If you chose dental implants in Pompano Beach to replace your missing teeth, congratulations! You made a good decision. Many people prefer dental implants to other tooth replacement solutions because they want something permanent. True enough, dental implants are made to last a lifetime. Although much of the success of dental implants rely on the skills, experience, and expertise of your dentist, how you care for your dental implants at home play a role in the long-term success and longevity of your implants.
Although dental implants are artificial, they share almost all the same features as natural teeth. The nature of how they are implanted in your jawbone makes them look and function like natural teeth. Therefore, it makes sense that how you care for your dental implants is just the same as how you care for your real teeth. Furthermore, they will stay in shape if your jawbone and gum tissues are healthy because these are where your implants are securely anchored. When these two are compromised, dental implant failure is more likely to happen.
Caring for your dental implants is simple and straightforward. You just need to brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush twice a day for two minutes. Don’t forget to floss your teeth (including your implants) daily and rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash. If you’re a smoker, now is the best time to quit. Minimize your consumption of food and drinks that are high in carbs, sugar, and starches. Finally, make it a point to visit your dentist every three to six months for professional teeth cleaning.
