Age Is No Barrier for Dental Implants

Most patients who get a dental implant are middle-aged or older, but that doesn’t mean younger people can’t get them, too. At Hales Parker Dental in Ladera Ranch CA, we have patients of all ages.

When it comes to age and dental implants, age is no barrier – almost. There is really only one exception: the ideal patient has a fully-formed jawbone, which helps to ensure the implant’s success.

An Implant Primer

If you are hearing about dental implants for the first time, we’ll give you the low-down here.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the patient’s jaw. In the following months the post  fuses with the bone, to become one with it. They are a part of your body, and strong enough to support one or more artificial teeth.

With implant-supported teeth you’ll have virtually normal biting and chewing power. You can eat the things you have always enjoyed, without worrying the artificial tooth will slip or come loose.

Dental implants, like those from Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch CA, have been hailed as one of the great advances of dentistry. People from Mission Viejo, Las Sorres, and San Juan Capistrano also come to our practice for complete cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Please call us to schedule an appointment today!
