How often will I need to have my dental implants checked?
Is dental implant surgery painful?
Are there any age limitations for dental implants?
Yes. Facial skeletal growth should be complete. This occurs around the age of 18 and as long as there is enough bone available in which to place the implants.
What is the procedure process?
We will examine your dental health by evaluating your mouth and teeth and review as much medical and dental history available. Then we will perform some X-rays and possibly a CT scan. This is done to help us understand your bone density and the shape of your jaw.
