How long should a dental implant last?

A dental implant is a permanent tooth-replacement option that restores a person’s natural bite, speech, and their smile’s appearance. With routine brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings, dental implant posts can last for a lifetime. However, the dental crown attached to the implant post may need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years due to natural wear and tear. 

At the dental office of Dr. Helma Philips, our highly skilled and experienced team can place and restore dental implants using leading-edge technology and techniques. 

Oral Hygiene Prolongs the Life of Dental Implants

Brushing and flossing keep the teeth and gums healthy enough to support your mouth’s surrounding structures and the implants themselves. 

To preserve your dental implant’s vitality, we recommend that you brush your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste. Flossing is also essential, as it removes food particles and plaque from between the teeth.  

Biannual dental exams and cleanings allow Dr. Philips to monitor your oral health and ensure your teeth, gums, and implants look, feel, and function to exceed your expectations

Practicing excellent dental hygiene reduces the risk of decay, gum disease, infection, and other oral health concerns.
