At Harlow Dental, our number one priority has always been the health and safety of our patients. As a leading healthcare provided in our community, we wanted to reach out to all of our patients regarding the COVID-19 virus, and let you know the steps we are taking to alleviate any potential concerns. Effective immediately, Harlow Dental practices will limit our practice to EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE. So please call us right away if you are experiencing a dental emergency!

We are postponing all non-urgent dental care at this time in accordance with the recommendations of the American Dental Association and the North Carolina State Board in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The preventative measure will be in effect until April 16, 2020. Again, thank you for being a valued member of the Harlow Dental family. We appreciate your continued trust and confidence. Together we can overcome these challenging circumstances and continue your path to greater oral health! We look forward to taking care of you at your next scheduled appointment.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Image of patient with questionsWhen you invest in anything, you want to protect that investment, so it lasts a good long time. This is true of an investment in your oral health when you opt for dental implants as a tooth replacement option. The good news is that caring for dental implants is easy, so if you do it right, your dental investment can last a long time—possibly for the rest of your life.

What actions do I need to consider?

If you practiced good oral hygiene at home before your dental implant, you simply need to continue that after your implant is in place. Brush twice a day—or after each meal—and floss once a day, preferably before bedtime. Although your dental implant cannot develop decay like your natural tooth, maintaining your gum health is crucial to maintaining your dental implant.

Be sure to visit your Charlotte, NC dentist Harlow Dental twice each year to have your dental implants checked over and to have your teeth cleaned. Dr. Harlow will also continue to monitor your gum health to ensure your implant is not compromised.

If you are wondering if dental implants are right for you, don’t hesitate to give us a call to make an appointment for a consultation. Find out more about this life-changing tooth replacement option. Call us today!
