Caring For Dental Implants

Caring For Dental Implants
Posted on 03/15/2017
Dr. Richard Goldberg provides general and cosmetic dentistry services to patients in and around Monroe Township and Spotswood, NJ. One of his specialties is dental implants, to repair and replace missing teeth. They are one of the longest-lasting dental treatments available, and in order to receive them, it’s important that you have healthy gums and adequate bone to support them. Assuming you meet those prerequisites, Dr. Goldberg is a premier choice for the procedure.

Dental implants can look just like your real, natural teeth, but they require both the same and a unique type of care. Below, you’ll find important tips to keep in mind while caring for your new dental implants.

Practice Great Oral Hygiene

While your new teeth are not made up of the same material that real teeth are made from, those teeth still are supported by your gums, which can still attract bacteria and disease if not properly cleaned. Continue to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once daily. Also, use a mouthwash to eliminate bad breath and kill additional bacteria.

Visit Dr. Goldberg’s Office Regularly

Dr. Goldberg will want to keep in touch with you following placement of your new dental implants. Regular dentist visits will allow him to monitor your healing process, check for any complications and make sure your dental restoration is progressing properly. When you have questions, Dr. Goldberg will be there to answer them and give you advice about the best way to care for your new teeth. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Monroe Township, NJ office.

Get The Proper Tools

Cleaning dental implants is different than cleaning your natural teeth because of the material they are made of, and the way they connect to your gums. Dr. Goldberg and his staff will make sure you have the best cleaning tools for successfully caring for your teeth and gums to avoid any infection or gum disease.
