Will dental implants last forever?
If properly looked after, implants can last a lifetime. Depending on how much wear and tear they get and how much force is put on them, the artificial crowns or bridges that are placed on top of the implant may need to be replaced every 10-15 years. The implant itself, beneath the false tooth, should last a lifetime, provided it is not knocked and doesn't develop bone problems around it.
