It is very common for people in their 80â€™s or even 90â€™s to have dental implants. Age by itself is not the issue. Itâ€™s a question of your overall health. At the time of the consultation appointment, you will be advised if you are a good candidate for dental implants. In general, if you are healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you are healthy enough to have a dental implant successfully placed.
