Dental implants are intended to be permanent replacements for your missing teeth and require the same care as your original teeth in order to keep them stable and functional in your mouth. This includes daily brushing and flossing as well as regular visits to your dentist for preventive care.
Anyone who has lost a tooth or teeth is a candidate for implant dentistry. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you will most likely be able to receive implants without any difficulty. If you have a pre-existing condition, such as tooth decay or gum disease, you will need to receive treatment for that condition before you can receive an implant.
