Caring For Dental Implants
There’s nothing quite like receiving dental implants. The implants are placed in your mouth to replicate and function just like natural teeth. If you’ve had dental implants placed at our office, you understand how noninvasive the treatment can be. During your visit, our goal is to provide the highest quality care and get you on your way toward eating the food you love as soon as possible.
But after you leave our office, how do you take care of the implants?
First off, every implant at New Albany Implants comes with a 10-year guarantee. Dr. Receveur is an expert in placing these implants and has been able to restore countless smiles over the years. Once you leave our office with your dental implants, the maintenance is easy. But just to ease your confer, here are a few tips to remember while caring for dental implants:
In Your Hands
Teeth supported by dental implants look exactly like natural teeth and increase your chewing ability. Not surprisingly, the care plan for dental implants is not all that different from caring for natural teeth. Just like caring for your natural teeth, it’s important to brush twice a day, floss regularly and visit our office twice a year for cleanings and checkups. Prosthetics can be damaged by plaque just like your natural teeth. For a deeper cleaner, patients can use water flossers – or oral irrigators. These devices use pressurized water to remove plaque from hard-to-reach areas.
Dental implants are a life-changing treatment for patients. Some patients have gone years without teeth. We love seeing the smile on our patients’ faces as they leave our office with a fully restore pair of permanent teeth. Some of you have spent months or years saving for the treatment, which is why we encourage you to be proactive about caring for your implants.
