Caring For Your Dental Implants | Dentist Rochester Hills

Dentist Rochester, MI

Congratulations on taking the step towards a brighter, healthier smile with dental implants! At Jeffrey B Faycurry DDS in Rochester Hills, we understand the importance of preserving your investment in your oral health. Here are some essential tips for caring for your dental implants post-procedure.

Immediately after receiving your dental implants, you may experience some tenderness in your mouth, which typically subsides within ten to fourteen days. During this time, it’s crucial to stick to a diet of soft, warm soups and cold foods to avoid aggravating the area. We also advise against smoking during the healing process to ensure optimal results.

While the healing time for dental implants can vary from patient to patient, it generally takes between two to four months for the mouth to fully recover. Rest assured, any discomfort experienced during this period is typically minimal.

Once your mouth has healed, maintaining your dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. While implants are resistant to cavities, they are still susceptible to wear and tear over time. Neglecting proper oral hygiene can increase the risk of peri-implantitis, a condition that affects the tissues surrounding the implant.

To keep your dental implants in top condition, we recommend:

1. Brushing and flossing regularly: Just like natural teeth, dental implants require daily brushing and flossing to remove plaque and food particles.
2. Using antimicrobial mouthwash: Incorporating an antimicrobial mouthwash into your oral hygiene routine can help reduce the risk of infection around the implant.
3. Regular dental check-ups: Schedule routine check-ups with Dr. Jeffrey B Faycurry DDS to ensure the health and stability of your dental implants.
4. Avoiding hard foods and habits: Steer clear of hard foods and habits like nail-biting or chewing on ice, as they can damage the implant and surrounding tissues.

By following these simple steps and visiting our office regularly, you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for years to come. Contact Jeffrey B Faycurry DDS in Rochester Hills today to schedule your consultation and take the first step towards optimal oral health!
