Improving Your Oral Health for Implants Down the Line

Posted on 3/20/2017 by Dr Jonathan Ford

When you know that down the line you are going to want implants to replace missing teeth, the best thing you can do is to take care of your teeth now. You want to make sure that you are taking care of your teeth through brushing and flossing, plus seeing your dentist like clockwork.

You should also be taking care of your gums, and making sure anything your dentist recommends you have done, you get done. If you are sure you are going to need replacement options down the line, keeping your mouth healthy now can help that be a reality when you need it.

Keeping Your Mouth as Healthy as Possible

The goal for everyone is to keep their mouth healthy. This way, they can keep their teeth for as long as possible. However, with today's testing, it is possible to find out about how long teeth are expected to last.

If you know that there is a good chance that down the line you will need to replace missing teeth, you need to do everything you can now to make sure your mouth remains healthy enough for that to happen.

This means stopping smoking, going in for preventative care, and getting restorative measures taken whenever a tooth does need to be extracted. If you keep your jaw, gums, teeth, and mouth healthy now, you can be a better candidate for implants down the line.

Your dentist can give you a pretty good idea if your teeth should last the rest of your life, or if they aren't likely to be able to do that. From there, you can decide how to best care for your teeth for as long as you possibly can.

Contact our office today, and find out what else you can do to make sure your mouth stays healthy enough for implants should you need them.
