Caring For Your Dental Implant
Congratulations! You've chosen a dental implant to replace your missing tooth and restore your smile, and in doing so you've invested in the best replacement option that dentistry has to offer. Dental implants in Maryland Heights are an aesthetically pleasing and durable way to restore form and function to your smile. Implants are so successful because they replace both your root and your tooth, and they function just as your natural tooth would. With the right care, your dental implant can potentially last a lifetime. Here's some more information about caring for dental implants.
Excellent Home Care
One of the greatest benefits your dental implant offers is that it closely mimics your natural tooth, which means that you'll be able to brush and floss your implant as you would any of your other teeth. It's important that you take good care of your implant by keeping it clean and plaque free in order to ensure it's success. Your dental hygienist can offer tips and techniques for optimum home care.
Regular Dental Visits
Your dentist will check your implant at your regular dental visits. Having your dental implant checked through regular examinations and x-rays will ensure that your bone is healthy and your implant is functioning properly.
