Are Dental Implants the Right Solution for You?
In Florida, approximately 67% of residents are living with at least one missing tooth. A problem with your teeth can impact several areas of your life, no matter your age. A gap in your smile can seriously affect everything from your self-esteem to your diet.
This is why investing in a long-term solution like a dental implant is often the best solution when replacing your lost teeth.
Implants may be right for you if you:
- One or more teeth are missing
- Are Struggling with an uncomfortable or ill-fitting denture
- Need to replace your entire set of teeth in one day
- Do not want a traditional bridge or partial replacement
- Want the longest-lasting type of restorative solution you can get
- Need to preserve the strength and stability of your remaining healthy teeth
Am I Too Old / Young for Dental Implants?
At Affordable Dentures & Implants in Miami Lakes, we see various dental implant patients, and age is not a limiting factor. We like to say that whether you’re 18 or 98, we have an implant option for you.
Some of our patients are in their early 20s and need a tooth replacement due to sports-related injuries. Another example may be a person in their mid-40s who feels embarrassed to smile while missing a tooth. We even see elderly patients in their 70s and 80s who want a denture that won’t constantly slip out of place. Our oldest patient to date just wanted to be able to steak again at 98 years old!
In other words, you’re not too young (or too old) to get dental implants. Almost anyone over the age of 18 is a candidate, provided they are in generally good health.
“My last dentist said I wasn’t a candidate for implants. Can I get a second opinion?”
We are always available for second opinions. We often see patients who have been told that they are not suitable implant candidates because of bone loss or a dental office not having the necessary resources to conduct the proper procedures to make the implants successful.
At Affordable Dentures & Implants, Miami Lake, we are able to treat those who might not have been eligible for implants otherwise. You can even get a free second opinion from us!
