How Long Do Mini Dental Implants Last?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he explains the longevity you can expect from mini implant-retained teeth with proper home care.

Mini dental implants are a long-lasting solution that, for most individuals—virtually everyone, in fact—can endure a lifetime. The key to their durability also relies on your personal oral care routine, which includes brushing, flossing, and using a water pick. Additionally, regular dental check-ups every three to six months are essential for us to perform comprehensive cleanings. Cavities and gum disease are primarily caused by bacterial infections, emphasizing the importance of keeping harmful bacteria off your teeth.

An advantageous aspect of implants and the replaced teeth is that they are impervious to cavities. However, it’s worth noting that there is a small minority of people who may develop gum disease, even around their natural teeth or implants. Although this occurrence is less common with implants, it underscores the significance of maintaining consistent oral hygiene practices at home and attending regular dental cleanings. By adhering to these practices and seeking routine professional care, you can greatly enhance the likelihood of mini dental implants lasting you a lifetime and maintaining the health and beauty of your smile.
