Do you want your dental implant to last many years? If so, you need to do all you can to keep it strong and in tip-top shape. This means you need to clean and care for it regularly. Our dentist, Dr. Damien Garcia, is happy to help you do so by giving you the tips you need. Those tips are:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s important to brush twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse daily. As you do these things, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, floss that’s easy to use, and antibacterial mouthwash. Taking care of your smile and implant can remove the plaque, bacteria, food particles, and other harmful substances that can potentially damage your implant, teeth, and gums.

-Attend your routine dental checkups: Make sure to visit our office every six months. This is important because the cleaning treatment provided removes the plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your implant, teeth, and gumline. It’s best to remove these substances so you can prevent gum disease.
