How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

We understand that dental implants are a huge investment, both in terms of financial and oral health commitment. You want your dental implants to last a long time, and we’re here to help you reach that goal.

Dental implants have the potential to last the rest of your lifetime, although there is no guarantee we can offer, as each patient is unique and a wide variety of dental factors come into play. According to Osseo News, the success rate for dental implants in natural bone is 95%, although this rate falls to 85-90% in grafted bone. The first dental implants ever placed were given to a man named Gosta Larrsson. He received the implants in 1965 and had them until his death in 2006, a time frame of over 40 years. This is certainly not uncommon, as the treatment has a very high success rate. Furthermore, dental implants have advanced a great deal since 1965, so we’re hopeful that we can offer each of our patients the longevity they’re looking for.

How can you help?

The best way to make implants last forever is to take the same steps you take to care for the rest of your teeth. Proper care, regular dental checkups, and meticulous oral hygiene will ensure that your implants last as long as they possibly can.
