How Long do Dental Implants Last?

Noorthoek Periodontics and Implantology in Boca Raton, FLIf you're considering dental implants to replace your missing teeth you likely have a lot of questions. You might be pondering how long these implants will last, what materials are used to create them, and whether they constitute a permanent solution. Our team at John A. Lindsay and Daniel R. Noorthoek Periodontics and Implantology can help answer all of your questions regarding dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants Made Of?



Dental implants are typically crafted from titanium. The choice of this material isn't accidental.  Its strength, durability, and bio-compatibility, which means its not harmful to the body, make it the preferred choice for many dental professionals.

While other materials such as zirconia can also be used, titanium stands as the most popular material selected for dental implants due to its ability to bond with the body's natural bone tissue, showcasing excellent osseointegration. Osseointegration is the processing of the implant post fusing with the jawbone.

Are Dental Implants Meant to Be a Permanent Solution to Missing Teeth?



As for the permanence of dental implant posts, they are intended to be a permanent solution. They're securely anchored into your jawbone to stand in for the root of your missing tooth. This strong foundation lets them provide a lasting solution without any discomfort or unnatural feel.

Single tooth implants can be placed for individual missing teeth, or multiple tooth implants may be used if you are missing several teeth in a row. 

Will the Dental Crown on Top of My Dental Implant Need to Be Replaced?



Regarding the question of whether the dental crown atop your implant will need to be replaced, it depends. Even though the implant post itself is long-lasting, the dental crown may need replacement after 10 to 15 years, due to the wear and tear it receives over time and through chewing. The longevity of your dental crown greatly depends on your personal care and oral hygiene routines. 

What is the Lifespan of Dental Implants?



Dental implants have quite an impressive lifespan. If properly cared for, they can last for upwards of 25 years! So, they are truly a long-term solution for teeth replacement. However, keep in mind that individual situations can vary and your oral health habits play a significant role in the lifespan of your dental implants.

How Do I Maintain My Dental Implants?



Maintaining and caring for your dental implants isn't difficult or require any special dental tools, pastes, or adhesives. Proper care for your dental implants simply involves routine brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups with us. While dental implants are resistant to cavities, the surrounding gums are still susceptible to bacterial attack, and the development of gum disease.  Therefore the need to maintain good oral hygiene is key, not only for your dental implants, but for your other teeth and gum care as well.
