How should you care for dental implants?
Updated: 12/13/2012 5:57:21 AM

How should you care for dental implants?  People who have dental implants need to make sure that they take special care of these fake teeth. Implants are far more effective and comfortable than dentures, but it's important to care for them properly. Recently, Dental Health Magazine published an article explaining how to make sure that dental implants stay clean inside the mouth.

Once people get dental implants. they need to change their diet in order to accommodate them. In the one to two weeks following an implant surgery, patients should only consume soft foods so that they don't damage their implants. Also, while some pain following an implant surgery is normal, if a person still feels a great deal of discomfort after a few days, he or she should follow up with a dentist.

Finally, people need to brush implants just like the rest of their teeth, if they do not want them to change color or get damaged.

According to the American College of Prosthodontics, more than 178 million Americans are missing a least one tooth. These individuals should look into implants to help them replace these teeth.
