How Long do Dental Implants Last? Atlanta, GA
Implanta and Bone Grafting Atlanta GA

If you’ve had teeth replaced in the past, you know that all good things must come to an end at some point. Even the most durable partial dentures, flippers, or dental bridges can gradually wear out and need to be replaced. Although there are steps you can take to extend their lifespan, rarely do those conventional measures last more than 10-20 years.

On the other hand, there are dental implants. The success rate and integrity of implants make them the only dental procedure that has the potential to last an entire lifetime. Yes, you read that correctly. When properly maintained, an estimated 98% of implants could last for the rest of the life of that patient.

But how?

One aspect that makes implants so successful is their ability to facilitate osseointegration with the bone around them. When placed, your body’s surrounding bone cells form new bone, permanently fusing themselves onto the surface of the ribbed implant. In time, this process fuses the implant into place and makes it a “permanent” part of your smile.

Implants can’t get cavities. As long as you’re cleaning around them properly and are keeping the surrounding tissues healthy, there’s little risk of the implant coming loose or falling out. Routine cleanings, brushing, and flossing are all you need.

Investing in dental implants is one of the best ways to protect your smile’s future. At Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, we provide a wide variety of implant services, therapies, and restorations. We can help you find the most appropriate option for your oral health needs.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
