How Long ESTEEM Dental Implants Last

Dental implants are synthetic tooth roots made of biocompatible titanium that, over time, bind to your jawbone. With over 95% of implants lasting at least ten years, they provide a very successful treatment for tooth loss. Learn how dental implants can transform your smile and endure the test of time. 

Factors That Affect The Lifespan Of Dental Implants

We’ll examine these factors more closely, including your general health, dental hygiene practices, way of life, and even the implant’s quality. Learn more so you can make wise decisions and extend the life of your dental implants.

Caring for Your Dental Implants Over the Long Run

To keep your dental implants healthy and effective, proper maintenance is essential. We’ll walk you through basic dental hygiene procedures like brushing, flossing, using an antimicrobial mouthwash, and scheduling routine dental exams. You can make sure that your implants will sparkle for many years to come by creating a thorough maintenance schedule.

Increasing The Lifespan Of Your Dental Implant Via Lifestyle Choices

Learn how your lifestyle choices may affect how long your dental implants last. We’ll discuss how adopting a healthy lifestyle can encourage implant health at its best, while bad habits like smoking and binge drinking can shorten their lifespan. Give yourself the tools you need to protect your investment and maintain your confidence over time.

Follow Your Dental Implant Aftercare Instructions

The long-term success of an implant depends on proper placement and upkeep. We’ll emphasize the value of routine dental exams, cleanings, and early problem diagnosis. In order to keep your implants in top shape, we’ll also give you important aftercare recommendations, including food suggestions during the healing period.

Follow Your Specific Dental Implants Post-Surgical Directions

Follow post-surgery instructions: After getting dental implants, Dr. Eric Benefield will provide you with specific post-operative instructions. These instructions are crucial for proper healing and to avoid complications. Follow them diligently, including prescribed medications, diet recommendations, and oral hygiene practices.

Maintaining Good Dental Hygiene

You must practice good oral hygiene. Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is vital for the health of your dental implants. Brush your teeth at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Pay special attention to the areas around the implant and gumline. Use a gentle circular motion to clean thoroughly without damaging the gums.

Be sure to floss daily! Dental implants require flossing, just like natural teeth. Use a floss threader or specialized implant floss to clean between the teeth and implants. This will help remove plaque and food debris from hard-to-reach areas and prevent gum disease.

Use the right mouthwash. Rinse with an antimicrobial, non-alcoholic mouthwash to reduce the number of bacteria in your mouth. This will help prevent infection around the implant site and promote healing.

Some Things You Should NOT Do

Avoid harmful habits: Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as they can negatively impact the healing process and increase the risk of implant failure. Additionally, refrain from chewing on hard objects or using your teeth to open packages, as this can put unnecessary stress on the implants.

Watch For Warning Signs And Call Us If You See Them

Be aware of warning signs: If you experience any pain, swelling, or discomfort around the implant site, or if the implant feels loose, contact us at Grand Dental immediately. Early intervention can prevent more significant problems.

By following these guidelines and maintaining good oral hygiene practices, you can enhance the longevity and success of your dental implants, giving you a confident and healthy smile for years to come. Always consult Dr. Benefield if you have any specific concerns or questions about caring for your dental implants.

Featured Testimonials


“I chose Dr. Benefield after researching dentists in Grand Junction following a move from Arizona. I needed extensive work, including implants and a bridge. We discussed the cost and the time frame (about a year). After an exam, he quoted me a price for the total package. I could not have made a better choice. The whole staff are super careful about the pandemic, as well as very caring and professional. Dr. Benefield, (known in the office as ‘Dr Eric’), has worked diligently with me for the past 8 months and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He obviously enjoys what he does and makes every effort to make it as painless as possible.” ~ Jean
