Who can have implants?

Posted in Dental Implants, FAQs on .

Dental implants can be used as soon as jaw growth is complete.  Apart from this restriction, implants can provide an optimal solution for all age groups.  The basic requirements for successful dental implant treatment are a good general state of health, good periodontal health, and adequate bone quality and volume.

If there is inadequate bone, there are various ways of augmenting the bone to provide support for a dental implant.  Whether dental implants are the best solution in an individual case can only be determined by detailed examination and discussion with your dentist / periodontist.  If all the medical requirements are met, careful treatment planning by the dentist is also required if an optimal and long-lasting outcome is to be achieved.
