Tips To Care For Dental Implants

Dental implants have proven they can last a lifetime with proper dental hygiene maintenance. Below are a few tips to keep your dental implants and entire smile healthy:

Brush twice a day

While dental implants do not get tooth decay, they can accumulate food particles, bacteria, and plaque which can lead to a dental infection around the dental implant. This infection can lead to bone loss and possible loss of your new implant..   

Floss once a day

Flossing is not a fun activity for most but it gives a great benefit to a long lasting smile. Cleaning in between and around your teeth and implants will keep harmful bacteria at bay.

Avoid abrasive products

Choose a soft bristled toothbrush along with an ADA approved toothpaste for best results.

Watch What You Chew

Dental implants restore your chewing ability to enjoy your favorite foods. However, that does you should crunching down on ice, candy, or pencils (avoid with natural teeth too!).

Quit smoking

Smokers have a higher risk of dental implant failure. Dr Perrone will recommend quitting smoking prior to dental implant placement for greatest chance of success.

Treat Your Teeth Grinding Or Clenching

Excessive teeth grinding or clenching can place undue stress on your natural teeth and  implants. Talk to cosmetic dentist Marielaina Perrone DDS about fabricating a custom dental nightguard.
