Dental implants

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants help to restore the beauty and fullness of your smile. For patients who are completely missing one or more teeth, a dental implant can be placed in the area of the missing tooth and replace it completely. In the past, your two options for replacing a tooth were by wearing a partial denture or having a fixed dental bridge placed. Technology has changed to improve the success of dental implants, allowing for surgically-guided treatment that ensures a secure-fitting implant.

What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are made of titanium and work to replace a missing tooth. Implants can be used to keep denture plates securely in place for patients who have full dentures. The implant post is the main component of the appliance. The connector and dental crown will be placed on the top of the implant once it has healed. Implants rely on osseointegration to become secure in the jaw bone. This process involves your bone fusing with the titanium of the implant, creating a permanent hold.

How long will your Dental Implants last?
The reason a lot of patients choose dental implants is because they’re permanent. Once the implant has bonded with your jaw bone, it’s there to stay for life. This means that you won’t need to repair or replace the implant years down the road. It is still important to have routine dental exams that will check the health and stability of the implant. However, most patients can successfully have implants placed and benefit from them for decades without any problem coming up. The dental crown that is on the top of the implant will need to be replaced every decade or so or as it begins to show signs of wear. The implant post itself is there to stay and won’t need replacement or repair.
