As a renowned implantologist, his reputation and expertise with teeth implants precede him. The beauty of teeth implants is that they provide patients with renewed freedom in many different areas of life—from regaining the ability to eat and drink without worry, to the freedom to speak and smile without embarrassment, teeth implants truly change lives. In order to be sure you enjoy your new teeth for years and years to come, you will need to care for them properly. And while they don’t require special care, it is important that you care for your teeth implants regularly and properly.

Teeth Implants Post-Op Care

When discussing the care of teeth implants, it’s important to start with how one should care for them immediately following implant surgery. To protect the investment that you’ve made in your health, it’s important that you begin taking steps to care for your new teeth as soon as you return home following the placement of your teeth implants.

Dr. Kissel will provide you with detailed instructions regarding how you should care for your new implants in the days following your procedure. These instructions will include topics such as:

  • Avoid brushing your teeth on the day of surgery. Instead, use the prescribed oral rinse before bedtime. Once Dr. Kissel gives you the okay, you can begin brushing your teeth gently.
  • Be sure to take some time to rest after your teeth implants surgery. Resting is imperative for your body to heal properly, no matter the surgery you’ve had completed. While Dr. Kissel uses special microsurgery techniques you may still be tired after your procedure.
  • Dr. Kissel may recommend you avoid hard and crunchy foods immediately following the placement of your teeth implants. This will just ensure your comfort in the days after your procedure but will not be a long-term requirement. After all, that’s the beauty of teeth implants—their stability allows you to eat anything you wish once they’ve healed!

Caring for Your Teeth Implants on a Daily Basis

As we mentioned, teeth implants do not require any special ongoing care in order to maintain them! However, that doesn’t mean that your new teeth will be carefree. You will need to care for them daily as you would natural teeth in order to ensure they last a lifetime.

To properly care for your teeth implants on a daily basis, you should brush twice daily, floss once a day, use antibacterial mouthwash once a day, and visit your general dentist for biannual cleanings. Additionally, as a board-certified periodontist, it’s important that you keep appointments with Dr. Kissel so he can ensure your gums are healthy and strong as well.
