    Not everyone but almost everyone. My mother had implants put in when she was 90 years old. Children are not suitable. You must have stopped growing before implants are placed. There are a few medical conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes which preclude implant placement, but by and large, almost everyone can have implants placed. Of course each persons individual situation would would be diagnosed and discussed at the initial consultation appointment.

    No. Suitability for implants depends on:
    - Adequate bone for length and width of implant screw to be supported securely.

    - Overall health of person as this can affect the healing potential of the bone around the implant. Diabetes can be of some concern.
