Keep your dental implants nice and healthy during the busy holiday time!
Keep up on your oral hygiene – brush twice a day and floss once daily. Use interdental brushes–brushes that slide between teeth—to help clean the hard to reach areas around your dental implant.
If you smoke, quit – smoking can weaken the bone structure and can contribute to dental implant failure.
Avoid chewing on ice and hard foods – we always discourage chewing on ice and hard foods for natural teeth — your dental implants are no different. Both ice and hard foods can crack parts of your dental implant. Don’t take the chance—avoid ice and hard foods.
Come see us – cleanings and exams every six months can help ensure your dental implant is in good condition—with no tartar or plaque accumulating. Twice yearly visits are the best way to protect your dental implant investment.
With just a little time during this busy holiday season, you can keep your dental implants healthy. Keep smiling!
