Three Tips for Healthy Dental Implants Atlanta, GA
Dental Instruction

Proper home care and hygiene can make a huge impact on how successful your dental implant investment is. When cared for properly, well-integrated implants can—and should—last for the rest of your life.

Clean Your Implants Properly

Dental implants require similar oral hygiene techniques as your natural teeth once did.

The best thing about dental implants is the ability to treat them as anatomical teeth. You need to brush and floss them daily and plan regular six-month checkups. Antimicrobial mouthwash is also helpful.

Use The Right Tools

To clean difficult-to-reach areas, you may need to use additional hygiene aids. Such as a water flosser or floss threader. For example, you’ll need something to clean underneath full arch implants (All-on-4) or implant-supported bridges. It is important to clean both the implant restoration and the gums adjacent to the tooth replacement to prevent any infections.

It’s ideal to invest in a high-quality electric toothbrush. Use it twice daily for 2 minutes. Be sure to use an interdental brush, tufted floss, water flosser, or a threader to clean the implant abutment. Our Atlanta dentist or hygienist might recommend specific hygiene aids depending on what type of implant restoration you have.

Prevent Gum Inflammation

Your hygiene plan will help prevent gum inflammation, gingivitis, or peri-implantitis from developing around dental implants. Good oral hygiene is crucial because peri-implantitis is a leading cause of implant failure. By keeping your implants clean, you’re ensuring they last as long as possible.

Caring for your new smile is easier than ever. Especially with dental implants in Atlanta. If you have missing teeth or are due for a checkup, visit Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta to learn how we can help.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

James R.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
