How much do you know about your future with dental implants? Does the idea sound extremely attractive, thanks to all of the information you have been reading lately about the benefits? If so, you may be having a moment when you throw on the brakes because, though the tooth replacement itself sounds good, you’re starting to feel curious about maintenance. Fortunately, caring for implants is not very complicated at all, thanks to their similarity to your natural teeth. Take a moment to consider answers from your Corona dentist in response to frequently asked questions.

FAQs: Implant Care

Question: Am I going to have to brush or floss more frequently once I receive dental implants?

Answer: No! Your Corona dentist explains that you will continue brushing your teeth two times (once in the morning and once at night) and flossing once every day. Your preventive care will generally continue on as usual.

Question: Is it just as important that I brush and floss my teeth once I receive dental implants as it was when I only had natural teeth?

Answer: Yes. Many patients assume that dental hygiene takes a backseat when it comes to the significance of its effects once implants are in place. However, this is not true. It is true that your artificial tooth or teeth that top your implants cannot suffer from decay. However, the remaining teeth and gum tissue in your mouth still require care, so you can avoid issues that can lead to problems (or failure) with your implant or general oral health.

Question: Am I going to have to spend a lot of money on unexpected costs for new products?

Answer: Nope. It’s possible that your Corona dentist may suggest a particular type of floss for your implants for easier, comprehensive cleaning. However, this will require just a few dollars (in line with what you generally spend on your usual dental floss).
