Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement treatment; they restore full function to the mouth, as well as giving you a healthier, more attractive looking smile. Dental implants are designed to last for several years, but they do require a little looking after. Our friendly Sparkle Dental dentists will explain how to look after your dental implants to ensure that you get the best out of them and they last for as long as possible.
Dental implants are small titanium screws, which are inserted into holes in the jaw bone to replace the root section of a missing tooth. Implants are a popular treatment because they last for a very long time and they offer unrivalled levels of functionality; they also help to reduce bone loss.
Implants are designed to integrate into the jaw bone and once this process (known as osseointegration) is complete, a new restoration can be attached.
Once the implants are in place, it is important to look after them, as you would look after your natural teeth. Implants are susceptible to plaque build-up and this can affect your overall oral health, as well as the success of treatment. It is important to take good care of your implants; we can offer advice about specialist cleaning and hygiene products, which are easier to use than traditional brushes and we also recommend inter-dental brushes, which remove plaque from the cracks between the teeth.
In addition to good oral hygiene, dental visits are also very important and we encourage all our patients to attend routine check-ups every 6 months. If you have any problems with your implants or you experience symptoms such as tooth pain or bleeding gums, please arrange an appointment as early as possible, rather than waiting for your next scheduled check-up.
If you have any questions about dental hygiene or caring for your implants, our dentists and dental hygienists will be happy to help at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Ealing.
