Dental implants are becoming an increasingly common solution for people with missing teeth. Dental implants have several benefits over dentures, including ease of care. If your dentist in San Jose has suggested a tooth implant, watch this video to learn how to keep it clean.
Caring for a dental implant is much like caring for your natural teeth. You should brush and floss your implant like you do your other teeth, and remember to see your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Pay close attention to flossing and brushing along the gum line to prevent food and bacteria from getting trapped under the crown of the implant. Consider carrying a pick with you so you can dislodge food that gets trapped when you’re on the go.
