Frequently Asked Questions
Dental implants offer many patients an excellent tooth replacement solution. And one of their significant benefits is that they don’t really require any special care after placement beyond how you would take care of your natural teeth.
Once we have placed a dental implant, patients can brush and floss their teeth as they normally would, following their regular oral hygiene routine. Your oral hygiene routine should include brushing your teeth at least twice per day along with daily flossing. You should also book routine cleans and check-ups with Bayview Dental Centre so we can remove any plaque or tartar from your teeth and gum line, checking for signs of gingivitis or gum disease, in addition to other oral health problems.
With appropriate care and attention, your dental implant may last you a lifetime, which is one reason why we love placing dental implants for patients. They can also help many patients achieve better oral health and a complete smile that makes chewing more manageable and allows them to speak more clearly.
Dental implants involve placing a titanium post in the jawbone, allowing it to fuse and become a sturdy foundation for a dental crown or bridge. This provides a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for missing teeth, with many patients experiencing improved oral health and confidence in their smile.
Yes, dental implants are considered a safe and effective option for replacing missing teeth. They have been used for several decades and have a high success rate. Like any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved, such as infection or damage to surrounding teeth or nerves. However, these risks are relatively rare and can be minimised by choosing a qualified and experienced dental professional to perform the procedure as well as following proper aftercare instructions. It’s important to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about the safety of dental implants with your dentist or oral surgeon.
Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth, and with proper care, they can last for many years, even a lifetime. The longevity of dental implants depends on several factors, such as the patient’s oral hygiene habits, overall health, and the location of the implant. In general, dental implants have a success rate of 95–98%, meaning that they can last for 20 years or more. However, this can vary depending on factors such as bone density and the patient’s lifestyle habits (e.g., smoking). Regular dental check-ups and cleanings, as well as good oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing, can help ensure the longevity of dental implants.
