Dental implants have the revolutionary, life-changing ability to restore your smile in a way that no other dental tool can. But because the process is so unique, many of our patients have a lot of questions about how to care for dental implants after surgery and for years to come.
At New Albany Implants, we’re more than happy to help! You can learn more about caring for dental implants below, then schedule a consultation at our New Albany, IN office to find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants.
How Dental Implants Restore Your Smile
A dental implant is a small, screw-like post that is placed into your jawbone. They act as replacement tooth roots. Once the implant fuses to your bone, over a period of a few months, replacement teeth are mounted to the implants to restore your smile.
At New Albany Implants, however, we do things a bit more efficiently than most other dentists can. Because of the national and international training, Dr. Ron Receveur and Dr. Bradley Frederick have received, we have the potential to give you a brand new smile in just one day!
A Brand New Smile In Just One Day
At New Albany Implants, we offer The One Day Smile Solution™ which allows us to:
- Use IV sedation to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure
- Remove any failing, decayed teeth
- Place your dental implants
- Attach temporary teeth
Once your dental implants have completely healed and fused with your bone, you’ll come back to receive your permanent tooth restorations.
However, be sure to follow the care instructions below while allowing your dental implants to heal.
Caring For Your Dental Implants
The good news is that dental implants don’t require a lot of special care. And we are so confident in our implants that we offer a lifetime warranty!
It is important to follow basic recommendations for maintaining good oral health for other reasons. You will still want to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Antiseptic mouthwash is another great way to keep bacteria at bay and fight the buildup of plaque.
You should maintain regular checkups with your dentist for dental cleanings. During a checkup, we can make sure everything looks as it should and your mouth is clear of any major issues.
In sum, caring for dental implants is no different than caring for your healthy, natural teeth. Dental implants that are well cared for should last a lifetime, and we’re more than happy to work with you to help make that happen.
