Dental Implant

Taking care of dental implants is easily done by simply maintaining good oral hygiene habits. Brushing twice a day and flossing regularly will make a significant impact in keeping your implants clean and free of plaque.

Why Is Daily Care Important For Dental Implants?

Although an implant is not a natural tooth, it still requires daily care in order to prevent problems that can lead to bone loss and even removal of the implant. Even though you cannot develop cavities or decay, dental implants that are not well maintained can cause bleeding known as mucositis, which if left un-treated can develop into a condition known as peri-implantitis or irreversible bone loss.

Daily Oral Hygiene Habits For Dental Implants

Dental implants require daily cleaning in order to keep in proper condition and maintain good oral health. Good daily care habits to consider include:

  • Brushing at least twice a day with soft toothbrush or an electric toothbrush
  • Brushing after each meal
  • Using a fluoride toothpaste
  • Using a soft toothbrush or if possible a inter-dental toothbrush that is specially designed to better clean around dental implants, bridges or even braces
  • Regular flossing
  • Using an antimicrobial mouth rinse

You must maintain good daily oral care habits to prevent gum diseases or even dental implant failure. You may also avoid high amounts of sugar, starches or acids as these can be hard on teeth and lead to plaque buildup.

Keep Up Regular Dentist Visits

To most effectively care for your dental implants, Foutz Family Dentistry recommends consistent oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Even with implants, you should still make it a habit to see your dentist every 6 months for a professional exam and thorough cleaning. You will also need yearly x-rays to check that all aspects of your dental implants are functioning properly, have healed, and are staying in place. Regular dental exams and cleanings play a significant role in preventing dental problems and maintaining the overall health of your teeth and gums. During a dental checkup, the implants will be checked for looseness and gums will be evaluated.
