How long do dental implants last?

For people with missing teeth dental implants are a great option. Dental implants are dental restorations that replace missing teeth. They look, feel and act just like natural teeth do, and can last for decades with proper care.


Dental implants look, feel and function pretty much like natural teeth. If you have missing teeth, dental implants are a great solution that will allow you to smile, eat and talk with confidence, just like you did before.

How long do dental implant last?

Provided you take good care of them, dental implants can last upwards of 25 years. In some cases dental implants can  last for life. Whether or not yours last forever will be influenced the following factors:

Care: How well you take care of your dental implants by daily flossing and brushing and of course, seeing a dentist every six months.

Good Habits: Avoiding chewing or biting down on extremely hard items, such as pen tips or pencils, and not opening things with your teeth, since these behaviours can damage your implants.
