How do dental implants feel?
Implants feel virtually like your normal, natural teeth. However, since they are artificial they have little to no sensation, which means they feel a bit different than your normal teeth. Often, they can be cleaned and flossed just like normal teeth. If you had dentures or dental bridges in the past, you will find that dental implants feel much better, and more like real teeth, than those other dental alternatives.
How long do dental implants last?
If properly maintained and cared for, a dental implant screw can last for a very long time. Sometimes the screw portion can last the rest of your life. The crown, or top of the implant, is subject to normal wear and tear just like your normal teeth. Therefore, they may require periodic maintenance. If you are concerned about the wear on your dental implants, you can always speak to one of our Lane and Associates Durham team members and we can examine them for you.
