Dental implant and age
No age limit as long as your health!
All the best,
How old is too old for Dental Implants.
Implants can be placed at any age if there is good bone. Bone grafting techniques can create additional bone for implant placement as well.
Lower dentures can almost always be retained with anterior implants because there is almost always olenty of bone in the anterior mandible. That is where implants were placed in my uncle.
