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.

Dental Implant Pricing and Questions

There are over 50 companies making dental implants. Each of these companies employees strenuous machining techniques to make a quality product.
