But as any dentist will tell you, implants require the same level of care that you'd normally give your teeth. Your mouth will be sore for a few days after the implant goes in, it's just healing, this is perfectly natural. Don't brush the implant during this time, your dentist will give you a mouthwash to help keep your mouth clean.
Here are three steps to take care of your implant:
- Don't smoke: smoking greatly inhibits the ability of the mouth to heal itself, and could lead to infection, not to mention the increased risk of oral cancer.
- Always floss carefully: it's vital to remove food from around the implant and under the crown, this may need a bit more attention than usual.
- Brush your teeth twice a day: your mouth still needs the same level of care it always has.
Look after your implant and it will serve you ell, and remember:
You’ll also need to visit the dentist just like you do for your regular smile.
