Caring For Your Dental Implant

21st / April / 2017

Dental implants are the perfect solution to keep your dazzling smile intact when a tooth has been lost.

Once the implant has been fitted, a period of healing time is required before the crown can be added. During this time there may be some sensitivity and the area must be avoided when brushing your teeth.
In order to keep the area clean, specialist mouthwashes may be obtainable from your dentist. Once the crown is in place, you can resume your normal dental hygiene routine.

Follow these suggestions to care for your implant and protect your teeth:

  • Regularly brush and floss your teeth, in order to remove food debris and avoid a buildup of plaque. Pay particular attention to the implant and base of the crown when flossing.
  • Visit your dentist regularly to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy.
  • Quit smoking to speed up the healing process and to avoid the risk of developing oral cancer.

Getting dental implants is a great decision that’ll benefit your smile for life.
