long-term benefits
« on: October 31, 2013, 02:32:45 AM »
Are the benefits of having implants long term? For instance, you had implants when you’re 30, does it guarantee that I won’t be needing dentures anymore in the *ture?

I think implants will not be that of help. implants is just like a cosmetic surgery. More of a temporary thing rather than a lifetime guarantee. There is still a chance of using dentures if something happens or there is a need to wear one.

Dental Implants are supposed to have long-term benefits. Generally, and on an average, they are expected to last more than 20 years. An interesting fact is that the very first patient who had dental implants was back in 1965. It’s been 47 years but that patient still has dental implants working. It can really last a lifetime. But there are factors that determine that like location of implants or whether or not it’s placed on natural or grafted bone. Also, if the patient is a smoker, it decreases the rate of success.
