How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Cosmetic Dentistry for Beverly Hills & Los Angeles, CA

 One of the major benefits that dental implants have over dental bridges and other tooth replacement options is their longevity. With proper oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime without ever needing to be replaced. Since implants are fused directly to your jawbone, they are just as durable and strong as a natural tooth, and they can be cared for in the same way as your natural teeth.
 
Practicing good oral hygiene is the best thing you can do for your dental implants. Brush at least twice a day, and floss at least once every day to prevent the accumulation of plaque and bacteria.
 
Maintaining regular check-ups with your dentist is also important to ensure your dental implants are functioning properly. If problems like periodontal disease are threatening the stability of your implants, Dr. Sands can identify this issue and treat it before it develops any further. By keeping up with a steady dental health routine and taking good care of your implants, you can enjoy your new smile for many years to come.
