Implant Care Near You
Implants are for individuals missing teeth and are sometimes used instead of dentures or bridges. A screw-like implant replaces the root of the tooth, and artificial teeth are set in place. While implant surgeries are successful most of the time (90-95 percent), taking proper care of them is important.

Care for Implants
Your implants can last for 25 years or more if you take good care of them. Just as with regular teeth, it’s important to brush twice a day and floss every day. To reach difficult areas, you can talk with your dentist about getting other dental tools, such as water flossers.
Regular visits for cleanings and exams are still vital for your oral health, even with artificial teeth. Come to your Edmonton dental clinic at least twice a year unless your dentist says you need more attention.
When to Find Implant Care Near You
While it’s not very common, dental implants can become infected. Here are a few signs to look out for that will tell you to find a dental clinic in Edmonton:
Redness and Inflammation
Swelling is common after dental surgery, but it should go away. Contact your dentist if you find that your swelling has not gone down and your gums are inflamed.
Pain and Issues Chewing
Pain after a big dental surgery is expected. Your dentist will suggest pain medication to help. However, if the pain persists and begins disrupting your daily routine, you may have an infection.
Besides infection, you may have to visit the dentist if you find your implant feels loose or gets knocked out. It is in your best interest to find implant care in Edmonton right away if that happens.
