When it comes to dental implant maintenance, following one simple rule can help make the difference between your implant lasting a while and lasting a lifetime. Simply care for your implant as you would your natural teeth. Good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing, are necessary to prevent disease around the implant. There also are products that make cleaning and maintaining your implant easier, which the doctors at DaVinci Dentistry in Southlake, TX, will be happy to discuss with you.
It is also important to return every six months for a checkup and professional cleaning — not just for your teeth, but for your implant, too. This is because dental implants can still develop plaque, just like natural teeth. During the cleaning, we’ll utilize special dental tools made from materials that cannot scratch the implant restoration. And considering our office is one of the only ones in the area with a board-certified prosthodontist, our team has additional knowledge and experience to draw from to help you get the most out of your implants.
Keeping up with dental implant maintenance through good oral hygiene and regular checkups plays a part in determining the lifespan of your implant. At DaVinci Dentistry in Southlake, TX, we are committed to helping you maintain your implant for many, many years to come.
