Dental implants from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ can last a lifetime, but patients have an important role to play. Taking care of the new implant is essential!
Dental implants, remember, are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw to support artificial teeth. Because they are so secure in the jaw, they have become the tooth replacement option of choice.
Brush and Floss
Taking care of implant-supported teeth is not much different than taking care of natural teeth. Since bacteria and plaque can build up on an artificial crown just like on a tooth, it must be cleaned daily. We recommend brushing and flossing twice a day.
Caring for a single-tooth implant involves:
- Brushing at least twice a day
- Using a soft-bristle toothbrush and low-abrasive toothpaste (we can recommend one)
- Thoroughly brushing the crown
- Flossing with unwaxed dental tape
- Using an oral irrigator
Regular checkups at our office as also important. These will include cleanings with a hygienist.
By taking good care of the implant and crown, you can avoid failure and implant loss. At Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ we provide single-tooth dental implants and implant dentures, and have placed them in patients from Peoria, Surprise, and Sun City West. They appreciate our all-inclusive pricing, lifetime warranty, free second opinions, and in-office discount plan. Please call us to schedule an appointment today!
