According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, 69 percent of American adults aged 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. This number typically increases with age.
Are You a Successful Candidate For Dental Implants?
Depending on a few factors, dental implants may be right for you. Our dentists say that a patient’s general health is often more important than age. This procedure requires a fair degree of healing for it to work effectively. A successful candidate is generally considered to be a non-smoking adult with a moderately strong immune system. A patient’s current state and history of oral hygiene is also another important factor when deciding if dental implants are right for you.
