Dental Implant Age Restrictions
If you are thinking you are too old for implants, check out out this video about dental implant age restrictions by our Buffalo dental implant doctor.
If I had to guess one of the barriers to trying to convince a patient that a dental implant will be the best way to restore a tooth or replace a missing tooth it would be age. Many older patients will tell me, “I’m not going to be around for that much longer,” or “Why am I going to invest this kind of money into saving my mouth?”
After sitting down and talking with them about all the benefits about keeping their teeth or replacing missing teeth, I try to reiterate to them that there’s really no age limit to receiving a dental implant. As long as a patient is in general good health and is taking care of their mouth, I recommend treatment to any age.
