Postmenopausal women and women with osteoporosis are at a greater risk of losing their teeth as they age. It’s common for women to require tooth loss treatment as they get older, but a recent study supports that dental implant surgery has been the treatment method able to provide women with the highest degree of satisfaction. Of the 900 women with osteoporosis and tooth loss that were surveyed, those with dental implants reported the highest satisfaction with their social, professional, and sex lives post-surgery.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The metal anchors act as the tooth post and the jaw bone bonds with the titanium to create a strong foundation for the artificial teeth that are placed over top. Implants are able to help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration from missing teeth. Once the implants are in place, they will serve you well for many years to come with the proper oral hygiene.
