When you choose to invest in your smile and decide on a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, you might want to know the best ways to care for your new tooth restoration.
Dr Amir and his team have some helpful tips on taking care of your tooth implants and protecting your new smile.
Daily Tooth Brushing and Flossing
The good news is that your dental implant can withstand the same type of brushing and flossing that your natural teeth do. So your home care routine doesn't have to change.
It becomes even more important to keep your teeth and gums healthy and bacteria-free when you have a dental implant. So be sure to brush twice daily and floss once to protect the health of your dental implant,
Avoiding Foods That Are Hard
Just like your natural teeth, foods that are hard could break your implant crown. You don't have to avoid these foods; instead, we recommend cutting foods like apples, carrots, or hard bread into smaller, bite-size pieces to protect both your natural teeth and your dental implant crown from fractures or damage.
Routine Tooth Examinations
Visiting your dentist in Pascoe Vale every six months for examinations will also help keep your dental implant healthy and functioning well. Dr Amir can spot problems early on with yearly x-rays and exams so you can be proactive about any problems with your tooth implant.
