How To Take Care of Dental Implants

Posted by Daniel Tebbi on Apr 14 2021, 02:39 AM

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Once in place, they function like prosthetic tooth roots and can support a dental crown, bridge, or denture. They are excellent for replacing one or more missing teeth, correcting bite problems, or supporting dental prosthetics. At Daniel Tebbi, D.M.D, we offer dental implants for restoring missing teeth. We also serve areas including Sherman Oaks 91403, 91495, 91423, Studio City 91604, Van Nuys 91436, 91411, and Reseda 91335.  

Taking care of dental implants will help them look great and last a lifetime. Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth, which include:

1. Eat a Healthy Diet

Healthy eating habits are important for the overall health of your body, including your mouth. A healthy diet should include plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially the ones that are crunchy or can naturally cleanse your teeth. Foods that are high in sugar, starch, and acid should be consumed in moderation and with a meal rather than as a snack to prevent damage to your new dental implants. 

Limit your sugar intake to prevent cavities. Bacteria can stick to your teeth and lead to gum disease.

2. Avoid Hard Foods

Hard foods, such as nuts, can be hard on your teeth. They can crack or chip dental restorations and can also damage your gums. 

3. Practice Good Oral Hygiene Habits

Good oral hygiene habits are important because gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Not only that, but gum disease has also been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other health issues. Just as you have to brush and floss your teeth every day, you also need to take care of dental implants. Brush and floss your teeth with extra care around your dental implant.

4. Quit Smoking

Smoking can cause a variety of health problems, including gum disease, oral cancer, and tooth loss. Because of the serious health risks of using tobacco products, quitting is one of the best things you can do to improve your health.

5. Visit the Dentist Regularly

Visiting your dentist regularly helps remove plaque and tartar buildup, as well as check your dental implant. Your dentist can also check for signs of gum disease, oral cancer, and other health problems, as well as provide you with advice on how to better care for your teeth and mouth.
