How to care for your dental implant

We’ve talked previously about what a dental implant is, but now how can you protect that investment in your smile?

Caring for a dental implant is fairly simple– just treat it just like one of your natural teeth! Even though your implant cannot get a cavity, it can get plaque buildup. Brush at least twice a day, floss at least once a day, and be sure to visit your dentist at least six months for hygiene appointments. In addition, your dentist may want to see you for specific visits concerning your implant.
