Taking care of your dental implants

Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Your implants will require the same care as regular teeth, and Dr. Warren will educate you on the best care. They act just like regular teeth and allow bone to continue to grow, while preserving the integrity of your facial structure and jaw bone.

Steps in taking care of dental implants:

  • Regular brushing → Brushing your teeth at least twice a day allows your gums and teeth to remain clean and healthy.

  • Every day flossing → Flossing removes any food particles in between your gums and dental implants.

  • Routine dental appointment → Keeping your dental appointments prevents any future issues with your teeth and gums.

  • Proficient cleaning 4 times a year → Careful cleaning by your hygienist helps avoid development of gum disease.
