I am reading on this forum about the implants wearing out after a time :mrgreen: :evil: . Is there an expected lifetime for implants?

no. there is no magic wear out time. however many posts and videos suggest 20-25 years when 2x per week or so. But like any other mechanical device are prone to wear out and fail. The replacement is free as I know it. I recently had my implant (oct 15,2018). I am relieved that I have something that works. if there any further concerns I can help you with you can PM me. we are praying for you during this journey.
