Just as you clean your teeth to maintain them so the same care must be expected of dental implants. By cleaning dental implants through brushing and flossing you can reduce the risks of problems occurring. Failure is uncommon but long-term maintenance is essential to ensure your investment remains healthy and part of your new mouth.
Regular sessions with your Dentist and/or dental Hygienist will ensure that you are maintaining the implants, crowns and bridges in the healthiest possible way to ensure long-term success. We will advise you of the most effective maintenance both before and after implant treatment.
Risks and Complications
Fortunately the risks associated with dental implants are very rare and you are very unlilkely to experience dental implant problems, but with any procedure there are risks and complications. Smoking and poor Oral hygiene significantly reduces long term success of your implants.

The need to replace a missing tooth could be the result of an accident or because there was no predisposition for a tooth at birth.
If you have lost several teeth there are two solutions: separate crowns on dental implants or a bridge attached to several dental implants.
Some times it is possible to place an implant at the same time as the dental extraction. it may even be possible or of advantage to do this with or without an immediate restoration. we will discuss this option with you where appropriate.
