Dental Implants are a great choice for long-term teeth replacement, but how long do dental implants really last? Factors that affect how long dental implants last depend largely on the lifestyle and overall dental hygiene of a patient. In fact, due to technological advances such as 3d x-rays and better implant design, implant failure due to rejection or functionality issues have largely become problems of the past. Improper implant placement, preexisting medical conditions, diseases and implant misuse are much more likely factors that cause implants to fail. If you have questions about dental implants our implant Specialist, Dr. Tyler Hendry, can tell you more about dental implant options, or you can visit our dental implant page listed here.
When properly maintained with adequate brushing and flossing as well as two yearly visits to the dentist, the dental implant CAN and in most cases should LAST A LIFETIME. The crown (the tooth that fits on top of the implant) is rated to last 10-15 years although with good dental hygiene the life of the crown could be extended much beyond 15 years. However it is easy and non-invasive to replace an implant crown.
The great thing about Zoom teeth whitening is that there are multiple different settings cater towards the individual sensitivity levels of each person. Laser tooth whitening may cause some discomfort or sensitivity in some cases. But if there is a high level of communication and with the precautions we take there should be little to no sensitivity with laser tooth whitening.
