Dental implants can replace missing teeth and give you the confidence to smile again. If you look after your implant properly it can last indefinitely although the crown, which is placed on top, will eventually need to be replaced.
To extend the life of the crown and look after your dental implant, it is essential that you follow the advice of your dentist and maintain a good oral hygiene routine.
– Follow your dentist’s instructions and avoid brushing the site while it heals
– Once the site has healed, gently brush and floss thoroughly to keep the area clean
– Make an appointment to see your dentist if you experience any problems with your implant
Good oral care will help to maintain the lifespan of your crown. Your dentist can assess how well your routine is working at your dental checkups.
