Top Oral Care Tips for IMPLANTS
Most dental implants are successful, and there are a few steps you can take to help ensure success and make your implant last.
1.Practice good oral hygiene – brush twice a day and floss once daily. Using interdental brushes, brushes that slide between teeth, can help clean the hard to reach areas around your implant.
2.Quit smoking – smoking can weaken the bone structure and can contribute to implant failure.
3.Visit your dentist – cleanings and exams every six months can help ensure your implant is in good condition, and that it stays that way.
4.Avoid chewing on hard foods – don’t chew on hard items such as ice and hard candy because they can break the crown and your natural teeth.
