How Long Will Dental Implants Last?

A dental implant from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ is an ideal replacement for a missing tooth. Implants look and function like natural teeth, and can last for many years – twenty-five years and longer.

Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advances in dentistry, and they really seem to be coming into their own. An implant is a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw. Titanium is ideally suited for this because it fuses easily with bone. The body rarely rejects titanium; dental implants have a success rate of greater than ninety percent.

Once the implant is in place and has fused, it becomes a replacement tooth root. One implant can support one artificial tooth, and several of them can support a dental bridge or a full dental arch.

In addition to functionality, dental implants also help to prevent bone loss. Bone loss often happens once a tooth has been pulled, but an implant in the jawbone prevents it; it can even strengthen the bone.
