Dental implants can also look natural. Implants are compatible with the latest cosmetic dentistry restorations, giving you a smile in which people might not be able to tell your dental implants from your natural teeth.
Dental implants are a versatile tooth replacement. They can replace just one missing tooth with a single implant, up to an entire arch with all-on-X dental implants.
Dental implants are easy to maintain. Just brush, floss, and make your regular dental checkups. It might take a little while to get good at flossing around the implant–some people choose an interdental brush instead–but once you do, you’ll find your daily hygiene routine is about the same as before.
If you take care of your dental implants properly, they have the potential to last a lifetime. Long-term studies of dental implants show that more than 90% of them are still in place after 20 years or more. People have dental implants in place that were placed over 50 years ago. How long your implants will last depends on how well you care for them and whether you work with an experienced implant specialist.
