In 2010, approximately 21% of adults aged 65 and over had no natural teeth (edentulous). Today most of the baby boomers are between the age of 50 and 68 and are becoming part of the adult mass that should be concerned about their dental health.
Baby boomers are commonly grouped as those born between (and including) 1946 and 1964, in Australia this accounts for approximately 5.5 million adults across the country. As we age our body and our health takes a toll. This is the same with your dental health; your teeth become a part of this ageing process and for those people who unfortunately find themselves with missing or severely damaged teeth- dental implants could be the solution for you.
Investing in your dental health
At City Smiles located in the Melbourne CBD we have acknowledged the ageing population and have lowered the cost for dental implants to provide a more affordable solution for your dental needs. You can now save $230 on our top of the line dental implant treatment, which means you can receive your implant fixture and crown for just $2950 per tooth. Savings of $230 could let you enjoy a night in the Melbourne CBD after treatment, could pay for tickets to a show in the city or a fine dining experience. With more money in your pocket and teeth in your mouth you can spend more time doing the things you love and smiling proudly while you do them!
The importance of replacing your missing teeth
It’s extremely important to replace your missing teeth because leaving them can cause your teeth to move which can lead to misalignment and more gaps between neighbouring teeth. Dental implants also provide strength and function to an otherwise compromised smile. By avoiding dental care for your missing tooth you could be allowing the shape of your face to alter which can lead to lost muscular support and in turn premature ageing. With the support of a dental implant we can maintain your muscles as well as jaw bone density which can also recover the appearance of your jaw.
Getting older should be exciting
As the baby boomer population ages, this should be an exciting time for the many Australians coming to the age of retirement, rest and relaxation. Poor dental health and missing teeth can affect the way you spend this time in your life. With dental implants you do not have to concern yourself with removing the cap for cleaning because the prosthetic tooth is securely fixed to the implant which is implanted into your jaw bone. Dental implants are the closest restorative treatment to actually having your natural teeth.
