When choosing which tooth replacement option is best, you have a number of factors to consider. In addition to cost, convenience and the length of the procedure, you'll also need to consider how difficult it will be to maintain your new teeth once the procedure is over.

Thankfully, when you visit Midtown Dental Studio in Atlanta for dental implants, the care and maintenance of your implants could not be Dental Implantseasier. You don't have to avoid any foods or use any special cleaning products or tools. Simply follow these three steps instead.

1. Practice Routine Oral Hygiene

The primary way you will take care of your dental implants is by continuing to brush and floss every day. While your dental implants cannot get cavities, routine brushing will help keep your mouth clean and your breath fresh. Plus, it can help you avoid serious conditions such as gum disease.

2. Visit Your Midtown Atlanta Dentist Regularly

Next, be sure to make and keep routine appointments with Dr. Travon Holt at Midtown Dental Studio in Atlanta. Dr. Holt will remove any plaque that has built up on or in between your teeth, and will check your mouth for signs of infection or disease. Your teeth aren't the only part of your mouth that need to stay healthy. Your dentist will help keep the rest of your mouth healthy as well.

3. Let Your Dental Hygienist Know About Your Dental Implants

When you come in for a routine cleaning, be sure to let the dental hygienist know that you have dental implants. Implants are made of a different material than your natural teeth are, and your hygienist will want to use special tools to keep from scratching them.

Dental implants from Dr. Holt at Midtown Dental Studio in Atlanta offer a number of advantages. Take care of your teeth by following the three steps listed above and you'll be able to continue enjoying these advantages for years to come.
