How long will my implant last for?

Generally implants last quite a long time, but there will be complications and maintenance required. Implants are prone to gum disease, bone loss, and other problems that need to be tended to by one of our team.



A dental implant is a device used to replace missing teeth. The implant itself is made of titanium or sometimes ceramic and is threaded into the jaw bone, and is hidden under the gum. There are usually two further parts connected to the implant - the false tooth or teeth, which can be made in many different ways, and the part that connects the the false tooth/teeth to the implant (or implants). If you need further information please contact the practice.
