How long do dental implants last?

If you have missing teeth, dental implants may be the solution you’re looking for. Unlike removable appliances like dentures, dental implants permanently replace missing teeth. A dental implant replaces the tooth and root, and the implant post is a thin titanium screw placed in the jaw. The visible part of the implant––which can be a crown, bridge, or denture––can last for several years if well cared for. However, these prosthetic teeth may need to be replaced over time to ensure your smile stays functional and comfortable. Your dentist can discuss how to best care for your teeth and gums and increase the longevity of your dental implants. 

Dental implants are considered the gold standard for tooth replacement because of their superior stability, comfort, function, and longevity. Dental implants have transformed countless smiles, allowing patients to bite, chew, speak, and smile with newfound confidence and ease.
