At The Dental Lounge, we take dental implants very seriously, with not every patient being a suitable candidate for this process. For those wishing to undergo this process, it’s important to know that they must be 17 years or older to be considered for this dental treatment. While there are other factors at play, for now, a brief understanding of the age requirement will help you understand if you or your children will be able to get Dental Implants in Pompano Beach should one of you lose a tooth.
While some patients believe they may be too old or too young to benefit from this option, they might be surprised to know that anyone older than 17 or 18 boasts candidacy for dental implants. As the procedure requires a fully developed jaw, patients with good oral health and suitable needs are able to undergo this treatment. As titanium screws are placed directly into the jawbone, this tooth-replacement system requires a fully developed jawbone. Fortunately, our dentists will be able to evaluate your candidacy – and your jawbone maturity – with x-rays and images.
