Dental implants are strong and reliable restorations that can last for a lifetime—but only if you take good care of them. So, please make sure to do all you can to keep your implant in tip-top shape. Some things you can do include:

Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s very important to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. You can do these things with a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, your favorite dental floss, and antibacterial mouthwash. Oral hygiene can help you keep bacteria away from attacking and harming your implant daily.

Attend your maintenance appointments: If you want to have a top-notch dental implant and smile, then you need to attend your implant maintenance appointments. This is important because Dr. Betzy Lara-Perdue and Dr. Brooke Kennedy can perform any treatments necessary to ensure a strong and reliable replacement tooth.

Visit your dentist: Unfortunately, your dental implant is still vulnerable to gum disease. So, it’s important to visit our dentists for a routine cleaning. The cleaning can remove the disease-causing plaque and tartar from the faces of your teeth and implant, reducing your chances of falling victim to the disease.

If you do these things, you’ll be on the right track toward the strong and top-notch dental implant you deserve.
