How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental Implants If you’re looking for a new way to replace a missing tooth or teeth, Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists highly recommend considering dental implant treatment. Dental implants are the easiest and most convenient way of restoring your smile without a lot of extra fuss.

Implants have increased in popularity due to their ability to perform as effectively as your natural teeth. They are highly durable and are designed with your day-to-day needs in mind. Since implant restorations are custom-made to suit each person’s mouth, they are very comfortable after they are placed.

How Long Will An Implant Last?

Just like with anything else, implants can last a long time with proper care. But most can last a lifetime with the right care. Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine at home will keep your gums and the surrounding teeth healthy. Brushing and flossing around the implant each day will remove any build-up such as food and plaque. This minimizes the chances of bacteria developing and getting in and under the implant which can potentially cause other issues. When the bone structure and gums are healthy, the implant will be well supported for a long time.

A Few Things to Keep in Mind

Regular checkups and cleanings will allow our dental team to keep an eye on your implant. If we see any areas of concern, they can be addressed right away to ensure the longevity of the implant. If you notice something not feeling right, don’t wait, contact us right away.
