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.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
