So you’ve finally completed your dental implant surgery with Glendale, AZ’s Dr. Dallas Steele. Congratulations! Dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing one or more missing teeth, and we’re sure you now have a smile you can’t wait to show off. It looks great, but how do you care for that new hardware? We’ve got some advice for your new pearly whites — the following are some tips on caring for dental implants from Dr. Steele, your Glendale, AZ family dentist.
Love Your New Teeth Just Like The Rest of Your Smile
Yes, your dental implant and the replacement that fits on top feel a little different from your natural teeth at first, but that doesn’t mean that they require any different sort of care when it comes to the basics: brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist every six months. Your dentist may recommend an additional cleaning aid for your unique mouth, too.
Your new teeth are just like the old ones when it comes to what keeps them healthy, so make sure you’re maintaining your excellent hygiene habits after your dental implant surgery. That means brushing for two minutes, twice a day, flossing once a day and visiting the dentist twice a year. This routine will help you keep your teeth healthy and fresh for years to come.
Your Dentist’s Role in Caring for Your Dental Implants
Your dental implant procedure may be complete, but that doesn’t mean Dr. Steele is out of the picture yet. You can feel comforted knowing he’s there for you during aftercare, too. The team at Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry will work with you on the best care plan for you, your mouth and your schedule, and we’ll set you up with a series of follow-up visits to make sure your teeth, mouth and gums are staying 100 percent healthy.
Help Your Dental Implants Last a Lifetime
While your teeth that have been restored by dental implants can’t get cavities, they’re subject to the same wear-and-tear as your natural teeth. Help keep them healthy by maintaining excellent oral health and hygiene — as well as good health overall — and it’s very likely you’ll be able to enjoy your dental implants for your lifetime.
