How Do I Care For Dental Implants?
The dentists at Westermeier Martin Dental Care, serving Buffalo, New York get asked all the time, “how do I care for dental implants?” Because Westermeier Martin Dental Care dentists are experienced in dental implant procedures and host free dental implant seminars, it’s only natural our patients ask us.
We have been performing dental implant procedures for many years. When a patient opts for a dental implant, they know they are making an investment in their smile that will literally last a lifetime as long as the implant is cared for properly.
Smoking poses a risk to dental implants. Smoking can lead to implant-related complications following the procedure.
Careful attention to dental hygiene, following a dental implant procedure, is important to your overall health. Thoroughly clean and care for your implant during all stages of the treatment. Before you leave our office we explain what you should do to maintain oral health during and after the procedure.
Whether you have a single dental implant or a full set you need to visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Your dentist or dental hygienist will let you know how frequently you should schedule check-ups, but you should plan on every three or six months at a minimum. During the dental check-ups, your implants, teeth and gums will be checked and your dental hygienist will professionally clean your teeth.
Brushing and flossing your teeth is important and should be done at least twice daily. Dental check-ups and examinations should be performed regularly. If you’re searching for a new dentist, we are accepting patients at both our East Aurora and our Amherst offices. We make switching dentists as painless as we make our dental procedures.
Ask us about sedation dentistry. It is a service we offer our high-fear, low pain threshold patients, free of charge. We are a judgement free dental practice that wants to know, “how can we make you smile today?”
Attend one of our free Dental Implant Seminars to learn more about the procedure and to meet our dental staff and tour our offices.
