Phoenix-area cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox at Desert Smiles in Glendale knows that seniors have distinct concerns when it comes to their teeth, mouth and gums.
For many people of retirement age, dental implants can provide a lasting and attractive solution.
Here are three reasons that seniors citizens often report that they are pleased with their dental implants.
Reason No. 1: Permanency. The vast majority of seniors who receive dental implants, whether the fix is for just one tooth or for several, report that implants look, feel and function just like healthy real teeth.
Reason No. 2: Applicability. Dental implants can solve a number of different teeth problems including cracked teeth, missing teeth, or worn-down teeth.
Reason No. 3: No more dentures. Although implants cost more than dentures, they also are more comfortable and require only the maintenance and care that you'd apply to real teeth. That means no more denture discomfort, slippage or adhesives.
While there is an array of cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments available that may benefit senior citizens, most dental implant patients report that the procedure is well worth the cost and that the results are unparalleled.
