I have to say the current dentist I’ve seen most recently here at CIFD has been professional, welcoming, detail oriented,.. He made me feel comfortable and offered open communication right away by letting me know that I can contact him directly with any concerns. Which has been a very positive experience compared to other dentists I’ve seen before.The office staff has been great as far as scheduling appointments, following up with reminders of upcoming needed care, always professional and courteous. They’re actually very patient with me even though I tend to miss, cancel, and reschedule often. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the dental treatment and care I’ve received here. I recommend.(My grandmother actually sent me here a few years ago before she passed away. She received her dental care here and spoke very highly of her dentist.)

Very clean and friendly staff! The wait time was very long and the result of me waiting so long made me come back later because it was lunch time and the doctors were gone. Also the lady that did my x-rays wasn’t sure of what she was doing she kept asking for help from other staff and made it longer as well.

Dental Implants for Seniors

Dentistry is advancing every day, however, millions of patients suffer tooth loss, mostly because of tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. Missing teeth could lead to loss of bone, drifting of teeth, misalignment, inability to chew, pronounce words, etc. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. But today, dental implants are available.

What are dental implants for Seniors?

Dental Extraction

Implants are artificial dental roots made of biocompatible titanium and used as screws or cylinders, which are surgically inserted into the maxillofacial bone and attached to it through a process of osseointegration that lasts two to three months. Dental implants act in the same way as natural roots, becoming a stable base for artificial replacement teeth. Once the union is achieved, the abutment is placed, and then the artificial tooth.

Tradition

dental implants

Traditionally, fixed bridges, braces, or dentures were used as a solution to replace missing teeth. Today, dentists offer dental implants as a permanent solution to replace missing teeth because they do not need adhesives and do not require anchoring to healthy teeth.A dental implant can support neighboring teeth without depending on them or putting pressure on them.

Who are implants for?

It is indicated for all those who have suffered tooth or molar loss and who want to replace them while maintaining the advantages of a natural tooth. Their success lies in the similarity they have with the original teeth, in their long durability and in that, frequently, they aesthetically improve the appearance of existing teeth.

Avoid problems with chewing

Avoid problems with chewing and movement of the teeth. When we are missing a tooth, the rest of the teeth may try to reposition themselves to fill the existing gap. When the bone does not receive the stimulus produced by the tooth when chewing, it causes a loss of thickness and height.

What advantages do implants offer?

implants
  • It is a conservative procedure. It is unnecessary to cut or adjust the teeth next to the tooth that is being replaced. This technique prevents further injury.
  • They can be placed on any patient. Dental implants are suitable for many people, even for young people who have already completed their growth and who, for some reason, have lost one or more teeth; it is only necessary to check the state of oral health to rule out cavities or any another disease.
  • Increases the patient’s self-esteem. Placing a tooth identical to the original allows you to smile, speak, and chew without problems. Not only does your smile improve, but it restores the quality of life.
  • They do not need special care. The implant’s hygiene is the same as that of a normal tooth.  You only need to brush daily. It is also necessary to have periodic check-ups with the dentist to check the good health and ensure that the implant lasts forever.
