How Do I Take Care of My Dental Implants?

How Do I Take Care of My Dental Implants?
Posted on 08/17/2017

Here at the practice of Drs. Arthur Acker & Nicole Lehninger, many of our patients come to us with a variety of questions related to the field of dentistry. The most common question we get from patients who have received dental implants is actually about how to take care of them properly. As your trusted Venice, FL dentists, we’d like to give you a shockingly simple answer to this popular question.

Taking Care of Your Dental Implants

The great thing about dental implants is that you don’t have to do anything differently! That’s right - taking care of your dental implants is virtually the same as taking care of your natural teeth. Just continue with the following oral hygiene regimen to make sure that your dental implants are properly taken care of:

  • Brush Twice a Day - All patients should brush at least this often. This will help ensure that bacteria growth will be prevented and your teeth won’t succumb to decay or other oral diseases.
  • Floss Daily - Flossing should also be a part of your regular oral hygiene regimen. It will remove any food particles that are trapped between your teeth or dental implants and it will prevent the development of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Visit Your Dentist - Lastly, you’ll want to visit your Venice, FL dentist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings. Your dentist will check your dental implants to make sure that your dental implants are settled in properly and will also provide a teeth cleaning, which is essentially for teeth and gum health – especially after you’ve just had a dental implant placed.
