Who Is A Candidate?
Almost everyone who is missing any or all teeth is a candidate for Dental Implants. Dental Implants can be placed in younger patients as soon as the jaw is no longer growing, and there is no upper age limit. The deciding factor is that there is enough good healthy bone in which to place the Dental Implant. Some clinical conditions or other factors such as smoking, diabetes, alcohol consumption or uncontrolled periodontal disease, may interfere with the integration process and long term success.
