Dental implants consist of a titanium post that is inserted in the jaw and a crown placed on top. They mimic natural teeth but can they last a lifetime?
– Yes, with proper oral care, dental implants can last a lifetime; the titanium post is permanent but the crown.
– Crowns can get broken due to teeth-grinding and trauma from sports activities and falls.
– Safeguard your teeth by wearing a mouth-guard to sports and during sleep (for teeth grinders).
If you have cracked dental implants, visit the dentist immediately.
