Following your dental implant placement, we will give you specific aftercare instructions. Our Prescott Valley dentists will advise you on dietary restrictions, cleaning instructions, and more, so that you can enjoy an effective and comfortable recovery.
Maintaining an oral hygiene routine is the secret to a healthy smile! Besides your semi-annual checkups, most of the good work is done at home. Forgetting to brush and floss regularly not only threatens your natural, healthy teeth, but can endanger your implants, as well by creating an environment where disease-causing bacteria can live. Take care of your smile and it’ll stay beautiful for a long time to come.
Whether you’ve had one dental implant placed or a full bridge, maintaining your gum tissue is especially important. To ensure the long-term success of your dental implants, we recommend cleaning the space between the gums and your restorations. This will dislodge any bacteria that gets trapped beneath your implant over the day. We also recommend using an interdental brush to clean below the restoration every night.
Even if you received your dental implants years ago, it’s critical that patients pay close attention to any changes in their gums. Infection and gum recession around the implant post are important indicators of more significant oral health problems that can ultimately cause your dental implant to fail. If you notice changes to your smile, call our dentists in Prescott Valley immediately. We’ll bring you in and check your smile for signs of damage.
At Larson Dental, we want out patients to enjoy beautiful, healthy dental implant treatment for a lifetime. To learn more about the best way to care for your dental implants, be sure to call our implant dentist in Prescott Valley.
