It will take approximately 3 – 6 months before the post(s) is strong enough. During this time, your dentist will most likely place a temporary restoration or cover over the post for protection. Once your dentist determines the post(s) is strong enough, they will attach your customized crown, bridge, or dentures. Slight adjustments may be necessary to make sure your restoration is comfortable and secure. It may take a little time for you to adjust to your restoration, but over time, you should be smiling, eating, and talking with ease.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR IMPLANT-SUPPORTED RESTORATION
One of the biggest advantages of an implant-supported restoration is that it should be cared for just like your natural teeth. That includes brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste in addition to flossing at least once a day. Many dentists also suggest rinsing your mouth with mouthwash to help rinse away debris, bacteria, and plaque. Along with a great home oral care routine, you need to go to a dentist in Columbus, OH at least twice a year for an annual oral health exam and bi-annual professional cleaning. During these exams, your dentist can check the health and wear of your restoration. They will let you know if the restoration and/or implant needs to be repaired or replaced.
