We realize your dental implant treatment required a significant investment from you, both in terms of time as well as financial. Keep your implants and teeth healthy and longevity by adhering to the following instructions
- Effective home care and hygiene: I recommend flossing and brushing at least twice a day, once in the morning and then again at night. There are a number of different brushes and hygiene tools available. It is best to speak to your dentist or hygienist and see which is the most appropriate for your specific needs.
- Regular dental care: For most patients, a visit to the dentist every 6 months may be adequate. However, considering your new implants and teeth, a follow up every 4 months may be better until recommended otherwise by your dentist.
- Night guard: If you have clenching or grinding habits, a night guard will greatly help to protect both your natural teeth as well as your new implant-supported teeth. See your dentist for a customized night guard.
- Call us immediately if you experience any discomfort like bleeding around the gum tissue, gum swelling, a loosened crown or any other uncomfortable event. Together, with your restorative dentist, we will discover its source and manage it before it becomes a serious problem.
