When a patient who visits highly skilled dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox at Desert Smiles Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry in Glendale, Arizona is suffering from a cracked or missing tooth, few restorative dentistry procedures are as effective and attractive as dental implants.
Why? Dental implants make such a marked difference on the right patients that those people often experience life-altering benefits from the procedure including being able to speak and eat with more ease.
But how long to dental implants last?
Although each patient’s dental health needs and physiology are different, longevity is one of the fantastic benefits of dental implants. It is not unusual, for instance, for a person to go several years or even decades without needing to replace a dental implant. It helps in the longevity department that unlike natural teeth, dental implants are resistant to decay.
A few of the other benefits of dental implants include:
They can prevent future tooth loss.
You can replace a single tooth or several teeth with implants.
You will receive a personalized evaluation at our office to ensure that you are a good candidate for the dental implant process.
