Post-Dental Implant Care
Are you in the Round Rock area and considering dental implants? Old Settlers Dental is here to help!
Having a dental implant is a great way to restore your smile after the loss of your tooth. Most dentists will tell you that it is one of the most long-lasting and convenient ways to replace a missing tooth and will recommend dental implants to you, just as they would to their own friends and family because they know the many benefits.
As with all dentistry, caring properly for your dental implant is essential to ensure its longevity and success. The good news is that dental implants are convenient and pretty easy to care for, making them a great choice for patients who want to avoid the special care that a dental bridge requires.
Brush your teeth – Brush all of your teeth, including your dental implant, at least twice a day using the proper technique. Don’t brush too hard, as this can damage your gum tissue. Instead, use the tips of the bristles to gently clean your teeth and gums, covering every area and angling your brush at the gumline to remove the plaque that collects there.
Floss your teeth – Flossing is essential to gum health. Floss at least once a day on both sides of your tooth and at the very back of your mouth.
Go to the dentist – Even with the best home care, dental visits are still an important part of your oral care routine. Your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and your dental implant to ensure good health. Your dental hygienist will clean the tartar that collects between dental appointments so that a gum infection does not develop.
