Since they are as close to a natural tooth as you can get, dental implants in Winter Park have the potential to provide exceptional longevity. With the proper care, tooth implants can serve patients for many years, even a lifetime, in some cases.
A dental infection is ultimately the enemy of a dental implant and could cause an implant to fail. This is why an impeccable home care routine with brushing twice daily and flossing once is essential. You can brush and floss easily around your implant, so sticking to an excellent home care routine shouldn't be difficult.
Regular checkups with your Winter Park dentist every six months are another critical aspect of caring for your dental implant. Your dentist will take x-rays annually to ensure your implant is healthy and adequately supports your new tooth. Your dentist will be able to detect any problems early if they should arise when it's easier to treat your implant.
Due to their excellent longevity, dental implants in Winter Park are a smart long-term investment for many people. You will have to consider replacing other tooth replacement appliances like dentures or bridges over time.
