FOR WHOM ARE IMPLANTS RECOMMENDED?
Implants are recommended for most adults. Adolescents should only have implants placed once their facial bones are fully developed, or in the case of specific orthodontic procedures. An implantology specialist should be contacted to obtain more information about the risks and benefits of the procedure, and to find out if the implants are the right solution for you. If you’re thinking about getting implants, you need to understand that it’s a serious commitment, as the success of the procedure and the duration of the implants themselves will depend heavily on scrupulous daily oral hygiene and getting regular check-ups and professional cleanings.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN REQUIREMENTS FOR GETTING IMPLANTS?
The ideal candidate for implants generally must have sufficient bone tissue, must be in good health, and must have healthy gums. However, it is the dentist’s job to determine whether implants are suitable for your case by conducting a examination, and by taking panoramic dental x-rays, creating study models, and possibly taking a CT scan.

DOES LOW BONE QUANTITY ELIMINATE THE POSSIBILITY OF PLACING IMPLANTS IN ALL CASES?
No, thanks to advanced surgical techniques. In fact, in some cases sinus lift techniques can be used to increase the thickness and height of the bone prior to or during the placement of the implant. In other cases, computer-guided techniques can be used to “guide” the doctor during the surgical phase, in order to allow implants to be placed into borderline bone crests. Another approach involves the use of bone regeneration techniques, which allow the bone to grow until the volumes needed for implant placement are obtained.
