Aging brings plenty of challenges, but one of the most surprising can be big changes to your oral health. It’s common for seniors to have missing teeth. Whether you’re dealing with broken, rotting, or lost teeth, these effects of aging can leave you with big gaps in your smile.
While dental implants are the preferred choice for people who have lost some teeth, they can have an expensive upfront cost. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry reports that the average cost of a single tooth implant can be expected to cost between $3,000 and $4,500. However, it is important to note that the fact that they can last for decades means that the cost of implants may not be much higher than other tooth-replacement choices in the long-run.
