Dental Implant Home Care Tips

There are numerous advantages to gain with dental implants. You may be glad to have filled in a gap within your smile, but you now have to focus on the immediate aftercare. Our dentist will provide you with more details about how you should care for your smile after the surgery, but here are some quick tips to bear in mind.

Understanding the Long-Term Effects of Missing Teeth

Patients who have teeth pulled are often unaware of the impact that losing a tooth can have on their smiles. Of course, that’s not the only way to lose teeth, either. Advanced periodontal disease, trauma, and other causes often cause adults to lose teeth.

That’s why Dr. Gainer recommends replacing those teeth right away.
