After having dental implants to solve your missing teeth problems, what should you do next? It is easy to assume that since implants and teeth restorations are not “natural” teeth, they will not be susceptible to dental problems. On the contrary, dental implants should be diligently taken care of if you want to enjoy all their benefits for a long period of time. Neglecting to take care of your implant can lead to complicated dental problems which may result to the loss of your beautiful smile once more. Think of your dental implants as you would your natural teeth. This means that you will still need to practice proper personal hygiene. You will still need to regularly brush your teeth to remove any food bits in and around the teeth restoration and the gums. If the gums (which provide support to the implants) become diseased, the implant system underneath will be at risk of being infected, too. Dental floss should also be regularly used to ensure that the areas between the teeth replacements and the gums are thoroughly cleaned. Going for regular check-ups with your Dental Implant Group dentist is necessary for proper implant care. Your dentist or implantologist can meticulously check the implants and your mouth for the earliest signs of dental problems, so that these issues can be treated before they can become even worse. Taking good care of dental implants will prolong their healthy use, and will ensure that you will get to enjoy beautiful smiles for an even longer time.
