While the process of obtaining dental implants from your dentist, Steve Pleickhardt, DDS at American Dental in Gainesville, might be time consuming,the process of caring for your dental implants after you have them could not be simpler. Not only do dental implants look and feel like your own natural teeth, but you take care of them the same way too!
With dental implants from American Dental in Gainesville, your dentist won't require you to use any special products, tools or procedures. You don't have to take your teeth out to clean them and then put them back in again. You simply take care of them like you would your own natural teeth. Brush, floss, rinse and keep regular dental check-ups and your dental implants will continue to look great for years to come.
Plus, dental implants even come with a few extra benefits that your own, natural teeth do not offer. For example, they cannot get cavities and they are resistant to staining. If your teeth were stain or cavity prone before, this news should come as a great relief.
Of course, just because your dental implants can't stain or get cavities doesn't mean that it isn't important to take care of them. The rest of your teeth can still stain, which would cause your teeth to appear mismatched. They are not immune to everyday wear and tear, and they still collect food particles and bacteria, which can make your breath smell bad. Furthermore, the rest of your mouth, including your gums and the lining of your cheeks, still need to be taken care of as well.
If the process of deciding which tooth restoration method to choose or which dentist to visit has been stressful, you can rest assured knowing that the hassle is nearly over. Dental implants from Dr. Pleickhardt, your trusted dentist at American Dental in Gainesville, are not only safe, durable, and effective, but they are also incredibly easy to care for as well!
