dental implants age requirementMany people who would benefit greatly from dental implants are seniors, those suffering from bone loss, or both. Unfortunately, some assume that they aren’t good candidates for dental implants, believing that these conditions disqualify them. However, most people are, in fact, candidates for healthy dental implant placement, including seniors and those suffering from bone loss.

You’re Probably Not Too Old

Age is not nearly as important a factor in dental implant treatment as most believe it is. In fact, in-and-of-itself, age holds very little bearing on whether or not you qualify. The Dental Implant Place has successfully provided dental implants to patients 90 years of age and older!

Mini Implants Are Great For Bone Loss

Bone loss is a common problem for those seeking dental implants. When teeth are missing, the bone is no longer being stimulated and used the way it’s meant to be. This is frequently observed in denture wearers, but missing even one tooth can also contribute to or lead to this problem. Fortunately, for those with less bone, there are mini implants. With mini dental implants (or small diameter implants), people with less bone density can still qualify for dental implant treatment. This is because these implants have a significantly smaller width (i.e. diameter) and length than traditional implants and can thus provide a healthy, natural tooth root for those with narrower bone structure. Regardless of your bone structure, The Dental Implant Place likely has the size that is right for you, since we offer mini implants in addition to every other type and size of dental implant.
