How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are dental restorations that replace missing teeth. They look, feel and act just like natural teeth do, and with proper care, can last for decades.


Dental implants look, feel and function more or less exactly like natural teeth. If you have missing teeth, dental implants are a great solution that will allow you to smile, eat and talk just like you did before.

How long do dentals implant last?

Provided you take good care of them, dental implants can last upwards of 25 years, and in some cases, for life. Whether or not your dental implants last forever will be influenced the following factors:

Care: How well you take care of your dental implants, like daily flossing and brushing, seeing a dentist every six months.

Good Habits: Avoiding chewing or biting down on extremely hard items, like pen tips or pencils, and not opening things with your teeth, as these behaviours could damage your implants.
