How Often Should I Visit the Dentist for Check-Ups After Getting a Dental Implant?

Evaluating your dental implants every three to six months after placement is essential for successful osseointegration and hygiene. Depending on the number of implants placed and the individual's mouth, healing can take a few months. After full fusion, follow-up appointments are not as frequent and can be done two or three times a year. At the Foothill Center for Dental Implants & Oral Surgery in Southern California, we offer a full range of surgical procedures, including the placement of dental implants and the extraction of wisdom teeth.

We recommend that Pasadena residents with dental implants visit their regular dentist twice a year for checkups. This will help ensure that your dentures are properly fused with your jaw and that your implants are functioning correctly. During these checkups, your dentist or implant specialist will examine the implants and the area where they were placed. They will also ask you questions to make sure that the dental implants are not causing any problems. Additionally, it is important to have your dental implants cleaned of bacteria regularly and to have your gums checked for gum disease. By agreeing to exempt Foothill Dental Implants, including its doctors and affiliates, from any hacking or unauthorized use of your personal information by third parties, you can rest assured that your data is safe.

If you have any further questions about how to properly maintain and care for your dental implants, don't hesitate to ask.
