Dental implant treatment has become an increasingly popular solution over recent decades, especially when it comes to those who have suffered from missing teeth and the side effects that accompany them for long periods of time due to other options being unsuitable. They are widely hailed as a perfect, permanent solution - but is this really the case? In this article, we take a closer look at how long dental implants last. When are dental implants recommended?

One of our patients, Marcus, has had his fair share of visits to Field House Dental Practice recently. This followed decades of avoiding the dentist for check-ups and treatment. Marcus has kindly put together a timeline of his dental history to show just how much his teeth have improved since he has been coming to see us. 1959 The year I was born. 1968 This was the last time I had physical work done on my teeth for almost 40 years. 2009 After my family were constantly nagging me for many years, I decided to go for a dental check-up. Despite me preparing the dentist about my aversion to the dental trade and me being a quivering wreck on the day, I felt there was no effort to alleviate my fears. I was told that my teeth were a mess and much work was needed. I never returned to any...
