It’s Never Too Late for Dental Implants

An important part of our practice is about educating patients so that they fully understand the work that is being performed and what they hope to expect as a reasonable outcome. Beyond this, we want our patients to become raving fans of our work and spread the word to others who may have a similar need. Dental implants are a great example of a service we provide that provides dramatic life-changing benefits to individuals, no matter what age they may be.

A recent anecdote really hammered this home. A client who had had a very tricky set of dental implants installed was so thrilled with the work that she made a habit of telling everyone she knew about it. Her raving reviews generated new patients for years to come. She was a wonderful lady, and the dental implants had really changed her life for the better.

Then, after 5 years, she realized that perhaps the same could help her husband who had been suffering with complete tooth loss for years. A full set of dentures impacted every meal he ate. He had been too embarrassed to remove them to eat during family dinners, so would pick away at whatever bits of food he could while keeping the dentures in. Now, why did his wife, not refer him sooner? Simple. She was under the impression that dental implants were only for those who were missing some teeth, not all of them.

Situations like this occur all the time. Dental implants can benefit individuals of all ages with varying degrees of tooth loss. If you or someone you know is struggling with dentures or tooth loss then dental implants may be the solution. It’s never too late!
