Frequently Asked Questions

Do dental implants require long-term care?

When you struggle with tooth loss or decay, you aren’t looking for a quick fix, you want a permanent solution to ensure you can eat, talk and smile well into the future.  Fortunately, you have long-term options for your overall dental health. This includes Esteem full-arch dental implants

When you replace your full row of teeth with a customized implant supported bridge, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits including regular teeth function and optimized self-esteem. To ensure the longevity of your new beautiful smile, you will need to care for your dental implants just as you would natural teeth. 

Daily care

As with all dental care, it’s important to keep up with your oral hygiene after receiving your dental implants. Luckily, the process is simple and routine. Dental implants should be cleaned, maintained and cared for the same as regular teeth, including brushing multiple times a day. Immediately following implantation, you may have additional daily care instructions, which will be communicated by your Esteem doctor. 

Regular checkups

Just like daily brushing, it’s equally important to schedule regular checkups with your doctor. Your checkups will be more frequent for the first few months after receiving your dental implants but will then slow to a steady schedule on an ongoing basis. Speak with your doctor to get a specialized plan for your specific situation. 

Pay attention to your oral health

In addition to scheduling regular checkups and properly caring for your implants, it’s important to pay attention to your oral health going forward. Of course, there may be health issues, including infections, but when you pay close attention to your overall oral health, you’ll catch these issues quickly and resolve the problem with your doctor promptly.
