Dental implants are dental restorations that replace missing teeth. Implants look, feel and act just like natural teeth, and with proper care can last for decades.
If you have missing teeth, dental implants are a great solution that will allow you to smile, eat and talk just like you did before. Dental implants look, feel and function more or less like natural teeth.
How long will dental implant last?
If you take proper care of them, dental implants can last upwards of 25 years, and in some cases, for life. How long your dental implants last will be influenced the following factors:
Care: How well you take care of your dental implants. Just like caring for your natural teeth, when caring for dental implants it is essential to floss and brush daily, as well as see a dentist every six months.
Good Habits: Be sure to avoid chewing or biting down on extremely hard items, like pencils or pen tips, and not opening things with your teeth, since these behaviours could damage your implants.
