How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are a type of dental restoration that replaces missing teeth. Dental implants look, feel and act like natural teeth, and with proper care can last for decades.


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

How long do dental implant last?

If you take good care of your dental implants they can last upwards of 25 years. In some cases they will even last for life. Whether your dental implants will last forever will be influenced the following factors:

Care: Taking good care of your dental implants will certainly influence how long they last. Be sure to brush well, floss daily, and visit your dentist every six months.

Good Habits: You should avoid chewing or biting down on extremely hard items, like pen tips or pencils, and absolutely do not open things with your teeth! These behaviours could damage your implants.
