How long do implants last? Can my implant fall out?
When properly taken care of, implants an last for many decades if not a lifetime!
Many of our patients ask us if their dental implant can fall out. No -- implants consist of a crown attached to a permanent titanium post set in the jaw. Your implant will not fall out or move like you may have experienced with dentures. You can treat your implant like a normal tooth. This is just one of the reasons that dental implants are such a popular treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants are attached during a surgical procedure, and your dentist will attach a full crown to the implant once it has completely healed, and bonded to your jaw. This makes it impossible for the implant to fall out!
