People often wonder how long dental bridges last. However, there is no one correct answer. The longevity of your dental bridge dramatically depends on how well it’s cared for and how often you visit the dentist to ensure its optimal condition.
Your oral care routine, lifestyle, and diet can impact the lifespan of your dental bridge and other oral appliances and devices. According to the Cleveland Clinic, many dental professionals and researchers have also studied the average lifespan, which ranges between five and seven years.
However, practicing excellent oral hygiene and receiving routine dental exams and cleanings can extend the lifespan of your dental bridge to 10 years or more.
The University of Rochester Medical Center agrees that most dental bridges can last longer than ten years––and could even last a patient’s entire lifetime––if the patient maintains excellent oral hygiene and habits.
