Not communicating all your lifestyle habits

Some habits affect the dental implant process leading to complications and implant failure. For example, tobacco use and alcoholism interfere with healing after surgery

Failing to report dental implant problems immediately

Fortunately, the issues resolve themselves quickly with medication and home care. However, inform the dentist if the problems  persist.

Skipping routine dental visits and follow-ups

The dental implant process takes approximately six months. During this time, you must visit the dentist regularly to ensure positive progress

Taking the wrong foods

You should take soft, easy-to-chew foods after implant surgery. These include milkshakes, applesauce, soup, or mashed potatoes.

When getting dental implants in Auburn, the dentist will instruct you on caring for the mouth. You risk implant failure and complications if you ignore or deviate from them
