SUITABILITY

If you are healthy enough to have a tooth taken out, you are probably healthy enough to have a dental implant placed.

There is no maximum age limit to who can receive a dental implant, as long as you are passed puberty.

Patients with the following medical conditions must be carefully evaluated to determine his or her suitability for dental implants:

  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Steroid therapy
  • Connective tissue disorders
  • Bisphosphonate therapy
