Dental implants are a great solution if you want comfortable natural looking teeth. As with any restorative procedure, you must have a good at home care routing to keep your smile looking great. Good oral hygiene is required with dental implants to increase the life of the implant.

The recovery time for dental implants is approximately four to six months while the bone fuses to your new implant. The recovery time may also vary if bone grafting is needed.

After the procedure, an at home care routine must begin. Tissue surrounding the affected teeth should remain pink and show no signs of infection. Oral hygiene is a key part in making sure your implants heal properly. Our team at Brian Gurinsky DDS, MS, will discuss what at home care routine is needed, to ensure your dental implants look and feel great for years.

Here are some guidelines to follow when caring for your dental implants:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily to remove any bacteria or plaque, and use a non-abrasive type brush. A soft tooth brush is ideal to use on dental implants.
  • Avoid any products containing stannous fluoride, sodium fluoride, baking soda or stain removers. The oxide layer can be compromised if these products are used, and the implant can be prone to corrosion.
  • Non-abrasive paste should be used when brushing your teeth. This will prevent scratching the surface of the implant.
  • Floss daily using an implant specific floss. This will protect the tissue around the implants.
  • If inflammation is seen around the implants use a non-microbial rinse.
  • A Waterpik Water Flosser can be used to reduce inflammation and reach difficult areas around the implants.

Dental implants should be kept clean, and this can be done by following the care guidelines above. While you brush your teeth make sure to brush on all sides of the implant to cover all areas. If you care for your implants, they can last a very long time and provide a smile you are proud of.

With our assistance and a great at home care routine, you can lengthen the life of your dental implants and keep them looking great.

Dental implants can last a lifetime if they are cared for properly. If you are looking for a strong, permanent solution for your teeth, then dental implants may be right for you. Implants are the closest thing to having natural teeth in your mouth.  They not only look and feel natural, they are comfortable.

Implants are permanent, so there is no clicking or slipping, and they are easier for you to speak with. Before the procedure, one of the requirements our team will look for is adequate bone in the mouth. Having enough bone present will ensure the procedure is a success, and help the implants to last. If there is not enough bone, a procedure can be done to graft bone to the implant area. The bone graft will provide the support needed for pressure when chewing. Our team at Brian Gurinsky DDS, MS, will meet with you to discuss if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Dental implants are made of one of the strongest materials and are built to last upwards of 25 years. They are the strongest option for tooth replacement. Our staff will make sure you have an at home care routine to maintain the health of your implants. It is important to prevent any gum disease or inflammation around the implants so that they remain stable.

Dental implants are the strongest tooth replacement option:

  • Implants are anchored to the bone rather than a tooth’s roots. This makes implants stronger, and they are able to withstand more pressure than natural teeth.
  • Dental implants will last for years but this also depends on the strength of the patient’s existing teeth and the bone strength in the mouth.
  • A bone graft procedure can be done to provide additional support and this can lengthen the life of the implants.
  • Implants are made of titanium and are stronger than natural teeth.
  • Dental implants feel and function like natural teeth and look great.

If you are looking for a permanent solution for your teeth, then dental implants may be right for you.  Brian Gurinsky DDS, MS provides many restorative type procedures for our patients.  One of the most common procedures is dental implants.

Dental implants are the closest you will get to having natural teeth.  They feel natural in your mouth, and are very comfortable. Implants allow you to live a healthy lifestyle, and look amazing. Compared to other solutions such as dentures or bridges, implants are becoming popular because they are a more permanent solution.

Dental implants are just like artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone. They are similar to a screw that is able to bond to the jawbone. Once they are placed in the jawbone, they act as a base providing support to one or many artificial teeth known as crowns.

Once the base is completed, an abutment or connector piece is set on top of the implant.  This holds the crown securely in place, and provides support. Crowns are custom made to look and feel like your natural teeth. We match existing teeth color and shape to ensure they fit perfectly in your mouth. Osseointegration occurs as the dental implant integrates with the jawbone. This process takes time and differs for every patient. Dental implants are one of the safest restorative procedures done today, and have been used for over 30 years.

Not only are the implants reliable, they are the strongest solution for patients, and offer the best support for teeth needing replacement.

Benefits of dental implants:

  • Implants look and feel natural in your mouth and are comfortable compared to other options on the market.
  • Provides strong support for teeth needing replacement.
  • Dental implants are one of the safest and common procedures done today.
  • Patients will not face slipping or clicking with implants like with dentures or bridges.
  • Food is less likely to get stuck in the gums or between or under replacement teeth.
  • Implants are permanent, and there is no removal needed for cleaning or soaking like with dentures or bridges.
  • Dental implants are built to last years with proper care, and give patients long term value financially.

Our highly skilled team will evaluate your mouth and will meet with you to discuss how dental implants can work for you.
