Caring for your dental implants – an important commitment you cannot neglect!

Dental implants are a permanent solution to your tooth loss that restores function and esthetics to your smile… as long as you look after them!

At North Shore Restorative and Implant Dentistry in Long Island, we understand how the loss of a tooth can impact a patient’s self-confidence and esteem. This is why we offer the innovative restorative dental treatment dental implants! Dental implants provide a permanent, solid and durable solution to tooth loss and enable you to eat whatever you like! However, if not taken care of properly, the implants can come loose or even fall out.

Taking care of your dental implants…

Taking care of your dental implants is as easy as maintaining your good oral health routine! Your oral health routine should include:
• Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, with a soft-bristled toothbrush and held at a 45 degree angle: this will help you brush your periodontal tissue (gums) as well as your teeth.
• Floss at least once a day, preferably before sleep: this will help remove excess food debris between your teeth that would otherwise provide a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.
• Visit us at North Shore Restorative and Implant Dentistry every six months to help ensure the health of your teeth and dental implants.
Take care of your dental implants and they will provide you a solid, durable and functional tooth replacement.
