How to Care for Your Dental Implant
Dental implants are a great solution if you have missing teeth. Whether replacing multiple teeth or a singular tooth, it is important to make sure you keep your dental implant well-looked after to make it last as long as possible.
Implants are not infallible, and just like your natural teeth, if they are not cared for correctly, they will become stained and could be chipped.
Here are a few tips from our Solihull dental practice for making sure you look after your implants in the best way you can. To speak to our dentists directly, feel free to call today on 0121 709 3821.
Maintain Good Dental Hygiene
One of the easiest ways to make sure your dental implant is cared for in the best way possible is to stay on top of your dental hygiene routine.
Twice daily brush and flossing are important not only for keeping your natural teeth clean and healthy, but to reduce stains occurring on your dental implant.
Our Solihull dentist and dental hygienists are on hand to offer any assistance should you need any when it comes to your personal dental hygiene.
Regular visits to our Solihull dental practice are a great way for our dentists to take a look at your implant to make sure everything is looking the way it should.
Don’t wait for a problem to arise before booking an appointment – regular check-ups will allow our Solihull dentists to spot any issues nice and early so that they can be solved before potentially developing into something more serious.
Be Careful of What You Eat
As with other dental treatments and services, despite being an excellent long-term solution for missing teeth, it is wise to watch what you are eating and the pressure you apply to your implant to help increase its lifespan.
Particularly crunchy foods or using your teeth to open plastic packaging should be avoided to reduce the likelihood of chipping or breaking your dental implant.
