Dental Implants have the potential for a very long length of service and are on record for providing over fifty years of usefulness. This however, does not mean that every implant, every single time, will give unlimited longevity and uncomplicated service. Many things can affect the service life of dental implants including: general health, smoking, oral hygiene maintenance, the level of loading and wear and tear on and around the implants and even unknown and unexplained events. It is possible that as time goes on, progressive deterioration of supporting bone may occur. This of course will shorten the longevity and suitability of the dental implants. The good news is that Dental Implants are amongst the most dependable and longest lasting of all dental restorative systems that presently exist.
