Now that you have a dental implant, you can enjoy the functional, beautiful, and strong smile you deserve. But your dental implant will only give you a top-notch smile and oral health if you care for it properly. So, to help you take good care of your dental implant, we encourage you to observe the following wise practices:

– Maintain great oral hygiene: It’s very important to brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, your favorite dental floss, and anti-bacterial mouthwash. Practicing good oral hygiene on a daily basis can help you keep bacteria from attacking and harming your dental implant.

– Attend your maintenance appointments with Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists: It’s important to regularly ensure that your dental implant is in pristine condition. Please be sure to attend your maintenance appointments to help you maintain a strong, reliable, and attractive dental implant for many years.

– Visit your dentist: Even though your dental implant is impervious to tooth decay, it’s still vulnerable to the effects of gum disease. Be sure to receive a professional dental cleaning every six months, so plaque and tartar can be removed from your teeth and dental implant, reducing your chances of gum disease.

Maintaining good oral hygiene, attending your maintenance appointments, and receiving a dental cleaning regularly are all wise commitments that will help you enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile.
