How Long Will My Dental Implants Last?

dental-implants-pittsburghDental implants are popular with our Pittsburgh-area patients for a number of reasons. They’re quite inconspicuous and, unlike many other forms of tooth replacement, they’re firmly anchored in your jaw, which means they prevent the many health problems associated with a missing tooth.

But for all the reasons dental implants are so popular, one of the more prominent is their durability. Put simply, dental implants last a long time.

How long, exactly? This is one of the most common questions we hear from patients, and understandably so. After all, you want to know your new dental work will last and justify the investment of time and money.

Of course, every patient is unique, and there are many variables that will affect the durability of your dental implants. But generally speaking, if you maintain your implants properly and don’t grind or clench your teeth, you can expect your implants to last for decades.

And maintaining your implants isn’t complicated. Basically, treat them like your other teeth. Brush at least twice a day, floss on a daily basis and visit our office at least twice a year, and your dental implats will serve you loyally for decades to come.
