How Long do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants are the most durable solution for replacing missing teeth, and in most cases with proper care dental implants can last a lifetime.

The first step to enjoying the beauty, comfort and performance of dental implants is a personal consultation with the Pittsburgh dentists at Dentonics. We can answer your questions about dental implants and determine if dental implants are the best option for replacing your missing teeth.

For the right patients, dental implants are an ideal treatment for missing teeth because they look, feel and function like healthy natural teeth. Unlike other teeth replacement options such as dentures or dental bridges, dental implants are a more predictable long term treatment option if if you practice a good dental hygiene routine.

We will review your care guidelines with you in detail prior to your dental implants procedure, but dental implants are maintained largely in the same manner as your natural teeth. Your dental implants care regimen should include brushing at least twice a day with a soft-bristled tooth brush.

You should carefully floss between your dental implants and existing teeth at least once a day after brushing. You may wish to rinse with an antiseptic, anticavity mouthwash after brushing and flossing to kill lingering bacteria and flush remaining food particles.

One of the most important steps after receiving dental implants is to undergo regular check-ups with the Pittsburgh dentists at Dentonics. In addition to checking for dental health problems, routine exams allow us to monitor the integrity of your dental implants to ensure they remain healthy and functional, so your smile remains seamless.
