As a child, I remember trekking through the woods behind my house in search of the mysterious fountain of youth. Fast forward 30 years and my lower back pain is no indication of a successful quest. Wouldn’t it be nice if our childhood fantasies actually came true? I mean throw us a bone.
At the end of the day, nothing truly lasts forever, but some things last a lot longer than others. So, how does this relate to dental implants? While they can’t last a lifetime, they can outlast you.
Has your mother or father ever said, “this is why we can’t have nice things”? Maybe you dropped your phone or left your windows down in a thunderstorm. The point is things last longer when properly cared for. Dental implants are no different.
Let me ask you a question. If your oil change light came on would you say, “that’s just a recommendation, Ol’ Bessie here can take a few thousand more miles”? Fast forward a few thousand miles and you may find yourself on the side of a highway during rush hour. You then proceed to get your car towed only to have a mechanic judgingly gift you a $3,000 estimate to essentially rebuild your engine. Do you see where I am going with this? Dental implants can certainly outlast you with sufficient brushing, flossing, and the always important visits to our dentists!
