When most people think about our Laguna Woods implants they imagine younger people with healthy beautiful smiles thanks to our veneers and other cosmetic dentistry applications. However, these procedures work just as well in older adults.

There’s really no reason why an older patient can’t get the full benefit of our single stage dental implants or one of the other varieties that we offer. Age is only a factor in children and teenagers but not older people unless they have a history of smoking or some types of diabetes.


Implant Advantages

Laguna Woods implantsOne of the advantages to our Laguna Woods implants is the simple fact that older people can eat a wider range of food. That allows them to stay healthier for longer periods of time and enjoy the meals they might otherwise miss with dentures or missing teeth.

We are very careful here at 7 Day Dental about how we proceed with your dental implants in Laguna Woods.  We start all of our procedures with an initial consultation so everyone understands the best method to proceed forward.


Dental History

During this initial process, we will get to understand your dental history and what options are best for the implants that you are looking for. It’s important to keep in mind that for older adults getting their right kind of dental implants is as much about maintaining your health as your social activity.

People who take the time to visit our office and follow through with the procedures find they have the self-confidence to be able to interact in social situations. They are able to relate with friends and family and in public without being self-conscious about their dentures slipping or any other shortcomings associated with denture use.


Bone Loss

Even with the bone loss that is commonly associated with getting older, these implants can be fitted and enjoyed for years to come after the procedure. Dental implants also help to preserve the jaw bone all and steer away from any of the bone loss that can be associated with dentures.
