Patients often ask how long their dental implants will last. After all, they are making an investment in replacing their missing teeth, and the long-term success of their treatment is an important part of their decision. When implants are placed by experienced surgeons and restored properly by restorative dentists, our experiences and dental literature reflect success rates of over 99%. But, just how long do they last? The answer is a very long time – potentially a lifetime. In fact, we offer a lifetime warranty on all of our dental implants.
The longevity of dental implants is truly multi-faceted and depends on the quality of the surgery and restorative treatment, the quality of the patient’s bone, the quality of the materials used, the patient’s health, individual healing physiology, oral hygiene, and regular professional care. While certain health conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, can alter a person’s immune system and impair the success of implants, most other factors are within our control. With careful attention to every detail during treatment and long-term support and care, we have achieved a 99.87% success rate with our implant treatments over the past 15 years.
We have designed a unique implant treatment program, along with our lifetime warranty, which helps our patients to eat better, smile more, live healthier, and now have peace of mind about their investment.
