Our dental implants are crafted to provide lasting results, boosting not only your confidence but also your enjoyment of life’s simple pleasures, like savoring your favorite foods. To ensure the longevity and vitality of your restored smile, we’ve curated a comprehensive dental implant care guide tailored to your needs. Whether you’ve recently undergone our New Teeth Now procedure or are considering dental implants, this guide is designed to support you every step of the way.

Immediate Post-Surgery Care:

The days and weeks following your dental implant procedure are crucial for optimal healing and implant integration. Here are some essential tips to follow during this sensitive period:

  1. Stitch Care: Avoid pulling stitches; they will dissolve or fall out on their own within 7-10 days.
  2. Swelling Management: Apply ice to affected areas for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off during the first 2 days post-procedure.
  3. Gentle Cleaning: Use a soft-bristle toothbrush to clean your teeth, avoiding the surgical site directly.
  4. Rinsing: Start saltwater rinses 24 hours after the procedure to promote healing.
  5. Gap Cleaning: Utilize a curved-tip irrigation syringe to gently wash food from the gap between your prosthetic and gums.
  6. Dietary Restrictions: Stick to soft foods and avoid straws, acidic beverages, and smoking to support healing.

Long-Term Implant Care:

Once you’ve healed from your dental implant procedure, ongoing care is vital for maintaining your oral health and the longevity of your implants. Here’s how to ensure your smile stays bright for years to come:

  1. Invest in a Water Flosser: A water flosser effectively removes buildup around your implants and bridges, promoting oral hygiene.
  2. Quit Smoking: Smoking increases the risk of infection and implant failure, so kick the habit for good.
  3. Attend Regular Cleanings: Routine dental cleanings are essential for keeping your implants in top condition.
  4. Wear Your Mouthguard: If advised, wear a mouthguard at night to prevent teeth grinding and clenching.
  5. Seek Professional Help: If you experience any issues or discomfort, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for assistance.

Zygomatic Implant Care:

Caring for zygomatic implants follows the same principles as standard implants placed during the New Teeth Now procedure. Our experienced oral surgeons ensure the success of every implant, prioritizing your unique oral health needs.

Dental Implant Success:

While following our care recommendations significantly increases the likelihood of implant success, complications may arise within the first few weeks post-procedure. Our skilled oral surgeons are here to address any concerns and provide expert guidance tailored to your situation.
