Care for your Dental Implants


How do you care for your dental implants?  The most important way to care for your dental implants is to maintain excellent oral hygiene.  Caring for teeth restored with dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth.  Proper care of your implants is important to their continued function and good health.

Once healing is complete, dental implants are maintained similarly to natural teeth and should be brushed after each meal. Oral hygiene is accomplished using a conventional soft toothbrush, proxabrush or dental floss. Please follow any specific instructions your oral surgeon or periodontist has given you regarding the maintenance of your implants.

Visiting your prosthodontist for regular checkups (recalls) is also very important.  Dental implants offer patients with permanent tooth loss an excellent alternative to partial or complete dentures. Dental implants can help patients regain natural smiles, increase their comfort and minimize jawbone deterioration that can occur when natural teeth are lost.  Ensure the success of your implants and the overall health of your mouth by practicing good oral hygiene.
