How Long Do Dental Implants Last
Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular option for missing teeth due to the natural look and longevity they offer. After possibly years of being afraid to smile due to missing teeth, dental implants are giving patients the confidence to smile proudly and love the way they look without fear of temporary dentures moving throughout the day.
Dental implants have many benefits but mainly they are favoured over other treatments due to their lifespan of 25 years or more.
By maintaining a good dental hygiene regime and taking care of your implants, dental implants can last your whole lifetime. How long your dental implants will last depend on:
· How well you are brushing and flossing your teeth
· Making sure you visit your dentist every 6 months
· Taking care of your teeth by avoiding biting or chewing hard items such as pens or tape
· Your lifestyle choices
Dental implants are inserted into the bone socket of the missing tooth and will blend seamlessly into your smile. Most patients report little to no discomfort after the procedure and say a tooth extraction is more painful.
Proceeding with dental implant surgery will be a weight off your shoulders and once they are fitted you won’t feel the difference between the implant and your natural teeth!
