Too Old for Mini Implants? I am a 76 year young senior who lost my teeth when I was 40 years old.
I had bone construction about 10 years ago and am now having problems keeping my lower teeth in. Much difficulty chewing.
Is it possible to have implants for a person my age? I realize the bone deteriation and the expense for someone in my situation, but there must be answers somewhere out there.
I retired and still a very active senior citizen. ...Visitor from MI
You are never too old to have implants and an improved quality of life!
The limiting factors are the quality and quantity of bone you have, and your finances. I am sure you can get consultations from dentists in your area who are well versed in implantology that can give you costs, and discuss your particular situation.
Improperly fitting teeth can lead to digestive problems, loss of proper nutrition, sore mouths, and decreased quality of life.
Implants can be done to adhere to dentures via balls, bars and profile prostheses (screwed in partials). Find a dentist who can review options, costs, sequencing your treatment and give you back some teeth and chewing ability.
