Dental implants are a great option for individuals who have recently lost a tooth either due to dental care or some sort of accident. By surgically implanting a metal rod into your gum, the rod will act as your tooth’s natural root— leaving you with the ability to chew and speak as normal. However, did you know that there are many more benefits to getting dental implants? Read on to learn more.
Unlike dentures or even some dental crowns, as long as they are properly cared for, dental implants can last an entire lifetime. However, in order to ensure that your implants do last a lifetime, it’s important to follow the following regimen.
- Brush and floss twice a day
- Avoid chewing on things like like plastic or ice
- Visit Dr. Nazila Bidabadi twice a year for checkups

Although your mouth might be a bit swollen and sensitive right after the dental implant procedure, you will feel back to your normal self in no time.
