How to Care for Your New Dental Implant

If you recently had dental implants in our St. Paul dental office, or you are currently undergoing dental implant treatment, you know the value of having your smile back again. Now that you can eat all of the foods you love again, taking care of that dental implant is likely a priority for you.

We want you to get the most out of your dental implants, so here is some advice on how to best look after your new dentistry.

Don’t Skip Dental Appointments

Your regular preventive dental appointments are the best insurance policy to protect your smile. Missing even just a few of them makes it possible for oral conditions like decay or gum disease to take hold and undermine the health of your dental implant.

Dental exams and cleanings are often the least expensive dental procedures and will pay off for many years to come.

Brush Your Teeth and Floss Your Teeth Without Fail

The white biofilm that collects on teeth between brushings is called plaque, and if it is not removed right away, it hardens into tartar. Tartar will not be removed with brushing and flossing alone. Only your hygienist can remove tartar using precision dental instruments and an ultrasonic scaler.

As we age, enamel thins, so maintaining oral health will require more diligent home care to keep your smile healthy.

Avoid Gum Disease

If you notice bleeding when you brush and floss, be sure to let us know right away by calling to book an exam and cleaning.

Periodontal disease, also called gingivitis, is the leading cause of tooth loss – and the loss of dental implants. When detected early, gum disease is sometimes reversible. Our team at Highgrove Dental Care will help you get the most out of your dental implants, call today for your consultation.
