Tips to Care for Dental Implants
Dental implants are your best choice to replace missing teeth. But you must take good care of dental implants to ensure they last a very long time.
– Take extra care when flossing to ensure removing food debris underneath the crown and at the top of the implant.
– Quit smoking to promote healing and prevent infection. (Also, smoking increases the risk of oral cancer.)
– Brush your teeth including the implants at least twice daily to keep then clean and healthy.
You should also visit your dentist regularly to ensure your dental implants are doing great. Your crown will need to be replaced eventually, so your dentist can examine your implants during your visit and let you know how you’re doing with your oral care.
