Dental implants have changed the lives of many people as both a cosmetic remedy for missing teeth and as a functional replacement for multiple teeth due to dental decay or disease. You're making an investment in good oral health and a confident smile when you choose dental implants. Taking good care of your dental implants is very similar to caring for your natural teeth; however, there are some important cleaning and maintenance instructions that can help you avoid infection of the tissue surrounding the implant-supported tooth.

According to the National Association of Dental Plans, in 2016 there were approximately 249.1 million people in the United States with dental insurance coverage of some form. That's roughly 77 percent of the population. For people who do have dental insurance coverage, a lot of the dental work they need is covered at least in part by their benefits. However, the other part of the population who have no dental insurance benefits often feel they have no options for getting the dental treatments they need. Thankfully, CareCredit is an excellent option available to help those with little or no dental coverage get the treatments they need when they need them.
