I got my braces removed last month. Now that my teeth are straight, I am ready for a dental implant. I have a tooth that has been missing my entire life. It just never grew in. I know implants are not cheap but I am willing to make the investment. I would like to know how durable they are though. Do they break easily? – Diana
Diana – Dental implants are very durable. They are made of either titanium or zirconia. Although they do not break easily, they should be treated with care, just as you would care for a natural tooth.
Hard objects should not be bitten with an implant tooth. Nor should you use the tooth to open anything that requires force.
When dental implants are properly placed, they withstand normal day-to-day wear.
