Could age play a factor in getting dental implants? Find out now!

Dental implants can be an amazing way to replace one or more missing teeth. Of course, as with any treatment, our Galloway, NJ dental implantsdentists Dr. Bhavin Patel, Dr. Daniel Ciechanowski and Dr. Walter Finken, Jr. will need to first make sure that your smile is right for this restoration. Some patients worry that their age is a factor so we are here to give you the details on what makes someone a good candidate for dental implants.

You’ll be happy to hear that you are never too old for dental implants. These restorations can be an ideal way to replace missing teeth throughout your adult life. If you are in good health then you may just be a great candidate for getting dental implants in Galloway, NJ.

While you can never be too old for implants you can actually be too young. Children and teens whose jawbones are still developing won’t be right for implants. Since the implant has to be placed into the jawbone this could actually alter the development of the jawbone and stunt its growth. In this case, our Galloway, NJ dentist will discuss other treatment options to replace your child’s missing teeth. Once your child has become an adult then they could possibly be great candidates for treatment.

There are other factors besides age that determine whether dental implants are right for you including:

  • Your general health
  • Your oral health
  • The health and density of your jawbone
  • Your dedication and oral hygiene
  • Whether you are a smoker
  • Whether you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant during the course of treatment

If you are interested in getting dental implants then it’s time you called our Galloway, NJ dental implant experts to give you back the smile you know you deserve. Schedule your consultation today!
