Are dental implants an option for anyone? Am I too old for dental implants?

Diagram of dental implant | Edmonton AB DentistAs long as you are medically healthy, dental implants can be an option for you. There is no age where you are too old for dental implants as long as you are healthy. Dental implants can be placed in any area of the mouth to replace any missing tooth as long as there is sufficient bone in the area. In cases where there is not enough bone, procedures can be done to grow more bone in the area prior to getting dental implants done.

Tooth Replacement Option

Dental implants are a very popular option for tooth replacement these days because they are usually the best way to replace your teeth most naturally. Compared to a bridge where adjacent teeth need to be modified, dental implants can be placed without any modifications on your adjacent teeth. Implants are also unable to develop cavities and do not ever need root canals.
