Tips for Successful Implant Surgery
Dental implant surgery is a safe procedure, but it is important that the provider you choose has the highest credentials and the best technology for excellent results. At Yakima Valley Periodontics, you can have confidence in Dr. Iasella's expertise, and we want to share with you some tips for a successful dental implant treatment.
Consider the Quality of Your ImplantsWe use the highest quality dental implants here in our practice. Quality of materials is also an important aspect of post-operative healing. Implants made out of lesser quality materials could fit poorly, which could allow bacteria to access tiny spaces. If you have questions about the types of implant materials we use, please call us at (509) 452-7115 for more information.
Lessen or Quit SmokingIf you are a smoker, there's a good chance that your doctors have explained the risks of smoking to you ahead of time. Smoking is the top cause of mouth infections and could lead to implant failure. Quitting smoking - for good - is the best thing that you can do when it comes to ensuring the long-term success of your implants.
