Restorative Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. An implant has 2 parts:

  • a metal anchor and a false tooth, similar to a crown.
  • A dental implant looks and feels like a natural tooth.
 

Tips for taking care of your restorative dentistry work 

  • Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day.
  • Electric toothbrushes can help remove plaque from your teeth and restorative work.
  • Make sure to floss around your teeth, dental implants, crowns, and bridges every day.
  • Try not to chew on hard or sticky foods. These can damage your implant, bridge, or crown.
  • Use an antibacterial mouthwash to help fight plaque bacteria around restorative work.
