Dental implants look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. And like your natural teeth, your implants can accumulate plaque and tartar. This makes it important that you continue to practice good oral hygiene at home and visit your dentist regularly for preventive care. Your implants can be cared for exactly the same way as your original teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. Our dentist may also recommend oral hygiene aids such as antimicrobial mouth rinses, interdental brushes or Waterpiks. We will also examine your implant during your regular visits, including taking X-rays as needed, to ensure that your mouth is healthy and that your implant is continuing to function properly. We recommend that you come in for an appointment at our office every six months, though a more frequent schedule may be recommended if necessary.
