If you have just had an implant treatment – congratulations on your new, beautiful smile! You can say goodbye to your missing teeth problems as you confidently flaunt your healthy smile. As you embark on an improved quality of life after suffering from tooth loss, it is important to remember that you will still need to take care of your teeth and implants, the same way that you would with your natural teeth. This is so you can enjoy your healthy smile for an even longer time, without complications or dental problems.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions from your dentist at the Dental Implant Group about how to care for your implants. Listen, and take the time to understand all the instructions & tips that will be given to you by your implant dentist so you can properly care for your implants. Regular tooth brushing is essential in keeping your implants healthy; the gums surrounding the implants are still susceptible to gum problems if the proper oral hygiene is not practised. Flossing is also important so you can keep the area between the teeth restoration and the gum line clean.
Regular visits to your dentist are important as well, to ensure that your implants are kept in good condition. Your dentist can monitor the dental implants, and will be able to detect any problems in their earliest stages. This early detection can help ensure that problems, if any, are treated before they can develop into more complicated conditions.
