Is There a Minimum Age for Dental Implants?

young couple | dental implant minimum ageDental Implants are an extremely popular choice for tooth replacement. It's a great option for people who are looking for a treatment that will last forever, and that will be extremely strong and natural looking.

The procedure for dental implants includes first placing the implant post into your jawline and letting it heal completely. This can take around 6 weeks, and your dentist will consult with you on the best ways to care for your implant during that time. Once it is healed, you can have a full crown placed. This allows you to have an implant that functions just like a normal tooth! Learn more about the procedure from our Dental Implants page. 

Many of our patients ask if there is any age maximum or minimum for this treatment option. The only age limitation we have in implant dentistry is the requirement that bone growth is completed at the time of implant placement to ensure predictable results. The completion of bone growth generally occurs around the age of 18 for males and 15 for females.

If you have any further questions about dental implants, contact our office today for more information. The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for this treatment is to visit with an experienced dentist who can evaluate your specific needs. We can help, so give us a call today for more information.
