Yes, you can definitely opt for dental implants. Nowadays the problem with arthritis in aging women is very common. We receive many patients who have a problem. But fortunately this arthritis problem will probably affect the TM joint or the other jaw bone at a very final level. Then, there is not much effect of arthritis on the jaw bone. Density or hardness or bone quality is very important in such patients. Therefore, we verify the density of the bone that we classify into 4 categories. First and second quality that are bone of very good quality, then we can definitely opt for the implant while the third or fourth category are of lower quality, so we have a problem to achieve a good osseointegration, that is, the adjustment of the implant. So, all together to conclude, yes, women with arthritis can definitely go for implants. But generally we can not categorize all cases. We have to look at the individual case and understand what exactly the level of arthritis is and its effect on the jaw bones and make a decision about whether they can go to dental implants for a case or not.
