How Long Do Dental Implants Last

Unlike dentures, dental implants are built to be permanent. With good care and a healthy lifestyle, there is no reason to think they will ever wear out.

But of course not every patient is identical, and not every crown will wear in precisely the same way. This article describes the general lifespan of a dental implant, touching on the important distinction between replacing a crown (minimal inconvenience) and replacing the entire implant (less inconvenient):

You can expect your crown to last for an average of ten to fifteen years. After this, you may need to get a new crown for your dental implant to maintain the natural appearance and function of your teeth. Getting a crown replaced is not as intrusive as getting the actual dental implant, so this maintenance to your smile will be minor and keep you looking great for years to come.

With plenty of seminar offerings at every level of expertise, including special dental CE courses on digital technologies and bone grafting, we’ve got everything you need to lead the field in your area.

Dental Implants Give Your Patients Better Options

Although we spend a lot of time discussing the many lasting benefits of dental implants, we rarely take much time to discuss the alternatives, and especially why most dentures are inconvenient and often unstable.

Only dental implants offer the sort of easy permanence that most people associate with their natural teeth. As one recent article put it, “Generally speaking, properly designed and placed implant supported teeth can outlast any other tooth replacement choice that you can make.”

Dental implantology is an exacting field that rewards good training and plenty of practice. That’s why our dental CE courses offer training through every stage of the process from beginning concepts through advanced digitally modeled techniques.
