Upper age limit for dental implant treatment?

Last Updated June 19, 2019

The patient who is nearly 93 years old is scheduled for extraction of the unsalvagable upper bicuspid. He is fit and healthy, takes only 75 mg Aspirin. The patient does not want a gap and has most of his natural teeth still retained. I discussed all the options with him and he wishes implant borne restoration. X-ray shows ample bone. If he was 20 years younger I would not hesitate, but his age puts me off for implant treatment. Another option is cantilever bridge on the molar but it would require 2 unit pontic and I am not comfortable with this. Any thoughts?
