What Is the Minimum Age to Get Dental Implants?

Dr. Carlos Garcia, Bright Smiles Dental Studio Image Of What Is the Minimum Age to Get Dental Implants?

Although dental implants can be applied to patients of any age, our dentist in Glendale recommends that they only be placed in adult patients. This is because children and teenagers lack the adequate bone support and are still growing, which will often work against dental implants.

If you are looking to get dental implants, it’s important that you have:

  • Good overall health
  • Excellent oral care habits
  • Adequate bone support
  • Good gum health

Additionally, patients that would like to get dental implants should be willing and able to remain from smoking as well as commit to routine visits to see our dentist. Even though the implants require only minimal upkeep like brushing and flossing regularly, visits with the dentist will make sure that everything is functioning properly and will ensure that your implants last a lifetime.
