In general, most people between the ages of 18 and on up are good candidates to get implants. However, some circumstances may need careful consideration before proceeding. Here are a few of the most common circumstances:

  • People whose healing process has been compromised through certain chronic diseases or medications may find implant placement would need to be carefully considered and monitored.
