How Long do Dental Implants Last?

Our Norfolk cosmetic dentist has years of experience helping Virginia residents use dental implants to replace missing teeth. These strong, sturdy implants help stave off the onset of the range of problems associated with missing teeth and make sure you don't have unsightly gaps in your smile.

One of the appeals of dental implants is their exceptional durability. Once Norfolk cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Folck completes the procedure, your implants can last decades, even the rest of your life.

There are two reasons for the durability of dental implants. First, they are made from strong, durable materials, such as titanium and porcelain. Second, the implant support is placed deep within your jawbone, where it integrates into the bone structure and is accepted by your body.

This provides a strong, stable base of support for the entire structure, including the porcelain crown that forms the visible part of the implant.

Now, it's important to understand, and our Norfolk cosmetic dentist will emphasize, that this durability should not be taken for granted. It's dependent upon your consistent, thorough care. You have to care for the dental implant just as you do your other teeth.

But provided you practice good dental hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing daily and visiting the dentist for regularly scheduled cleanings, your dental implants will last you decades.


If you're a Norfolk, Virginia resident and you want to speak to our cosmetic dentist for more informatio on dental implants, please contact Dr. Michael Folck, DDS today.
