Age brings many changes to your physical appearance, including your smile. It’s not uncommon for seniors to lose natural teeth in their elderly years due to decay or dental disease. Tooth loss can lead to changes in your lifestyle, diet, and quality of life. The good news is that you don’t have to settle for the restrictions that tooth loss can cause. At the office of Greg G. Pitts DDS, American Fork, Utah, we can help you resolve tooth loss issues with full arch dental implants. Full arch implants will restore your smile, speech, eating ability, confidence, happiness, and more.
Implants are convenient for seniors as they’re more effective, stable, secure, versatile, and longer-lasting than any other restorative dental treatment for replacing lost teeth. All-on-4 dental implants can support an entire arch of teeth, making it possible to obtain a complete denture restoration for replacing all your teeth. Implant-supported dentures are more secure than traditional dentures, eliminating fears of your teeth shifting or falling out when you least expect it!
With dental implant treatment, you can count on:
Implants are also good for oral and overall health, a plus for seniors. They restore your bite, keep remaining teeth from shifting, and facilitate brushing, reducing your risk of dental problems like periodontal disease that can cause heart, kidney, and liver problems.
