How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are a reliable permanent tooth-replacement option for many people who have missing teeth. The implant post naturally fuses to the jawbone, which makes it last for a lifetime. 

However, the crown attached to the post can last anywhere between 10 to 15 years, or longer. The better the crown is cared for, the more likely it will last without premature wear or breakage. 

Replacing a worn or damaged crown is essential for maintaining your oral health and the natural function of your teeth. Without a strong and stable crown, you can have issues chewing, biting, speaking, and socializing with ease.
