Maintaining oral health after dental implant treatment near Marietta

Oral hygiene is the base from which we all build our level of oral health. This is just as true after teeth have been restored with dental implants as when we have all of our natural teeth. In recent years, dental implant treatment has become increasingly popular, as our patients from Marietta and surrounding areas discover the immense benefit of this restorative care. It is important to maintain oral health after treatment.

Dental implants are tiny posts that your dentist inserts into the jawbone for the replacement of missing roots. These posts are made from corrosion-resistant titanium. Implant posts can hold a single crown restoration, a dental bridge, or stabilize full dentures. These restorations, like implant posts, are also fabricated from materials that will resist corrosion from bacterial acid or various types of foods. The resilience of the materials used in this restorative process, however, does not mean that oral health can be neglected. We encourage our patients to take excellent care of their teeth and gums so that gum disease does not affect the longevity of the implants.

If all teeth are being replaced, the goal of oral hygiene is to remove harmful bacteria from the mouth and dentures so that gums can remain healthy. Daily brushing and flossing, as well as continued professional care as recommended by your dentist, is vitally important to bacteria removal. Brushing is a two-minute activity that should be performed carefully, with each tooth receiving gentle attention. Non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush should be used on restorations so that tiny abrasions do not develop, giving bacteria a place to hide.

With dental implants or without, brushing is most effective when gentle pressure is used. Dentists consistently see patients who, in their commitment to oral care, brush too aggressively. The result of brushing with too much pressure is what we call "toothbrush abrasions." These abrasions may occur on restorations, as well as on delicate gum tissue. Overly aggressive brushing, intended to clean the teeth and gums, can actually lead to gum recession and a greater risk for gum disease. To keep your restored smile as healthy as possible, twice-a-day gentle brushing followed by flossing is ideal.

Studies have shown that, when properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime. Ensure the life of your restorations with gentle home and professional care. Contact Thirty-two Dental for your visit today.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
