Proper care for dental implants is similar to the care for the surrounding teeth and is easy to keep up.
Post-Op Care for Dental Implants
After getting a dental implant or implants in your teeth, you may be wondering if there are any extra oral hygiene steps you need to take. While there is not a significant difference from how you take care of your surrounding teeth and a dental implant, there are still a few things you need to know.
Our team can help to go over these steps and provide the post-op care you need for the dental implant and your oral health. After placing the dental implants, you will need to eat softer foods that are easier to chew. There will also be some minor soreness for a few days following the procedure.
When it comes to post-op care for dental implants, you will need to clean your dental implant in the same way you clean your teeth. This will involve brushing the surface of the implant and artificial tooth covering it. By doing so, you can remove bits of food to prevent plaque from forming.
It can also help to floss the spaces along the sides of the implant that connect with the other teeth. While dental implants are durable, they still require checkups and maintenance over time. With regular checkups, we can monitor the condition of the implant and recommend any services when necessary.
We can help you maintain your dental implant with proper care. This way, you can continue to enjoy a full smile and healthy teeth. With our help and proper care, your dental implant will last as long as possible.
