What Are Dental Implants? Dental Implants are a unique tooth restoration method because they are customized and designed to function and feel just like your natural teeth. Also, in addition to be the number one permanent missing teeth solution if cared for properly they can last a lifetime making them a worthwhile investment.

How To Care For Your Dental Implants:

  1. Remember to Floss Although, it’s important to be sure that you are brushing properly and on a regular basis it’s also very important to be sure that you are flossing properly. Flossing allows you to reach the areas around your dental implants where your normal toothbrush and standard teeth brushing won’t allow you to reach.

  2. Use Mouthwash After you have thoroughly brushed your teeth and then flosses your teeth the next step would be to use mouthwash. Preferably this mouthwash should be antibacterial so that it can target any of the leftover and unwanted bacteria that is still lurking around in your mouth and provide you with a good clean.

  3. Use the Right Toothpaste Using the right toothpaste is highly important to the maintenance and care of your dental implants. This is because while your dental implants are not susceptible to tooth decay if not cared for properly, they can cause you to have issues with your gum tissue so it’s important to use gum protectant toothpaste.
