Mini dental implants
There is no age limitation for dental implant treatment. Mini dental implant placement is a minimal surgical procedure that can be done in one visit. However, you still need some bone to hold the mini implants. Your health should also allow local anesthetic and minor surgery.
Adequate bone for implants
you have already been told no for mini implants which are the thinnest on the market
Best way to know if you have enough height and width of bone is to have a CT scan of the area
depending on how much bone is missing, bone could be regenerated. Also look into all on 4 option. Cases with limited amount of bone have been documented using all on 4 technique
