Dental Implants for Elderly 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
- Can attend regular dental checkups
- Do not smoke
- Have enough bone density to support the tooth implant
- Can take care of tooth implants (the same way you take care of your own natural teeth)

Dental Implants vs. Dentures for Senior Citizens
Thanks to advances in medicine and dental technology many 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 us for expert advice from an experienced dentist!
