Caring for Your Dental Implants

 

Getting dental implants in Houston could be your best decision towards preserving your oral function, and if you have them now then, congratulations! Your smile should be in for the long haul. And for it to stay that way, we thought we’d give you some tips on how to care for your dental implants to keep them in great condition as long as possible.

If you smoke, then we highly recommend that you consider quitting. This is one habit that could be greatly detrimental to your dental implants because smoking can ultimately affect bone loss and cause a number of complications for the implant.

Keeping your regular dental appointments are important, too. Regular visits to the dentist ensure that the health of the implant and the tissues surrounding it are checked. Getting professional cleaning to reach all the areas you may have missed is not that bad, neither. Regular visits allow us to monitor the development of any disease or infection that could potentially harm the implant and your overall oral condition.

Brush up on your oral hygiene. We have taken all the necessary steps to make sure that your implants were cleaned and handled carefully during the entire installation process, and now it’s time to do your share. Proper dental care like brushing and flossing properly will ensure the longevity of your dental implant. Studies have also shown that using antibacterial toothpaste has a positive effect on implant care, making sure that infections are prevented and bacterial buildup is kept at bay.
