How long do dental implants last?

Many patients wonder how strong dental implants are, and how long they will last. Dental implants are the strongest tooth restoration option available to patients. They last upwards of 25 years, or a lifetime if they are cared for properly. Dental implants are built of titanium and are anchored to the bone rather than the tooth’s roots. This allows the implants to be stronger, and in some cases can withstand more pressure than our natural teeth.

Implants look and feel like natural teeth, and feel very comfortable in the mouth. Implants are permanent and make it easier to eat and speak giving patient’s confidence. There is no soaking or cleaning with implants like with other restorative solutions such as dentures.

Implants give patients a beautiful natural looking smile they can be proud of. Any patient is a candidate for implants, and bone grafting can be done if needed to provide the required support for the implants.

Benefits of dental implants:

  • Provide long term value financially
  • Implants preserve the natural bone in the mouth, and this helps to stimulate new bone growth.
  • Implants do not slip or click like other solutions
  • Implants are built to last and with proper oral hygiene habits they can last patient’s a lifetime
  • Look and feel like natural teeth
