Easily Take Care Of Dental Implants With No Hygiene Changes

Don’t give yourself extra oral hygiene work when you have to replace damaged or missing teeth! If you want to get the closest thing to your natural chompers in performance and in the level of care required, call Panama City Smiles at 850-588-0185 to book a free consultation and find out your options for dental implants.

We have helped countless patients improve their appearance and oral function with a variety of restorative dentistry options at our Panama City, FL dentist office. If you’ve been given advice by another dentist that you’re unsure about, feel free to make an appointment with us for a free second opinion.

By restoring your smile to its former glory, you’ll be able to enjoy compliments about your appearance from friend, family, and other loved ones. But repairing your chompers will also help you:

  • Regain your dietary freedom, allowing you to eat your favorite foods again, including juicy steak, fresh vegetables, and other hearty, difficult-to-chew food
  • Chew your food more thoroughly so you can digest it better and maybe even improve your overall health as well
  • Avoid damaging remaining teeth since you won’t be putting undue stress on certain teeth

Compared to other options for replacing teeth, dental implants are pretty much the closest thing to your actual pearly whites. They offer a variety of perks because they:

  • Are extremely convincing in look, feel, and function
  • Do not require any preparation of your healthy remaining teeth in order to be placed
  • Can restore your strong bite by up to 90 percent of what it used to be with your natural teeth
  • Can last for many, many years or even the rest of your life if you take care of them properly
  • Replace your tooth roots and stimulate your jaw, helping to prevent bone deterioration, maintain jaw health, and preserve the structure of your face so you’ll look younger for longer

We accept a variety of payment options to make getting the treatments you want and need a little less stressful for you. We can even come up with a payment schedule that works for you or take third-party financing through CareCredit.

Clean Your Dental Implants Just Like Your Actual Teeth

As outlined above, implants to replace teeth have a lot of advantages compared to other restorative treatments, but here we’ll focus on how easy they are to take care of. If you maintain good oral hygiene habits as you’re supposed to, you have what it takes to care for dental implants. All you need to do is:

  • Brush your teeth, gums, tongue, and palate twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Floss between all of your pearly whites at least once daily
  • Visit your dentist every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam
  • Rinse your mouth with an ADA-approved mouthwash if desired or recommended by a professional

Like your natural teeth, you should also avoid behaviors that can damage implants. To avoid cracking or otherwise damaging your replacement teeth, do NOT:

  • Chew on ice
  • Use your teeth as a tool to open bottles or other containers
  • Bite down on certain candies or other hard foods
  • Bite your nails
  • Grind or clench your teeth
  • Brush your teeth too forcefully or frequently
  • Play contact sports without an athletic mouthguard

We offer a variety of options for restoring implants at our Panama City, FL dentist office so you can get just the right treatment for your situation. Here are some of the dental implant options we can provide:

  • Dental crowns to completely replace individual teeth, roots and all
  • Dental bridges so we can fill the gap left by multiple adjacent missing teeth
  • Denture to restore an entire arch of teeth in your upper or lower jaw or both for a full-mouth reconstruction

In some cases, we may be able to give you a same-day smile treatment. In this case, we’ll perform any necessary extractions, place your implants, and restore them all in one visit to our office!

No matter the particular implant procedure you visit us for, we will do all we can to make your experience a patient-centered one. We use advanced dental technology to ensure precise treatments and can provide a variety of comfort options in our spa-like care rooms, including:

  • Earbuds with music to relax you
  • TVs so you can watch shows or movies while we work
  • Warm hand towels
  • Soft pillows
