Anyone who has had dental implants is aware of the great benefits they can bring.

They’re the perfect substitute for a natural tooth and when fitted with dental crowns or bridges, can restore confidence in our smiles. What you might not know, however, is how to look after dental implants. If you need dental implants information and need some inside expert knowledge regarding dental implants care, Ewan Bramley Care Dental Implants has all of the know-how you’ll ever need.

What happens after I get my dental implant(s)?

After dental implants have been fitted, the bone that is in your jaw needs time to develop and grow. This can take up to two to three months on average. Occasionally dental implants may well be steady and stable enough when they’re fitted so that the artificial teeth can be fitted sooner than expected.

If you’re having up to three teeth replaced, temporary dentures could be placed in the meantime. If you already have dentures, you can keep on using these while the dental implants are settling.

Are dental implants tough to clean?

Absolutely not. However your aftercare is vital if you want to have a successful and long-lasting implant. If you have them fitted at Ewan Bramley Dental Care, our team will give you all of the advice you need so that you can look after implants properly. Cleaning in and around dental implants is just like cleaning natural teeth, but if they’re in an area that’s hard to reach, we’ll show you how to do it. With regular visits to one of our hygienists and expert advice, you’ll have everything you need to get the best results.

I’ve had gum disease and gum problems before. Will I get this again if I have implants?

Well, if you don’t look after them properly you will. It’s as simple as that. But, if you have regular check ups and keep them nice and clean, you shouldn’t have any issues. If you’re a smoker, you will have to take a lot more care of your implants.. If you want to stop smoking and are ready to make a positive change to your lifestyle, we can help.

What happens if I damage my dental implants or have an accident?

Dental implants can be repaired just like a natural tooth if you have an accident or trauma to the face. Remember to wear a mouth guard if you’re involved in sporting activities or you have a job that involves moving objects. It’s not the end of the world if a replacement tooth is damaged, however. In most cases, they can be taken off the implant and a new one can be fitted. New implants can also be placed if the problem runs a little deeper.
