If you take care of your dental implants, they should last the duration of your lifetime. But it should be noted that these dental implants are not indestructible. Most dental problems stem from oral disease, poor oral care or lack of treatment, and the same is true for dental implants. Without proper care, the dental implants are at risk for destruction or failure. The best way to make your dental implants last is to follow your oral surgeon’s instructions, continue the outlined care for your teeth, and attend regular check-ups.
