How long do dental implants last?

28 February 2023

Dental implants have been shown to be one of the best methods of replacing missing teeth. If they are well looked after, they can be maintained for 20-30 years or even a lifetime. They have the ability to look, feel and function like the missing teeth and can be used to support single teeth, multiple teeth or supporting dentures.

However, there are some factors that can shorten the lifespan of these implants:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol
  • Bone disorders
  • Trauma
  • Immune deficiency
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Stress

How can one best maintain implants?

  • Brushing twice daily
  • Flossing daily
  • Bi-annual inspection
  • Regular hygiene therapy
  • Antiseptic mouthwash

If long term care is taken, then implants are a very viable alternative to natural teeth. Problems such as bone loss can often be painless and thus it is important that they are checked regularly by an implantologist.

At Cheltenham & Cotswold Dental, implant therapy is carried out by Dr Imran Nasser & Dr Joel Thomas who have a wealth of experience & knowledge in the speciality.

If you have any questions about existing implants, the treatment process or your overall oral health, then please do not hesitate to get in contact with us on 01242 269 498 or via our form.
