Have you just gotten a new dental implant placed? Isn’t it thrilling to be able to smile with confidence again and eat all the foods you love? You were hoping your smile would be transformed once that gap in your smile was fixed, and the results exceed your expectations!
Now that you have a beautiful, healthy new tooth, it just makes sense to protect your investment. But you’ve never had a dental implant before, so what’s the best way to maintain it?
Caring for Dental Implants
We agree that dental implants placed in Phoenix, AZ are pretty remarkable, and you only need to follow these three tips to keep them healthy for years to come.
- Follow dentists' orders. At Dental Care at Moon Valley, our team has placed a lot of implants, and wouldn’t send you home without some idea of how to care for yours. Dr. Chad Hines, DDS will provide you with instructions for care immediately after your restoration is placed. For best results and a long and happy life with your implant, follow our dentists’ orders!
- Brush and floss twice a day with a soft toothbrush. This advice doesn’t come as a surprise does it? That’s because we can’t say it often enough. Brushing and flossing equals prevention and prevention equals a healthy smile. Of course your implant restoration won’t decay, but you can develop gum disease that could compromise the implant itself.
- Visit the dentist for regular cleanings and exams. The only way to be sure that your smile is as healthy as it can be is with routine dental care appointments. During your dental exam, we will check the implant to make sure it’s in good shape, and you’ll receive a teeth cleaning to keep gum disease at bay.
