Am I too old to get a tooth replaced?

No, you are never too old for a dental implant! Dental implants can be successfully placed in adult patients of any age, as long as there is sufficient bone density to support the implant. Bone density decreases with age, so it is important to have your jawbone evaluated prior to placement of the implant. If your jawbone is not dense enough, a bone graft may be necessary to build up the area for successful implant placement. Your dentist will be able to evaluate your bone density and discuss the best treatment plan for you.
