How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants are one of the best modern-day advancements in dentistry. In this post, our experts will lift the curtain on this innovative and impressive treatment, helping you make a decision about your smile and whether dental implants could work for you. Read on to find out what’s involved in the process, how to care for your new implants and how long your incredible results could last.
Tooth implant treatment couldn’t be easier. We’ll first invite you to a consultation, which allows us to check over your smile and ensure the treatment is right for you, and we’ll then arrange an appointment for the implants to be fitted. This involves a small incision being made into the gumline, with the new tooth gently screwed into place. Over time, this fuses to the underlying jawbone and ensures your new tooth will be strong and useful! One everything has healed nicely, we’ll fit the crown, and your new tooth will be ready to go.
A lifetime of wear
Tooth implants could last the rest of your life! It’s pretty incredible for something so small and a procedure that’s so quick and minor to carry out. All it takes is twice-daily brushing and flossing, as well as your usual dental check-ups. Up to 95% of dental implant treatments are successful, which is great odds for your smile!
Strong & durable
Our dental implants don’t just look impressively natural. They’re also a strong and durable solution for tooth loss, thanks to the biocompatible (‘body safe’) materials used, which guarantee a strong anchor point for your new tooth. You’ll no longer need to skip on certain foods or worry about dentures slipping in your mouth, thanks to our strong tooth implant solutions!
An anti-ageing bonus
Gaps in the smile can be surprisingly ageing and can also make your face appear sunken. Tooth implants give the face structure and enable you to look more youthful once again. As well as this, your implant is colour-matched to your smile and could help brighten its appearance.
With dental implants, you don’t need to do anything differently or invest in different brushes or toothpaste. It’s the same straight-forward care that your natural teeth need. Keeping on top of your oral health will ensure nothing goes wrong, and could guard against problems such as infection in those early days.
