How long do dental implants last?

We believe that these tooth replacements should continue to last for decades. Naturally, you have to care for them just like natural teeth and clean them twice a day. Since these are tooth replacements, the tiny screw holding the tooth can get loose. If you ever feel any movement in your implant please see one of our dentists immediately so we can secure it quickly.

New research has shown dentists that our jaws continue to grow as we age and our teeth move. The problem is that the implant tooth does not move, and we are sometimes finding that a previously perfect implant may need some help so that you do not pack food between the adjacent teeth. Fortunately, we are adept at this and can correct almost any situation easily.

If you experience a break on the outside of one of your implant teeth, our cosmetic dentists will evaluate and correct it quickly for you.
