How to Make Your Dental Implants Last Longer

14/12/2022

Dental implants are the most durable technique of tooth replacement because they can last up to 30+ years, which is one of their best qualities. Many individuals can actually maintain a dental implant for the remainder of their life. But for an implant to last a long time, regular maintenance is necessary. Discover more from Kettering Dentists below, along with the best practises you can follow for an implant that will last longer.

Select A Quality Implant Dentist

An implant that lasts begins with skilled implant surgery. Our dentists at Kettering Dentists have extensive experience placing dental implants. They will utilise the most up-to-date technology and instruments to create a customised treatment plan that will lead to an implant that will withstand chewing pressures and endure the test of time.

Ensure You have a Good Oral Hygiene

You must maintain healthy gums and teeth in order to maintain the health of your implant. Make sure you floss once daily and brush for at least two minutes twice a day. After flossing, rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash is another effective technique to get rid of food debris and freshen your breath.

Get Regular Six-Month Oral Check-ups and Teeth Cleanings

Make an appointment with your dentist for a teeth cleaning and oral examination every six months. The dentist will then inspect your mouth, checking the condition of your teeth, gums, and dental implant. You may prolong the life of your implants by keeping up with regular check-ups and maintaining excellent dental health.

Quit Using Tobacco And Smoking

If you continue to smoke while your mouth heals from implant surgery, your chance of problems will significantly increase. In fact, many dentists will decline to operate on an implant in a tobacco or smoker.

Smoking and using tobacco, however, can increase your chance of developing oral cancer and gum disease even after you have recovered. You must stop smoking and using oral tobacco if you want to maintain the health of your mouth and make sure your implant lasts as long as feasible.

If You Grind Your Teeth, Get a Night Guard!

Although teeth grinding won’t lead to the failure of your implant, it might hasten the deterioration and loosening of your implant repair, such as a dental crown, which is uncomfortable. Additionally, it’s bad for your healthy teeth that you still have because it can result in early tooth deterioration and possibly jaw problems.

After having a dental implant placed at Kettering Dentists, it is a good idea to acquire a new bespoke night guard if you grind your teeth at night. This will safeguard both your natural teeth and your implant.
