According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans aged 90 and older has tripled since 1980, reaching 1.9 million in 2010, and is expected to increase to 7.6 million over the next 40 years. You can bet many of those nonagenarians will tell you that a happy outlook on life helped them live so long. And with that happy outlook, of course, comes a willingness to share a smile. But after 90 some years of smiling, what happens if there’s tooth loss? Are dentures the only answer? No. Research shows that dental implants are effective at restoring missing teeth in elderly patients and have the same predictable outcomes as when used to replace teeth in younger patients. For old and young alike in 07090, dental implants are expertly provided by Dr. David Weinman in Westfield, NJ.
