Okay for dental implants if I grind teeth?

Q. For many years I have been grinding my teeth. It took me some time to get a mouth guard and by then some of my teeth were beyond repair. I had to have 3 removed and there have been gaps in my teeth for three yeas now. I still grind my teeth and this is something I have not been able to stop. If I am to get dental implants would they be okay seen as I do grind my teeth? I will of course wear mouthguard at night.
A. It is very important that the grinding habit does not cause destructive damage to the crowns aswell as the implants. Therfore a good constructed nightguard would be required.
