How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are permanent, so they last a lifetime. The thin titanium implant post is surgically placed in the jaw, and over several weeks, the jawbone grows around the implant and secures it in place. Ultimately, the implant post becomes part of your mouth's anatomy. Once the implant is placed and the patient's mouth heals, we can attach a dental crown, bridge, denture, or selected restoration on top of the dental implant. 

At Mountainside Family Dental, our restorations are custom-made to your unique smile, including fit, color, shape, and size. Though our tooth restorations are durable and long-lasting, they're not indestructible. A dental restoration may need replacement after several years if it's damaged or worn down. You can increase the lifespan of your restorations by practicing excellent oral hygiene and visiting the dentist for routine dental checkups so we can ensure your smile stays healthy and functional.
