How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

16 FEB 2023

Traditional alternatives for restoring missing teeth have always included options like dentures, partials, and dental bridges. However, the modern, streamlined dental implants are now the gold standard for restoring a smile. Why? Because they offer the best return on investment, are minimally invasive, and can last a lifetime.

Our dental implants in Sydney are essentially biocompatible, artificial tooth roots. They can support single and multi-tooth restorations, making them suitable for almost any smile reconstruction procedure.

Implants Are Non-Invasive

Many conventional tooth loss therapies rely on neighbouring healthy teeth for support. A typical bridge, for example, can only be fitted if the neighbouring teeth are shaved down to allow the bridge to sit on top of them. Such intrusive procedures can compromise the integrity of your virgin teeth.


Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that is not intrusive to your other teeth. They do not need to be adjusted, reshaped, or altered because they are set directly into a bony socket (like an anatomical tooth).

Dental Implants Are Cost-Effective

Dental implants provide the best return on investment when compared to traditional tooth replacement solutions. Instead of having to replace them every 5-10 years, they usually last as long as they are maintained. So, while they may cost a little more upfront, they can help you save money over the course of your lifetime.

Preserve Your Natural Alignment

When you lose a tooth, the teeth adjacent to it tend to shift into the space. Furthermore, opposing teeth begin to sprout further from the socket in an attempt to locate a biting partner. 

Tooth loss, like pulling a book off the shelf, might set off a chain reaction in the rest of your bite. By inserting an implant into the free space, you are effectively giving the required support to keep all of the other teeth in their current position.


Who’s Not Eligible for Implants?

Someone who has missing teeth and practices good oral hygiene is a good candidate for dental implants. Because each implant serves as an artificial tooth root, it is vital that they be supported by strong bones. Patients with bone disorders, such as osteoporosis, or untreated periodontal disease may not be candidates for implant insertion because the implants may fail to integrate.

Dental Implants vs. Root Canals

Implants are a therapy option for anyone who has lost a tooth. Implants are made to look and feel like natural tooth roots. They are implanted near the afflicted teeth in the bone. The implant is then connected with the bone in the same way that a natural tooth root is. 

On the other hand, root canals are frequently recommended for two reasons. The first is an infection of the tooth’s inner nerve tissues, which affects the life and vitality of the tooth. Another issue is inflammation, which can cause the tooth to become hypersensitive. In these circumstances, removing the pulp tissues is the most effective method of pain relief, rather than extracting the tooth altogether.
