Thanks to a great cosmetic or restorative dentistry service, you’re enjoying better oral health than you have in a long time. What’s more, you gain a sense of confidence you didn’t used to have. Maybe you had one or more teeth replaced with dental implants or you had a tooth capped with a CEREC crown. Whatever your case, there’s one question on your mind now, and it’s an important: how can I make it last?
After all, a cosmetic or restorative service like one of these is an investment. And as with any investment, you want to protect it. So how can you do that?
Often, the best way is through regular exams and cleanings, in addition to brushing and flossing at home. That may come as a surprise, especially if you’ve had all your teeth replaced with dental implants, but it’s true. After all, your smile is still vulnerable to common problems like gum disease, oral cancer, TMJ dysfunction, and more.
Our best advice for you, then, is to treat your restored smile the way you would if it were your natural smile. Brush at least twice a day, floss at least once, and rinse with an effective mouthwash. Be sure you also stay in touch with Dr. Salivonchik. Regular visits are a key part of maintaining great oral health.
