Dental Implant Care

Dental Implants are becoming the method of choice for replacing missing teeth. They are especially helpful when only one tooth needs replacement. For those who are missing several teeth and need dentures, implant supported dentures provide more stability and security than traditional dentures. Implants also make it possible to have a dental bridge when it otherwise may not be advisable.

Restoring your smile with dental implants can make a huge difference in your appearance and self-confidence. Dental implants are an important investment in your oral health and maintaining them will ensure they give you years of excellent service.

Keeping Your Implant Clean

Although special care is not required to maintain the health of your implant, there are steps you can take to make sure it stays healthy. Brushing your teeth with an appropriate toothbrush is important. Many dentists now recommend electric toothbrushes because they clean the teeth and gums much better than manual brushes. Studies show that people who use electric brushes have better oral health. Gums are healthier, teeth have less decay and those individuals also keep their teeth longer.

Dental implants are similar to natural teeth in that food debris and bacteria can be trapped around them. Adequately brushing and flossing will keep the area clean. Using an electric toothbrush may provide additional protection by cleaning better than you can with a regular toothbrush.

Prevent Plaque Accumulation

Flossing helps keep the gums free from food particles and prevents the buildup of plaque. If plaque is allowed to accumulate around the implant, gum disease could develop and affect the stability of the implant, causing it to fail.

Another cause of plaque accumulation has to do with sugar intake. Harmful bacteria feed on sugar and the proliferation of these bacteria can lead to gum disease, which is one of the most common reasons for implant failure. Limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages, along with good oral hygiene practices, will help avoid this problem.

Keeping up with your regular dental checkups and professional dental cleanings is also important in helping prolong the life of your dental implant.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
