Should my child get dental implants to replace a lost tooth?

Has your child lost a permanent tooth due to injury or accident? Replacing that tooth is important for their health, well-being and looks, and dental implants are a preferred solution for replacing teeth as your child matures.


Why are dental implants the right choice for your child compared to other tooth replacement options?

Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.
Dental implants won’t shift when your child talks, eats or laughs.
Dental implants are built to last.


Because dental implants are built to last, a dental implant expert will wait until your child is 17 or older to perform the implant procedure. But you should start planning now by finding an AAID credentialed implant dentist.

Ignoring a missing tooth is NOT an option.

Choosing the right dentist is critical because your child’s looks and long-term health are at stake.

Choose an AAID credentialed implant dentist - the dental implant experts. The AAID credential is your assurance that a dental implant dentist has education, training, experience, and competence in implant dentistry. You can trust an AAID credentialed implant dentist to give your child the confidence and beautiful result that only a dental implant expert can offer.

Find an implant dentist right now.
