Taking care of your new dental implants after having a cosmetic procedure is extremely important to maintaining the longevity of your veneers or crowns. In this great video, Dr. Michael Chen explains the basics of proper implant care and describes the kinds of conditions that can cause your implants (and the rest of your mouth) to deteriorate. Treating your new chompers the way you would your original teeth is the key (as long as you’re treating them well by brushing!). Most importantly, preventing gum diseases, like gingivitis, will help your implants stay in better shape for longer. Proper oral care can mean the difference between having your implants for five years or fifty years!
