Modern dental implants are made of sturdy, strong, long-lasting materials. That’s part of the reason why a dental implant procedure from our Santa Monica implant dentist may last you the rest of your life.

Before you undergo your procedure with Dr. Ana Brightleaf, our implant dentist will make sure you understand the important details of maintenance and care. Once your dental implants are fully integrated into your jaw, you’ll have to give them the same attention and care you do your natural teeth.

That means:

  • Brushing at least twice a day, hopefully after meals
  • Flossing once a day
  • Avoiding foods and drinks that stain teeth and eat away at enamel
  • Coming in for regularly scheduled cleanings

If you follow these basic dental hygiene steps, you can expect your dental implants to last the rest of your life.

Dental implants have two parts: a titanium implant post that is inserted into your jaw and a custom-made porcelain crown. Porcelain and titanium are both strong, durable materials, and when placed by an experienced implant dentist their stability is only improved.

All of this means that you can trust our implant dentist to give you a dental implant that will serve you well over the course of decades.
