One of the best ways to rebuild your smile after you’ve suffered from tooth loss is to replace them with dental implants – biocompatible posts that mimic your lost teeth roots. With the right care and maintenance, they can even last for life as a well-integrated part of your jawbone structure. At our Ft. Worth, TX, dental implant office, we can help you better ensure that your implants last by offering comprehensive, in-house treatment and helping you care for your new smile for life.
Make sure your oral health is up to par
Mimicking your healthy, natural tooth structure has its perks when it comes to rebuilding your smile, but dental implants also require the same level of care your teeth do to remain healthy. For your jawbone to receive them properly, your oral tissues and structures should be in good health, which means the absence of a decaying tooth, progressive gum disease, or other chronic oral health concern. Therefore, the first step to getting dental implants is to schedule a comprehensive examination to determine if any existing issues should be addressed before your implant procedure.
Stop smoking or chewing tobacco
Tobacco use is one of the most harmful things you can do to your smile, as well as your overall health and wellbeing. In the case of tooth loss and dental implants, it can also become both a contributing cause to your tooth loss and a complication to your ability to receive dental implants. If you smoke or chew tobacco, then the damage it can do to your teeth, periodontal tissues, jawbone structure, and more can make it impossible for you to receive dental implants. If you already have implants, then continued tobacco use can compromise them and the jawbone surrounding them.
Choose a dentist with the right experience
The most important tip to making sure your implant procedure is a success is to choose an implant dentist that has the experience and technology to offer high-quality treatment. For example, at our office, we’ve been dedicated solely to placing and restoring dental implants for more than a decade and have more than 80 years’ worth of combined experience in implant dentistry. We know how to successfully place and restore your implants all under one roof, and to help you ensure that your new implant posts last for life.
