Who are dental implants suitable for?

 

For nearly all age groups

 

Dental implants can be used as soon as jaw growth is complete. Apart from this restriction, implants can be the optimal solution for all age groups.

 

Requirements for successful treatment

 

The basic requirements for successful implantation are a good general state of health, good oral hygiene and adequate bone quality and volume. If the bone volume is not sufficient for placing an implant, there are various ways of building up the bone again to prepare it for successful implantation.

 

Detailed discussion, diagnostic investigations and planning are crucially important

 

Whether implants are the best solution in an individual case can only be determined by detailed examination and discussion with your dentist. If all the medical requirements are met, careful treatment planning by the dentist is also required if an optimal and long-lasting outcome is to be achieved.
