Dr. Elnahass will provide instructions following your dental implant placement to help you make the most of your new smile. However, dental implants require no special care other than the type of maintenance you would use to keep natural teeth viable and healthy.

This means following the guidelines established by the American Dental Association, which include:

  • Brushing and flossing regularly
  • Seeing our dentist at least twice per year for exams
  • Having regular teeth cleanings

If you have dental issues, you may be given a more specific or customized schedule for dental visits.

Remember, a dental implant cannot decay, but it also will not prevent gum disease or gum infections. These types of infections can cause you to lose your implant. This is why it’s important to visit our Fredericksburg, VA dental office for exams and cleanings.  

If you are living with missing teeth, you owe it to yourself to at least learn about dental implants in Fredericksburg, VA and whether or not they’re the right choice for you!
