Do Dental Implants Last Forever?
Dental implants are unique among tooth replacement options. While most solutions for missing teeth address the crown of the tooth, dental implants replace the tooth’s missing root and, in doing so, are able to offer the most reliable and longest lasting solution available. Are dental implants permanent? Most likely. However, much of their longevity relies on how well you care for your teeth and gums after they are placed.

Dental implants act as a base for restorations such as dental crowns. While the implant itself will likely last for a lifetime, dental crowns may need to be replaced every 10 to 20 years to help them maintain their strength and appearance. As with implants, routine dental care will work to ensure your dental crowns last much longer.
Caring for both dental implants and crowns should consist of brushing after every meal and snack, flossing twice a day, and visiting our Beaverton office every six months for professional services. During these visits Dr. Negru can field any questions you have about crown and implant maintenance.
