Maintenance

Oral Surgery

As with anything else, the new restorations require maintenance. Unfortunately today we do not have materials and/or technologies available that would ensure a lifetime service of the restorations. However with proper maintenance the longevity of the restorations can be greatly improved.

Maintenance consists of proper home care and regular visits to our office for check ups, which could include taking x-rays, professional cleaning and any necessary repairs. If the checkup appointments are made at the proper intervals as advised by us, any sign of a problem will be picked up at the earlier stages, making necessary repairs easier and more cost effective. Most times the earlier stages of a developing problem go unnoticed by a patient and can only be found by your dentist. Therefore having no subjective or obvious problems is not a reason for not attending your maintenance appointments.
