How long do dental implants last?

On average, dental implants last for a decade or longer. But you may be able to adopt some healthy habits today to keep your implants intact well into the future, exceeding the average.

Dental implant longevity varies for many reasons, including oral care and quality dentistry. For dental implants in Fredericksburg, VA, we recommend:

  • Visiting your dentist regularly for checkups and dental cleanings
  • Brushing and flossing your teeth, including your implants, at least twice daily
  • Wearing protective oral appliances if you compete in sports or grind your teeth
  • Reporting oral health concerns to your dentist immediately

Our recommendations for dental implants are the same as for natural teeth, demonstrating how similar implants are to the teeth you were born with.

So, with healthy habits, your dental implants may last for several decades or even for life!

A dental implant is a tooth root fabricated from strong titanium. It is the foundation for a restoration like a tooth crown or an attached denture.
