  • Require experts of high qualifications and experience.

The suitable age for Dental Implant

The most suitable subjects for the Implant method are people from 18 to 50 years old. So what about people under 18 or above 50?

Under 18

This is the age when dentists recommend that patients not have Dental Implant. Because during this time, the jawbone system is still incomplete. Therefore, performing Implant surgery during this period may harm patients’ jawbone system and cause great consequences for the foundation and development of the bone structure.

Above 50

According to experts, the elderly (50 or above) need dentists’ consultation in order to decide whether to have Implant or not. The elderly must ensure their general health status and oral health to be able to have Dental Implant surgery.

Things to note before and after the Dental Implant surgery

Before the Implant surgery

Gum condition: Long-lost teeth will make gums gradually become flat, not suitable for applying dental implant methods. Therefore, you need to reshape this part of the gums. Experts suppose it usually takes about 3-6 months for the patient to complete the gum shaping procedure.

In addition, please note that the gums need to be thick enough to perform the best Implant placement. If the gums are too thin, the dentist needs to perform gum graft surgery.

Bone condition: Whether the implant is sustainable or well-integrated depends greatly on bone density. The bone needs to meet the standards in width, length and height to help the implant post have enough space to firmly attach to the jawbone. According to dental implant standards, each dimension must meet 1 mm of bone density to be able to place and hold the implant.

Before the Implant surgery

After the Implant surgery

Diet: After the Dental Implant surgery, patients need to minimize foods that are too tough, too hard and foods that contain a lot of acid and sugar.

Oral care regimen: You need to brush your teeth properly at least twice a day in the morning and at night. Also, you should floss after every meal. Dental floss works to clean plaque on teeth effectively to ensure that there is no bacteria on the implant teeth.

After the Implant surgery

Not only that, dentists also recommend using mouthwash after the Implant placement. Regular use of mouthwash will help keep the oral cavity completely clean, ensuring that the newly implanted teeth are completely protected.

Regular check-up every 3-6 months: To make sure that the Implant process does go wrong, you should see the doctor after every 3-6 months. This helps you detect and fix problems early.
