Because dental implants are placed in the jawbone, artificial replacement teeth attached to implants look and act much like natural teeth.
Like natural teeth, implants need to be kept clean using a toothbrush and floss. Your dentist will show you the proper cleaning procedure for implants. Regular dental checkups are important so your dentist can make sure that your bite is right and that your implants are not loose.
After all, implant restorations are a long-term investment in your smile, your health and your well-being, so let’s do our best to protect your investment.
