Dental Implants

A dental implant is a helpful replacement if you have lost a tooth or a few teeth. The implant itself is a type of metal post that is affixed to the jaw bone. Once the post is there, a cap that mimics the hardness, shape, and feeling of a tooth is placed on top of the post.

Maintenance after Surgery

If cared for correctly, dental implants can last a lifetime. Once your dental implant procedure has happened, take care not to strain your mouth. You will want to eat soft, lukewarm foods in order to avoid straining the site of the new implant. You will also want to ensure you are staying hydrated and not drinking anything abrasive like alcohol.

While you will have to refrain from brushing the area for a few days, a warm, saltwater rinse will be extremely helpful to help keep bacteria from growing at the implant site. Once the implant has healed and you are feeling well, slowly begin regular dental habits once again.

Caring for the cap will be the same as caring for natural teeth. You will want to be sure to brush and floss twice a day in order to keep natural buildup off of the new tooth — just as you would with your other teeth.

Please let us know if you have any questions about your procedure and how to properly care for your new implants. To set up your appointment or to speak to a member of our team, please give us a call at +1 (480) 981-1755.
