When growth stops: The short answer is yes! there is s minimum age, and it may be as early as eighteen, but i can not tell you the number. What determines the suitability of a young patient for implant placement in the mouth is time when they reach the end of their growth spurts. Girls are usually a little earlier that boys. We used to talk a lot about taking x-rays of the wrists and making a determination about when the growth centers fuse, (epiphyseal fusion), but a more accurate determinant now is the lateral cephalogram. On of these x-rays taken at a time when your son's shoe size stop increasing, and then another 4 - 6 months later, and if superimposition show s complete overlap and now growth he will then be ready for the implant phase of treatment. Now in the mean time you want to maintain that space where the tooth is missing. I recommend either a removable partial flipper for a just a few years , or if the relationship between the upper and lower teeth permits you could bond a false tooth between the teeth on either side of the space. I hope this helps dr neil mcleod dds dentistry that lasts - quality that counts. ...Read more
