At What Age Can You Get Dental Implants


Posted on 10/15/2023 by Weo Admin
a 3D rendering of a dental implantDental implants are tiny titanium screws that are directly inserted within the patient's jawbone. They are an ideal solution for replacing teeth. Implants mimic your natural teeth' appearance, sensation, and function. Besides, they offer essential stimulation to the jawbone, keeping it strong and preserving its structure.

Many ask if they are too young or old to get dental implants. The truth is that age doesn't play a significant role in assessing your suitability for dental implants. But you must have better oral health and enough jawbone. Here you will learn the best age to undergo a dental implant procedure.

Am I Too Young to Get Dental Implants?


Before you get an implant, you must have attained skeletal maturity. This means your jawbone should have completed its growth phase without further spurting. Implanting teeth before puberty and while the jaw is still maturing can disrupt ongoing bone growth. This can jeopardize their resilience and lead to complications such as bite problems and bone loss. Typically, individuals under the age of 18, unless they have attained skeletal maturity, are not usually suitable candidates for dental implant placement.

Am I Too Old to Get Dental Implants?


There isn't an upper age limit for dental implants. Many patients fall between the ages of 50 and 70. You remain a suitable candidate for dental implants even in your 80s and 90s. Our practitioners will examine your oral and overall health before they proceed with the placement.

Dentists determine a person's eligibility for dental implants through a comprehensive assessment. They take scans and X-rays and address any concerns you may have before the procedure. If you are deemed a suitable candidate, the dental implant placement procedure is secure and successful, regardless of your age - even if you are 99 years old.
