Tooth Replacement? Tips for Keeping Your Smile Beautiful

There are many ways to improve your smile. From braces to veneers, modern-day technology has even made it possible to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are an effective alternative to replacing broken or missing teeth.

Dental implants function just like your teeth, which means they need the same type of care. Real teeth are made up of a root and crown. Dental implants consist of the crown and anchor, which is sits just beneath the gum. The titanium root is fitted into a socket, which replaces the lost tooth.

Since dental replacements look and function just like real teeth, the way you take care of them makes a huge difference in their longevity.

Benefit of Dental Implants

In addition to improving the overall aesthetics of your smile, dental implants can also make it easier to chew, improve your oral hygiene and help you speak more clearly. Here are three easy ways to protect your implants and keep them pearly white:

Avoid Hard Food

Dental implants may be strong, but they aren’t indestructible. Be mindful of what you eat and avoid eating food that is too hard. When it comes to breaking dental implants, ice and popcorn are two of the top offenders. In addition, never use your teeth to opening anything.

Use a Straw

Dental implants can become stained over time, especially if you drink coffee. When possible, use a straw to drink coffee and other types of colored beverages that can affect the integrity of your implants. Remember that your implants contain metal, so you want to avoid drinking beverages that are extremely hot.

Don’t Forget to Floss

Whether you have a full set of implants or only a few, flossing is equally important. Not only does it remove food particles that you may have missed when brushing, but it also keeps your gums healthy. Just make sure you aren’t flossing too aggressively.

Have Routine Dental Exams

Seeing your dentist every six months will keep your smile pearly white. Just like your own teeth, dental implants need regular cleaning and inspection. Your dentist will ensure that your implants are securely anchored into your jaw and that you aren’t having any issues when eating.

It’s important to ask questions. Make a list of questions and don’ be afraid to ask. From routine hygiene to things you should avoid, it’s always better to ask instead of assuming. Regardless of which smile enhancement procedure you choose, remember that not everyone is a suitable candidate. Consult with your dentist to decide which is best for you.
