Because of the titanium screw bonds directly with your jaw it will last several years, if not a lifetime, when cared for properly. How well you look after your implants and attend regular maintenance appointments will ultimately make the difference on their longevity.
A local anaesthetic will be used so you shouldn’t feel any pain. However, as with any surgical procedure, you might feel some discomfort for a few days- usually due to the stitches and the effects of the normal healing process.
Implants can only be placed once your jaw bone has fully matured and stopped growing so they are not practical for children. Apart from that, as long as there are no other significant risks there is no set age limit.
Certain lifestyle choices- such as smoking or heavy drinking- or for people with a history of gum problems may not be ideal candidates. Of course, the best way to know is to simply make an appointment to talk about it with one of our experts.
