Tips to ensure your Dental Implants last for life!

 teeth health smile dentistHave you replaced missing teeth with dental implants? Dental implants provide a strong, flawless and lasting solution for people who have lost their teeth. The more you care for your implants, the longer your crown will last and so will your smile. Here are simple ways of taking care of dental implants to ensure they last for life.

Key takeaways:

– Do everything that your dentist tells you, from how to clean your mouth to what you should eat.

– During the healing process, avoid very hot or cold drinks, don’t poke or roughly brush the site but ensure there are no food particles around the implant.

– Once you are healed, brush with a soft bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste, use unwaxed tape floss and regularly utilise a mouthwash.

Protect your smile by regularly visiting the dentist for check-ups and following instructions.

Dr. Colin Conway BDS BSc South Africa

With more than 20 years experience in dental practice, Colin has never been more excited and passionate about his dentistry!

Colin grew up in South Africa, and completed studies toward research science and dentistry degrees in South Africa. He moved from Cape Town to the UK in April 2002, and has worked in some of the UK’s leading dental practices - gaining the experience and confidence to offer a wide range of dental services.

Says Colin: "I often joke that I moved to the UK for the weather! But actually I moved because the UK offers world-class opportunities for dentists to expand their knowledge and skillset, a fact which I have embraced. I am equally comfortable doing a dental check-up and cleaning, placing a dental implant or fitting braces to straighten teeth."

Colin lives in Windsor with his partner and two dogs, enjoying the city/country balance offered by its close proximity to London. On weekends, you’re likely to find him cycling along the river or in some of the great parks surrounding the town.
