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
