One of the major advantages of dental implants is the fact that they can indeed be a lifelong solution for your lost tooth or teeth. The materials that dental implants are made of are also found in biologically-compatible materials such as artificial knees, hips, or other prosthetic appliances. Their construct, and compatibility with the human body allow for more longevity, as well as the fact that they fuse with the bone after the implant procedure. In more ways than one, they become like an extension of your body.
Relying on the materials used, and the procedure itself, however is not enough in the vast majority of cases to make dental implants a lifelong solution. An important part of promoting longevity in your dental implants is to provide ongoing proper care and maintenance. Just like real teeth, they need to be brushed and flossed regularly.
