The Top Do’s and Don’ts of Tooth Implants

Tooth implants are an innovative, natural-looking, and durable denture solution that has a 98% rate of success. However, taking good care of them is vital for long-term success. Following your denturist’s home-care advice and scheduling regular check-ups will ensure your new teeth last for many years.

Here are the top Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to caring for your tooth implants:

DO: Follow a Well-Balanced Diet

Following the right diet is especially important right after your tooth implant procedure. Not only will you have to eat soft foods, but adding highly nutritious items to your diet is crucial for a speedy and successful recovery.

After your implant surgery, you should AVOID:

  • spicy food
  • acidic foods such as citrus and tomatoes
  • any kind of seeds and nuts
  • any hard or crumbly foods such as popcorn and crackers
  • sticky or chewy foods

Remember: Eating foods that are too hard or tough will put a strain on your surgery site and may even cause it to reopen or your implant to become irritated and fail.


DO: Talk to Your Denturist About Tooth Implant Maintenance

After your procedure, it’s important to talk to your denturist about maintaining your tooth implants. This is crucial to ensure the longevity of your replacement teeth. Here are five simple tips to follow:

  • practice good habits including sticking to a healthy diet and keeping hydrated
  • brush your implant twice a day
  • rinse after every meal
  • remember to floss at least once a day
  • visit your denturist regularly for check-ups and cleans

Denture Implant Care Tips


DO: Be Patient

Remember, getting implants is not an easy procedure and it will take time for you to recover and enjoy the final result. By not rushing back into your regular routine and taking adequate time to recuperate, you will ensure you heal properly.


DON’T: Smoke

One of the main causes of tooth implant failure is the picking up of bad habits. After your procedure, it’s crucial that you keep away from certain lifestyle choices such as smoking and chewing tobacco.

Keeping your teeth and body as healthy as possible will not only ensure the success of your implant surgery, but it’ll also keep your replacement teeth in good condition for many years.


DON’T: Procrastinate

If you are suffering from tooth loss, don’t wait to visit your denturist! Whether you opt for tooth implants or traditional full/partial dentures, getting replacement teeth is crucial to ensure the health of your mouth, gums, and remaining teeth.

At Future Smiles, we offer the following denture solutions:

  • traditional full dentures
  • traditional partial dentures
  • flexible partials
