As we know, most dental problems stem from improper home care or lack of treatment when needed. The same holds true for dental implants in Melbourne. No one can give guarantees because the health of a person is dependent upon many factors which are out of the control of one’s dentist, e.g. proper nutritional needs being met, proper hygiene, genetics, disease processes which might occur. So the dental implant success can be influenced by the way you take care of your implant, oral hygiene and the quality of practitioner that you have chosen to do your implants. But, with proper care, maintenance, and routine dental check-ups, your dental implant can last a lifetime.
