With the proper care, all-on-four implants should last a lifetime.
If you are considering replacing an entire dental arch with all-on-four implants, you might be wondering how long they last.
The good news is that all-on-4 implants are strong and durable, and a permanent solution to tooth loss.
How long do the implants last?
All-on-four dental implants are made from two parts: the implants, which are placed in the jaw bone, and the artificial teeth that are attached to the implants.
By maintaining good oral hygiene and well-maintained oral health, one can often expect the implants themselves to last a lifetime.
However the prosthetics may wear down quicker. With proper care your artificial teeth can last between 10 and 15 years.
How to take care of all-on-four implant?
It is possible to extend the longevity of your all-on-four implant by maintaining good oral hygiene habits.
It’s important to brush your teeth and floss daily to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean. It’s also a good idea to come in for regular dental check-ups and cleans every six months as this is helpful in preventing issues such as tooth decay and gum disease and maintaining overall oral health.
Another helpful tip is to avoid eating excessive amounts of foods that are particularly hard and crunchy, as these can cause damage to your teeth. Try to also avoid harmful habits such as grinding and clenching your teeth, as well as opening bottles with your teeth.
