Age and Dental Implants

We often get asked about dental implants and what age a patient may receive dental implants. On the one hand, when a patient is too young, the jaw bone is still in development so we will wait until growth has stopped for replacement option of teeth. When an older patient is seeking dental implant treatment, it really has more to do with health factors rather than age.

Age is not a limiting factor for dental implant treatment at our Bowmanville dental office. If you are healthy enough to have a tooth removed, you most likely are healthy enough for dental implants. We have successfully placed dental implants up to their mid 70-80’s as long as they are healthy.

While there are certain conditions that may complicate or prohibit dental implant treatment, this can be determined at your consultation visit to examine your dental and medical history.
