One of the largest advantages of dental implants is their ability to integrate into the jawbone and become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can replace a tooth’s missing root, and the only option that can boast providing a lifetime of support. Fresno implant dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake would be happy to discuss this with you in greater detail during your dental implant consultation.

Caring for Dental Implants

Dental implants are capable of offering a permanent solution for tooth replacement, but cannot provide this benefit on their own. To ensure long-lasting results, you will need to properly care for your implant.

Caring for a dental implant is just as simple as caring for your natural teeth. Brushing after every meal and snack, flossing once to twice a day, and visiting Dr. Miyake twice a year for cleanings and examinations is often all it takes to keep your implant and all surrounding bone and tissue strong. If potential issues are detected during your regularly scheduled visits, Dr. Miyake will discuss ways you can strengthen your at-home routine and help ensure your dental implants last for a lifetime.

If you live in or around Fresno, California and are missing one or more teeth, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, DDS to schedule a dental implant consultation and learn more about these long-lasting dental restorations.
