Phoenix-area patients who see Dr. Donald Wilcox at Desert Smiles in Glendale for an implant dentistry treatment will leave understanding exactly how to care for their new and improved smile.
But here are the broad strokes:
At home, tending to your dental implant, regardless of whether it includes just one crown or bridge or several, is much the same as looking after natural teeth. You will need to brush and floss regularly, and schedule routine dental hygiene treatments.
Brushing, flossing and regular cleanings are also the surest step to prevent fresh dental health problems from developing.
In some very specialized dental implant cases, a patient may need to schedule an additional annual checkup with a surgical specialist. But rest assured that Dr. Wilcox will guide you through the entire dental implant process including best practices for long-term care.
