Investing in dental implants is a significant decision that promises a brighter, more confident smile. However, just like natural teeth, these implants require proper care to ensure they last a lifetime. At 1899 Dental Implant, we believe that with the right aftercare, your implants can offer a lifelong solution to missing teeth. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to maintain your dental implants for optimal longevity and health:

1. Daily Brushing and Flossing

The Basics Never Change: Brush your dental implants at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush. This will help in removing plaque buildup. Don’t forget to floss daily to clean those hard-to-reach areas between the implant and the adjacent teeth.

2. Use a Low-Abrasive Toothpaste

Gentle Cleaning: High-abrasive toothpaste can scratch the surface of your implants, making them more susceptible to staining. Opt for a gel-based or sensitive toothpaste to ensure gentle cleaning.

3. Avoid Smoking

For Your Overall and Oral Health: Smoking can weaken the bone structure, jeopardizing the stability of your dental implant. Moreover, tobacco can stain your implants, leading to a less appealing appearance.

4. Regular Dental Check-ups

Stay Ahead of Potential Issues: Regular visits to the dentist (every six months) are crucial. These appointments allow for professional cleanings and ensure your implants are in excellent condition.

5. Mind Your Diet

Strengthen and Protect: A balanced diet promotes stronger bone and gum health, both vital for implant longevity. While dental implants are sturdy, it’s a good idea to be cautious with very hard or sticky foods that might cause undue pressure or damage.

6. Invest in a Water Flosser

Enhanced Cleaning: A water flosser can be an excellent tool to clean around dental implants, helping to remove food particles and reduce the risk of plaque buildup.

7. Avoid Grinding and Clenching

Protect Your Investment: If you’re prone to grinding or clenching your teeth, consider wearing a nightguard. These habits can place excessive pressure on your implants, potentially leading to damage.

8. Use an Antibacterial Mouthwash

Additional Defense: Using an antibacterial mouthwash can help prevent infections around the implant area, ensuring that the gums and bone remain healthy.

I came to check their facility in Elk Grove, I called the 1899 number and the lady upfront was very nice and she scheduled me for free implant consult and when i reached their i was thrilled as facility was very modern, I got my CT scan done, no charge, whereas my oral surgeon in Sacramento wants to do it for $300 and dentist was very young, I was skeptical at first and I spoke to their other patients in the reception area and all say good things about him, I got my quote for 3 dental implants which is price of 1 dental implant from my oral surgeon here in downtown Sacramento. Go check them out they are good .
