Adapting: Reminders For Life With Dental Implants!

What are you thinking life is going to be like after you receive your dental implants and restorations? Do you have any concerns, misgivings, apprehension? If so, our Austin, MN team reminds you that you are like most patients! It is absolutely normal to wonder about what happens after the fact and whether the benefits you know are coming will also include some drawbacks. We are very glad to report to you that it’s pretty much all benefits and nothing to worry about. Consider some examples of what we mean, so you can rest easy and look forward to your soon-to-be smile transformation.

Reminder: You’ll Adapt Exceptionally Fast!

You may get the idea that turns to worry that once you receive your dental implants and restorations and head home, you’re going to feel like you have someone else’s smile in your mouth! What if it feels completely strange, you wonder? Then what will you do? The truth is, in the very beginning, it may not feel like your own smile. However, you will get used to it in the blink of an eye. Your brain and body will recognize the new structures as your own and you’ll be able to do everything you’ve been hoping for: Your eating will continue (just like before you lost your teeth), you will be able to talk without stumbling over particular sounds, and you’ll feel proud to show off your grin.

Reminder: Care Requires Very Little Change (If Any)

We know that patients are often exceptionally concerned that their smiles are going to become a huge task on a daily basis, once they receive dental implants. You may worry that this shift will certainly provide you with benefits but that you’re also going to have some serious trouble keeping it clean. Our response to this? Not at all! Brushing and flossing won’t really change (except for the fact that you may have a slightly different method than with your natural teeth). You’ll still be expected to see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning. See? Easy.

Reminder: Have Questions? We Are Always Here

Remember that if you head home and you realize you have questions about your smile after you receive dental implants, you’re not without all of the answers you could ever hope for! Our team is here to help and offer guidance, even when you just have a little, itty bitty question!
