Is old age a problem?

Older patients sometimes express concern their age may prevent them from enjoying the benefits of dental implants.  However, your overall health is more of a determining factor than your age. If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted then you’re probably healthy enough to receive dental implants. Certain chronic diseases may make dental implants treatment an unviable option.  Your dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and health history.
