Our team at Northwest Center for Dentistry is pleased to offer dental implants to address tooth loss and help patients regain healthy, beautiful smiles. If you are unfamiliar with dental implants, we can provide further information about these amazing dental restorations. We encourage you to clean and care for your dental implant as you would a natural tooth to maintain its quality and appearance.
If you have just had a dental implant placed, you may see some swelling around the gums and jawbone following the procedure. After-care tactics such as using an ice pack on the outer cheek can help you reduce any swelling in just a few days.
Your dental implant relies on having overall good oral health in order to be durable and attractive. This means practicing daily brushing and flossing to clean your dental implant along with the rest of your teeth and your gums. You can even use a special toothbrush that makes it easier to clean the metal posts and teeth in your smile.
The routine dental cleanings and exams that you receive at the dentist twice a year are also vital to keeping your dental restoration healthy and in good function. If you are struggling with harmful dental habits like smoking, tooth grinding or chewing on hard objects, visit the dentist for treatment right away.
