Dental Implants for Geriatric Patients
When it comes to tooth implants, your overall health and your oral hygiene habits are more important than your age.
Seniors who make ideal candidates for tooth implants:
- Have healthy gum tissue
- Have enough bone density to support the tooth implant
- Are able to take care of tooth implants (the same way you take care of your own natural teeth)
- Are able to have regular dental checkups
- Do not smoke

Dental Implants vs. Dentures for Senior Citizens
Thanks to advances in medicine and dental technology more and more seniors are living longer, healthier lives.
Many older patients choose tooth implants over dentures because dental implants look, feel and function more like natural teeth. Adapting to partial or full dentures is a significant change and can be especially difficult for those with memory problems or decreased cognitive function.
However, dentures do cost less than implants (especially in the short-term) and modern dentures can look quite natural. Compare the cost and benefits of tooth implants vs. dentures or contact Ross Dental for expert advice from an experienced dentist!
