Implants that have been used successfully for over 30 years now. With a better understanding of fundamentals and with numerous clinical studies, we expect implants to be 95%+ successful for 30 years and most likely a lifetime.
Just like your real teeth, implants require very careful cleaning each and every day. Regular dental hygiene appointments are important. It is true that implants can't decay, but like natural tooth roots, they are susceptible to periodontal (gum) problems just like real teeth. Smoking is a factor with implant failure and should be discontinued for long term success. Other important factors are the correct placement of the implant in secure bone and a correct bite to minimize stresses on the implants. These decisions are made by the doctor planning your treatment.
