07 Jun Taking Care of Your Dental Implants
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, talk to your Tucson dentist to find out if dental implants are right for you. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss, and are more comfortable and natural-looking than removable dentures or other cosmetic options. After you receive your dental implants, it is important to take good care of them so they last you a lifetime. Here are a few tips for taking care of your dental implants:
Brushing and Flossing
When you have dental implants, you should brush your teeth twice per day and floss every day the same as if you had all of your natural teeth. Keeping your implants clean is key to their overall success. Many dentists recommend using an antibacterial toothpaste to minimize plaque buildup. You can use dental floss as well as interdental brushes to keep the spaces between your teeth clear of debris.
Visiting your dentist regularly is of utmost importance when you have dental implants. In addition to giving your teeth and gums a thorough cleaning, your dentist will check to make sure that your implants look healthy and normal. Some complications with implants can only be recognized by a trained professional, so protect your investment by visiting your dentist.
