At what age can you get dental implants?

When considering your tooth replacement options, a dental implant is one of the most desirable choices because it resembles your natural tooth from bottom to top. The distinguishing characteristic of an implant is the artificial root, a small threaded titanium post that your dentist surgically places in your jawbone.

And because a tooth implant in Etobicoke fuses to your bone, you should be done growing first. So the minimum age you can get a dental implant is between 18 and 22 years, depending on gender and other factors. For older patients, age is not so much a factor as oral health. You need enough healthy bone structure to support the implant properly, and you also need to be in good overall health.
