Overview: With seniors living longer with more productive and social lives, they don’t want to be slowed down or carry the stigma of being old by having dentures. Read the blog below as Vlad explains the benefits of dental implants for seniors.

 

Lifestyle

Nowadays senior citizens are enjoying higher living standards and far more healthy and energetic lives - they are quite the social creatures! Even with great oral care sometimes teeth naturally break down or start to fall out due to a variety of reasons. With their new healthy lifestyles, many seniors don’t want to be slowed down with the slow pace of dentures and often choosing dental implants can be a great solution to this problem. This is not to say that dentures are not a good solution for tooth replacement, but dental implants can offer more active seniors greater stability and freedom.

 

 

Dental Implants

Unfortunately, dentures can actually make people seem older than they are. The high level of maintenance that dentures require can make the senior lifestyle bit of a drag! For example, travelling can be difficult when wearing dentures. You have to remember to pack those messy denture pastes, as well as making sure your dentures don't dry out or even fall out! These are all are headaches that seniors in 2014 no longer have the time for. Dental implants are a perfect compliment to the modern social senior.

 

Safe & Sound

Unlike removable dentures, dental implants have titanium posts that are fused into the jaw and have new teeth anchored at the bottom of the posts. Once the titanium posts are fused into the bone, there is a small waiting period before the teeth are attached to the anchor, which allows the jawbone to settle and fuse with the post. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth or even a full set; either way you will have your million dollar smile restored! Vlad has applied his education and years of experience to perfecting the procedure at his Future Smiles Clinic. Dental implants are becoming more common, not just with seniors but with people of all ages, because they provide a long-term solution. With the popularity of dental implants on the rise, the procedure is continually improving and is very safe.

 

Financing

Future Smiles Denturist Vlad offers a variety of financing options so that seniors can budget for any procedure and receive their new dental implants immediately. By visiting Vlad at his Future Smiles Clinic in Mission or at his Senior Wellness meetings called “Coffee With Vlad,” the denturist will explain how dental implants are extremely cost effective over the long run.

 

Some of the ongoing costs of dentures include:

 

  • Repairing damaged dentures
  • Realignment
  • Denture pastes
  • Denture cleaning products
  • Replacement
  • Your time!

 

Dental implants can curb all the concerns people have with dentures. They will still require daily brushing and flossing, but that’s just the routine we’ve all grown up with!

 

 

Bottom Line:

If you’re a senior that’s always on the go and dentures are just slowing you down, it’s time to visit the Future Smiles Denture Clinic in Mission, Calgary, AB and ask Vlad how dental implants can keep up with your new lifestyle.
