If you have received dental implants as a solution to your tooth loss ensure you get the best results by taking care of them!
If you have lost one or more teeth and would like a permanent solution to your tooth loss, dental implants may be for you! By utilising a titanium rod that is surgically inserted into your jawbone, at Excellence in Dentistry we can offer you a permanent and fully functional answer to your missing teeth!
If you have already obtained dental implants, it is imperative that you look after them otherwise they simply will not last! Follow these easy tips to ensure your dental implants stay in optimal condition.
1. As you should already – clean your teeth twice daily
No matter how big or small or how many implants you have, they must be treated just as you would treat your genuine teeth. Brush and floss your dental implants at least twice a day.
2. Pay attention while brushing
Brush all your teeth and implants thoroughly and pay attention to back teeth and between your teeth.
3. Visit our dental practice twice a year
As your normal dental schedule should be, those with dental implants should also visit a dentist every six months, as the implants will need professional cleaning and will also need to be checked for proper fit, placement and repair if necessary.
Dental implants can last the rest of your life if taken care of properly. Not only do they help your smile become full again, but they also provide full function and aesthetics to the face – meaning you can eat, drink, talk and laugh with confidence again!
