How do I take care of a dental implant?
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental implant restorations in Northeast Heights, NM are the best way to replace those teeth. Dental implants are considered the most natural alternative to the teeth you were born with.
Dental implants start with a thin titanium post implanted in your jaw. Our top Northeast Heights, NM dentist completes this procedure with a life-like restoration tooth. She uses quality materials to give you a beautiful restoration that blends in naturally with your existing teeth.
The good news about dental implants is that they require no special maintenance. You treat the post and restoration the same as you would a natural tooth.
This means brushing and flossing regularly and visiting our Albuquerque, NM dental office for exams and twice-yearly cleanings.
Your post and restoration cannot decay, but you are still vulnerable to gum disease or gum infections that can cause you to lose your implant post and your restoration tooth.
Our Northeast Heights area dentist will provide all follow-up instructions after you’ve received your restoration tooth. And you can contact our dental office if you have any questions.
