If you are a senior living in the Fort Worth, Texas area and seek dental implants or a crown replacement for an existing dental implant, you should reach out to Dr. Spencer Hoyt and the Fort Worth Dental Arts team. Dr. Hoyt would love to welcome you into his practice to look at an existing dental implant and crown. And if you are considering this tooth replacement option but are in your later years, you should be thrilled to hear that dental implants are an excellent choice for seniors also!
Because they are physically inserted into your jawbone, dental implants are considered the most durable and long-lasting tooth replacement option currently available. You may only need a single implant to replace a tooth or multiple implants to support an appliance such as an implant-supported denture. Dental implants are incredibly durable, and this long-lasting durability is partly because the implant fuses to the jawbone through osseointegration. When this fusion occurs, the implant becomes very firmly held in place as it has become part of the jaw itself. Implanted teeth will hold firm in place and not wiggle or shift. You should not feel any discomfort when talking, eating, or doing any other activity where your teeth are required. A dental implant feels completely natural and will be one less thing seniors need to worry about.
Durability = Affordability
Once your dental implants are in place and have fully fused to the jawbone, you should not have any ongoing costs as you might with other tooth replacement options. An example of this would be a broken or lost denture.
The strength of a dental implant means you do not have to worry about the dental implant moving or rocking while you are eating. You can eat without the tooth shifting like a denture can shift when you are chewing. It is physically impossible to lose, as it is physically fused into your mouth. Dentures can also become ill-fitting over time. Dental implants may not be the most affordable option upfront, but there are minimal costs associated with them after the implantation procedure is completed. The crown attached to the implant may need to be replaced at some point. Dental implants can also need to be replaced with time, however, if done correctly, they have very good long-term success rates.
