Dental Implant Placement after years
by: Anonymous

Even if the tooth has been extracted for some time, it may still be possible to place an implant. There are many factors to consider, as your doctor will tell you, but the important considerations are:
1. Quality of bone - without good support you cannot place an implant. Sometimes the bone will resorb (disappear) over time and you will not be able to place an implant without bone reconstruction.
2. Sufficient space between neighboring teeth - Over time your teeth may shift to fill in the gap. If an implant is required but there is insufficient space, even for a narrow implant, you may require orthodontic work first.
3. Other anatomical considerations- There may be a nerve or sinus which would make implant placement difficult. However, most obstacles can be overcome if necessary.

As always, your doctor should let you know your options, or refer you to a specialist for further recommendations.
