How do I care for my dental implants?

Caring for teeth restored with dental implants is just like caring for your natural teeth: brush, floss and maintain regular dental cleanings and check-ups, as scheduled. Additional cleaning aids also may be recommended to help you keep your teeth healthy at home.

As is the case with natural teeth, you and your dentist must work as a team to ensure the longevity of your dental implant.  While replacement teeth can't get cavities, they are subject to the same wear-and-tear as natural teeth. Well-placed and cared for dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime.
