oral health problems. And, just as natural teeth can develop gum disease leading to the loss of the supporting bone over time, dental implants can develop a similar pattern of gradual bone loss if they are not kept clean with a good oral hygiene routine.

In severe cases, this can lead to implant failure. So, it is important to understand that you need to commit to looking after your new teeth if you want your investment to last and to enjoy all the benefits of your restored teeth.
