Dental implants are one of the best solutions for tooth loss as they are permanent and look and feel like your natural teeth. If you’ve recently gotten your dental implants, then you’ve come to the right place. David M. Juliani, DDS offers a few tips on how you can take better care of your dental implants
Rinse Your Mouth With Warm Water After Each Meal
Make sure to remove any food particles that may be stuck to your implants after every meal by gargling with either warm water or mouthwash (if possible). Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily are also essential. Visit our clinic and meet with our experts in dentistry in Rochester Hills, MI to ensure that your implants are in good condition.
Smoking can cause damage to your dental implants and increase your risk of gum disease that require dental intervention. If you must smoke, limit it to no more than one cigarette daily. Side effects of smoking, such as yellowed teeth, can be remedied using teeth whitening solutions.
Watch What You Chew
Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, and be careful not to put too much pressure on your teeth when brushing or flossing, especially for a few weeks after your cosmetic dentistry surgery. During this time, stick to soft foods, and cut your food into smaller pieces, making it easier to chew. But you can pretty much resume your typical diet after the healing period.
Unlike when you’ve got Invisalign, dental implants stay on during meal times.
