Caring For
Dental Implants

Unlike natural teeth, implants will never decay. So, if you care for them properly, they can last you a lifetime.

About Caring For Your Implants

As you heal following your dental implant surgery, the bone in your jaw will begin to fuse to your implant(s) through a natural process called osseointegration. Once this has taken place, your implants will be fixed and immovable. They will have the appearance, function, and strength of natural teeth. Even better, they will never be at risk for decay and, with proper care, can be expected to last a lifetime.

Following placement, periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implants, teeth, and gums. As with natural teeth, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits, and regular dental visits will help maintain the life of your new implants. Wearing a professionally made nightguard is also a highly recommended protective measure for all patients with implants.

Our implant specialists will provide detailed after-care instructions to help you keep your new implants and gums in good condition.

Please contact us at our dental office for more information about dental implants and how they might benefit you.
