Dental Implants

How long do implants last? 

Dental implants are considered a long-term tooth replacement solution. When dental implants are cared for properly - and good oral health and bone density are maintained - dental implants can last many years. According to the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, many implants have now been in place for longer than 40 years. 

How long do implants take to recover?

The base of a dental implant is placed in the bone of the jaw where it then undergoes a process of fusing with the bone called osseintegration. The length of time that this process takes can vary depending on the health of your jaw bone, but it generally takes about 2 to 4 months. Getting dental implants is a process, but this long-term, highly functional, and natural-looking solution to tooth loss is worth the wait!
