Dental implants are a popular choice when it comes to tooth replacement. This is partially because caring for the implant and crown after placement is simple. That being said, staying on top of implant care is important when it comes to the overall lifetime of your implant. Being sure to use both proper at home care, and keeping up with professional cleanings is the best way to ensure your implant and crown are healthy.
You'll want to stick to brushing and flossing as you would for any other type of dental restoration. Maintaining your preventative care visits are very important. Lack of proper dental cleaning can lead to periodontal issues which can jeopardize the longevity of your dental implant. It is important to properly maintain dental implants so that they can last a lifetime.
