With technological advancements and extensive research today, life expectancy has drastically increased and improved. However, this obvious benefit does not stop the decline in dental hygiene, due to new diseases and poor lifestyle choices at an all-time high. Dental care experts fortunately have plenty of options when it comes to providing solutions to people with poor oral health, one of them being dental implants. People who are advanced in age are typically known to become separated from society and social life, especially when they have dental problems. However, there is hope. One scientific study revealed that older men and women who had teeth improvements and implants revealed emotional, physical and sexual health. Dental implants not only thrive in younger patients, but are very effective in older people as well. It can assist in eating better, obtaining sufficient nutrition and keeping one active and social.
Other benefits of Dental Implants:
- Prevents accidental dislodging in teeth
- Protects jaw bone
- Prevents jaw bone loss
- Assisting in eating foods without restriction
- Implants have no extensions and denture flanges
Cost, Treatment and Recovery
Investing in dental implant solutions adds value and time to your life. Older or elderly patients may opt out of dental implants due to the increase in age, however these implants can provide relief, restoration and happiness. The most common treatment options you have when choosing dental implants are (1) place two to four implants to support removable devices which ensures stability, comfort and performance, and (2) place four to six implants that resemble natural teeth which provides the ultimate level of comfort. After your dentist performs the procedure, you should expect to recover within three to five days. You will receive appropriate medication for the pain, sometimes obtain a fixed denture and allow about 3 months to completely heal your supportive set of new teeth.
