Do dental implants require any special care?
Dental Implants Feel Like Real Teeth
One of the key features that makes us so excited about dental implants is how incredibly similar they are to your own teeth! They look like real teeth, they feel like real teeth, they function like real teeth, and you even care for them like real teeth.
Twice daily brushing, daily flossing, and regular examinations and professional cleanings are all that it takes to keep your dental implants looking great.
Dental implants do not decay in the way that natural teeth do; however, they can build up plaque and tartar. If this build-up isn’t removed through brushing, flossing, and regular cleanings at our Kirkland dental office, you can still develop cavities in your natural teeth or gum disease.
Routine Maintenance is Important
Even with implants, you need to continue visiting our office for routine cleanings and examinations. Dr. Kim will keep an eye on your implants to make sure that they are in great shape. She will also watch your other teeth to help prevent potential problems.
Regular cleanings are the foundation of good dental care. Even though Dr. Kim is skilled at treating many dental problems, she’d still prefer to prevent them whenever possible!
Dental implants represent an investment in your dental health, and we’ll help you protect that investment.
