Who Can Have Dental Implants?

Posted by Dr. Maulik Nanavati on Dec 13, 2018 8:33:00 AM

While you may think dental implants might only be for older people, there are many, many people who make good candidates for this option.

It actually has more to do with your health than your age.

The ideal candidate for dental implants is in good general and oral health. You should have adequate bone in your jaw to support the implant, and you should also have healthy gum tissue that is free of periodontal disease.

Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissue and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are the dental experts who specialize in precisely these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant team. Not only do periodontists have experience working with other dental professionals, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities that you need to have teeth that look and feel just like your own.

Be sure to consult with your dentist if you need a recommendation.
