Dental implants are an effective treatment solution for missing or extracted teeth. Teeth are central in ensuring that you can have a bright and full smile. This is because your jawbone and teeth make your face look fuller, and with a full set of teeth, you can smile without feeling shy or fear. However, you can lose your teeth due to some reasons such as an accident or when playing a contact sport. Dental implants can replace your lost tooth, helping you achieve that bright smile that you have always desired. Many people ask how they will care for their implants to ensure that they remain in place for years to come. Our dentists at the practice are knowledgeable and advise their patients on how to care for dental implants.
Avoid acidic foods
Dental implants act as your natural teeth, and you should therefore care for them as you would your teeth. Avoiding acidic foods is necessary because the acids can corrode the implants, weakening them in the process. Eat foods that are rich in minerals and vitamins that can strengthen your gums to sustain your implants.
Regular flossing and brushing
When you get your implants, you should continue with regular flossing and brushing. This will prevent the accumulation of plaque, and therefore minimizing acid formation in your mouth. The flossing and brushing also clean your implants ensuring that they remain in the best possible condition for years to come.
Regular dental visits
You should also continue visiting the dentist's office to get an examination. Our dentists will be able to check the state of your dental implants and adopt corrective action if there are any problems. In this way, you can make sure that your implants are in the best condition at all times.
