What is the lifespan of dental implants?

Can you help me please.I have very big problem with my teeths,I didn't treat them right from my early ages.They are in a mess now. I was reading about dental implants so I am about to explore more about it. If you can tell me something what can help me to decide. Is it good or bad? How long the implants can last.I am 20 years old and my bad teeths make me feel so uncomfortable to be in my skin,I really want new teeth so I can have always a big smile and confidence. Also I would like to know does the implant look naturaly? And how much would it cost ,I would like a total treatment ?

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your query in case if you have bad/ decayed teeth then treatment is decided depending upon the severity of decays as well as whether there is need to extract the teeth to place the implants or the teeth can be conserved with treatment..

As far as implants are concerned, yes they are among the best treatments in case if you loose your teeth and looks more natural as compared to other fixed treatments like bridges and crowns..
The charges depends upon the type of implants as well as the region where you are put up..It is however in a range between about 10,000 to about 15,000..
In case if you do not have any medical conditions or bone elated problems, implants tend to last for long durations of about fifteen to twenty years..
My suggest for you would be to consult a dentist and get evaluated and if you have multiple decayed teeth get a full mouth x ray done..
Once the x ray is done you will be advised appropriate treatments and it will be better to get your natural teeth conserved with treatments like root canal treatment..
In case if any of the tooth needs extraction, then considering your age it will be best to go for implant placement..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards..
