Make sure to do the following after you receive a dental implant. These steps will help avoid unnecessary complications during the healing process
- Rinse regularly. Use salt water or an antiseptic solution.
- Take over-the-counter anti-inflammatories and pain medicine
- Avoid crunchy and chewy foods
After your gums have fully healed, you can treat your dental implants like your natural teeth and clean and care for them in the same way. Daily brushing and flossing are necessary to reduce the risk of gum disease. Be sure to schedule routine appointments with Castle Dental & Implants so that Dr. Eakin and his team can make sure the gum and bone tissues around the dental implants are in good shape.
