What’s the best way to care for my dental implants?

Woman Smiling at Dentist | Dental Implants in Fairfax VADental implants are the standard of care for missing teeth, so congratulations on your choice! Fortunately, once you have gone through the process from implant placement to restoration, they are no more difficult to take care of than your natural teeth.

How Dental Implants Work

The critical thing to know about your implant, though, is that it gains its strength from the dense bone in your jaw that holds it securely in place. Your responsibility now is to be vigilant about oral hygiene to avoid gum disease that causes the bone to deteriorate around the implant and can lead to its failure.

So care instructions for your new dental implant in Fairfax are pretty basic; brush twice a day and floss once to keep the implant tooth clean and free from plaque. Be sure to pay special attention to all sides of the implant tooth to avoid a buildup of bacterial plaque that can lead to gum disease and threaten your implant.
